Faculty and Scholars

OCA has identified that one of the key ways to lift the standards of a Bible college is to lift the competence of the faculty. We support masters and doctoral studies for faculty members which are done in their region or by distance education, so they can stay at the college. This greatly reduces the cost compared to training in the West. Furthermore, their studies are more relevant and suitable for the context of ministry in the developing world.
