Preaching Scholarships

Oklahoma Christian cares deeply about preparing the next generation of preachers. Through the generosity of donors that share a passion for equipping preachers, we are excited to be able to offer significant Preaching Scholarships. These Preaching Scholarships can be combined with and awarded on top of other OC financial awards such as other Academic and Bible scholarships.
