Opportunities to Serve

Opportunities to serve

OC provides students with constant opportunities for service - on and around campus, and in countries around the world!

Opportunities in the area

OC’s clubs and organizations do more than play intramurals and perform at Spring Sing. OC’s social service clubs encourage members to reach out and help others each semester. Here are some recent projects: 

  • Worked with Luther Church of Christ on an outreach project to the Luther community
  • Volunteered at Feed the Children
  • Oklahoma City Adopt-a-Highway program
  • Sponsored children through Compassion International
  • Sang every Wednesday night at the Highland Ridge Nursing Home
  • Volunteered at the Service Center in Luther, Oklahoma
  • Cleaned up an elderly couples’ house in Guthrie

Below is a powerful testimony from alumna Jennifer Simonds after a tornado hit the elementary school where she taught. Jennifer talks about her experience and how her alma mater help in the aftermath of the deadly storm. 

Opportunities around the world

More than 1,100 students (60 percent), faculty, and staff members participate in around 50 service and ministry opportunities each year. Some of the countries served include Australia, Austria, China, Croatia, Germany, Ghana, Honduras, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, Rwanda, Switzerland, and the United States.

OC's Center for Global Missions coordinates many of these trips and activities. Follow the Center on Facebook to learn more about how you can get involved.
