Ozark Christian College is excited to announce the launch of an all-new master’s program, with courses beginning one year from now in the fall of 2022. As with Ozark’s undergraduate degrees, the Master of Arts in Biblical Ministry will equip graduate students for effective ministry rooted in Scripture.

“For over 79 years, OCC has taught Bible and ministry,” says President Matt Proctor, “and now we’ll teach it at the graduate level. Dr. Shane J. Wood will be the dean of our graduate studies, so whether you’re a Bible college graduate or a church leader with no formal biblical education, if you’ve ever wanted to learn more, we’ll help you grow deeper.”

The Master of Arts in Biblical Ministry is accredited regionally and nationally and includes 36-hour concentrations in biblical studies, spiritual formation, and strategic leadership. A 30-hour biblical ministries pathway is also available.

“The health of our leaders impacts the health of our churches,” says Dr. Wood, “so OCC’s master’s program comes alongside you with effective ministry strategies and deep, biblical training. At its heart, this program is a transformational education community.”
