Life Groups

Each week, OCC students come together for mentoring groups and life groups. Led by Ministry Center Director Kevin Greer, these small groups are facilitated by OCC staff, faculty, and upperclassmen. Weekly meetings offer students Christian accountability, community, friendship, and fun.
