Message from the President

President - Pastor Tom Vineyard

Please allow me just a few moments to tell you why you should choose Oklahoma Baptist College as the place where God would have you to train for the ministry. First and foremost, Oklahoma Baptist College is a school for preachers. For over three decades, young men have been training here in the disciplines of sermon preparation and preaching. Pastoral Theology, Missions, and Evangelism majors have the privilege of preparing and preaching three sermons a week, as well as participating in our monthly School of the Prophets. Graduates gain more than just a diploma. They go out equipped with sound doctrine and Biblical preaching experience.

We are also a Missions-hearted school. Having been missionaries in Africa for fifteen years, my wife and I can personally attest that the training we received at Oklahoma Baptist College prepared both of us not only to reach and train nationals, but also to educate our own children on the foreign field. Moreover, our foreign Missions trips with college staff provide students first-hand experience (as well as course credit) to make a difference while still in college. Finally, language studies in Spanish and French significantly complement an already thorough Missions program.

Because Oklahoma Baptist College is a local church ministry, students may gain practical training in several additional fields. Our Deaf Department offers courses for both Deaf and hearing students under state-certified (QAST) instructors. Our Education Department affords students the opportunity to student teach in a Christian school under teachers having as many as 25 years experience. With their respective Department heads having a combined 69 years of experience in local church ministries, our Bus Ministry, Youth, and Music departments are among the best in the country.

Come make a difference with us for such a time as this!
