I am happy to announce that President Proctor, in consultation with the personnel committee of the OCC trustee board, extended an invitation to Brice Wurdeman to become the next Director of Intercultural Studies. Brice will take the helm from Chris DeWelt beginning in the 2021-22 school year. Brice earned his Bachelor of Biblical Literature from Ozark Christian College in 2004 and his Master of Arts in Christian Ministry from Liberty University in 2014.
Brice has served as the executive director and professor at Windward Islands School of Evangelism since 2011. Under his leadership, the college purchased and moved to a new campus, increased enrollment, built a wide network of supporters, paid off all debt, and developed strong partnerships with local churches. Prior to that ministry, Brice served as an instructor at the Sonlight Academy in Port-de-Paix, Haiti, and as a youth minister in Fort Collins, Colorado, and Schell City, Missouri.
Brice writes, “During my time in ministry and missions, I have always felt a deep connection and passion for the training of Christian leaders, which Ozark Christian College has long been devoted to doing. I am excited to come to OCC as Director of Intercultural Studies to continue the legacy of pouring into future church leaders and missionaries around the world.” We are excited that Brice has answered the call to serve the Lord with the Ozark family.
Brice and his wife Amanda (Muter) have been married since 2005 and are the proud parents of six children: Naiyah, Beckett, Paxson, Kensington, Greeley, and Rusk. We look forward to having the Wurdeman family join ours as we continue to train men and women for Christian service. Please join me in welcoming Brice to our full-time faculty.
