Oro Bible College – OBC

An AC theological institute founded in 1971, OBC’s four-year degree program prepares students for effective ministry and leadership. Internships and service projects help deepen a commitment to the Great Commission:

  • Students in the community – teaching, feeding and tutoring kids
  • Upper class students in local churches – assisting in worship, Sunday school, preaching, counseling, and pastoral aid

The Field Education program focuses on evangelism, church planting, and missions, with each student given the skills to plant a church. There have been more than 200 graduates of OBC since its inception.
