I invite you to further that service by completing your college degree and exploring the opportunities available through Oklahoma Christian University.

I am confident we share many common values because of our service to our country and our fellow man, and know you will benefit from advancing your education among people who share those values.
It is our goal to enable all of our students to discover, enhance, and effectively apply the gifts and talents God has bestowed upon them. There is no place I know where you will be encouraged and mentored any better.
