Internationally the Overseas Council Network supports Christian leadership development at 200 colleges in 70 countries around the world.

  • Our Goal

    Our goal is to help the growing church in the developing world to have the leaders, pastors and church planters that it needs. By partnering with leading Bible colleges we can contribute directly to the health and mission of the local church.

  • OUR PARTNER COLLEGES

    We support 25 bible colleges and programs in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. You can see below where our partner colleges are and all those being supported in the OC Network.
