Million Dollar Gift and Dorm Renovation

By: President Matt Proctor

We're excited to announce that on August 1, OCC received a gift of $1 million from longtime friend of the college Rick Bronson. Rick, his wife Kat, and his son Chad (OCC ’11) believe deeply in Ozark’s mission and trust that God will use their gift to inspire others to give. “This is just our five loaves and two fishes,” said Rick. “Like that little boy with his lunch, we’re putting it in God’s hands to multiply it.” We are grateful for Rick and Kat—for their faith, their generosity, and their desire to see men and women trained for Christian service.

We're also excited to announce that this gift will allow us to renovate Alumni Hall during the 2018-2019 school year.

Work on Alumni Hall will begin in early September, and we're grateful for the flexibility from Judie and our Alumni ladies, allowing this project to proceed. “This all seems like God’s timing,” said Judie, “and I know he’s got it all covered.” Please join me in thanking God for this generous gift, for the Bronson family, and for God’s faithful provision throughout Ozark’s history. Pray also for the renovation as it begins, and as students arrive on campus in the next few weeks, let’s ask for God’s continued guidance in preparing workers for his harvest field.
