Oklahoma Christian University

Combining spiritual values, academic excellence, and a caring family atmosphere, Oklahoma Christian University has shaped Christian leaders since 1950. “We are a Kingdom university. We are a place where students can develop a deeper relationship with Christ and Christian values are shared,” says Dr. Ken Jones, President of OC. 

Growing Academic and Spiritual Leaders

Along with an outstanding education, OC offers a close-knit community. With just over 2,000 students, it’s a place where teachers know their students by name and pray for them daily. “You aren’t just a number,” says Melinda Brookshire, whose son is a freshman at OC this year. 

Many of OC’s academic programs have a well-deserved reputation for excellence. The education and nursing schools have a near 100% job placement rate, and the gaming and animation program is one of the top in the nation.

OC’s mission statement reflects the Christian values that shape its ministry: “As a community of surrendered followers of Jesus and with a commitment to expand His kingdom, Oklahoma Christian University educates, mentors and inspires learners to fulfill their God-given potential.”

Making a Difference 

“We are very driven to make an impact on the community and the world,” adds Dr. Jones. Students have many opportunities for service, from volunteering in the community to group outreaches with social service clubs.

Local residents are always welcome to enjoy OC’s many performances, art exhibits, and athletic events. The campus includes a popular walking trail, and gym memberships are open to the public. OC offers professional development classes and programs designed for working adults to complete their degrees.

High school students can explore OC during “Eagle for a Day” events or individual visits. OC is a place where students can write their own story and ultimately find God’s purpose for their lives.

Oklahoma Christian University is located at 2501 E. Memorial Road, Edmond. Learn more at oc.edu.
