Ozark Christian Collect Holds Annual Preaching-Teaching Convention, February 20 to 22

Nationally known speakers and hundreds of alumni and friends will converge on the campus of OCC.

(Joplin, MO)Ozark Christian College (OCC) will host its annual Preaching-Teaching Convention from Monday, February 20 through Wednesday, February 22, 2023. This year’s theme, “Unsung Heroes,” features speakers Rick Atchley, Tom Ellsworth, Scott Nickell, Beth DeFazio, Nikomas Perez, and Adam Jones.

The six main sessions of the convention will explore the unsung heroes and ministries of the Bible. “Some heroes go unnoticed,” says OCC president Matt Proctor, “But God loves to use passed-over people for pivotal purposes. It’s often the work done in hidden places that most reveals God’s glory.”

The convention begins on Monday evening with the college’s annual President’s Banquet, with special guest Rick Rusaw, president of Spire Network in Longmont, Colorado. The first main session will be held Tuesday morning, and the convention will include afternoon workshop, children’s programming, and more.

A complete list of convention events, registration information, and downloadable promotional materials can be found here. The program book for the week can be read and downloaded here. The community is invited to attend.

The Preaching-Teaching Convention is held each February on OCC’s campus. For more about the Preaching-Teaching Convention, or for more on OCC, contact Amy Storms, Marketing and Communications Director, at 417.626.1227 or storms.amy@occ.edu.
