The Great Commission
Our mission statement and motto at Oakland City University mirror The Great Commission in many ways:
“Oakland City University is a Christian Faith-based learning community dedicated to the enhancement of intellectual, spiritual, physical and social development for positive leadership.”
“Enter To Learn…Go Forth To Serve”
Just as Jesus taught the disciples by His example to prepare them for life after His ascension, OCU uses many avenues to train our students to “Go into the world and preach the gospel” no matter what their career choice might be.
There is only one way to ensure that more students will be able to tell their stories of how coming to OCU changed their lives. Your gift to Oakland City University changes lives. At this time in history, the world is desperate for leadership our graduates can provide. They can and will “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Please be a part of their story by giving your best gift today. Invest in the future and the return on your investment might be your child or grandchild Entering To Learn and Going Forth To Serve.
