Mosaic Lunches


Mosaic Lunches are a chance for OCC students, faculty, and staff to discuss difficult topics in the nation and the church. Most of the topics pertain to diversity, culture, and politics. Join us each month in the OCC Banquet Hall (upper caf) from 12:15-1:30 p.m.


Fall events coming soon!


OCC's Multicultural Affairs Department seeks to cultivate a multiethnic, multicultural campus and constituency by working across college departments to intentionally recruit and retain ethnic minority students and to increase campus and classroom cultural inclusivity.

The Ozark community is committed to honoring and broadening the ethnic diversity of our community and to treating every person with respect and love. We want every student to feel at home at OCC, and we want to equip our students to be culturally agile in any context. Ozark equips students to serve in a diverse world. As we train men and women for Christian service, we seek to raise them up as leaders who encourage cultural and ethnic diversity for the sake of the gospel. 

Matthew McBirth

Multicultural Affairs Department Director

Matthew McBirth is a certified administrator of the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), a survey that assesses an individual's or group's capacity to engage culture well. As our communities grow in cultural diversity, the church must be able to become "all things to all people" for the sake of the gospel (1 Cor 9:19-23).

Matthew will help your church grow in cultural engagement and effectiveness when he administers the IDI, reviews the results, and offers practical advice. Contact Matthew below for more information on using the Intercultural Development Inventory in your ministry.
