Your prayerful and financial support of Ohio Christian University Strategic Development Team makes it possible for OCU to offer students an education that develops the whole person: intellectually, professionally, and spiritually.

The role of the Ohio Christian University Office of Strategic Development is to move forward the plans, goals, purposes and responsibilities of the University, Alumni, and student body. With the support of our donor partners, we can raise up, encourage, and educate future leaders, teachers, ministers, workers in a variety of disciplines and builders for His Kingdom.

We are constantly upgrading, improving, and working to maintain excellence in education. To provide the best atmosphere for learning, growing, and succeeding, we must invest. To be able to attract and provide for students, we must provide the most up to date curriculums, offer new programs and constantly improve our facilities. There has never been a time in history where Christian education has been more necessary and more essential for its ability to impact and counterbalance the prevailing culture.

Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Our students are a treasure and our heart rests with them. Will you join us in building His Kingdom? Will you prayerfully consider how your gift of treasure can have an eternal impact? Your gifts change lives. Your gifts fund scholarships, athletics, ministry, mission and much more. Will you join us in mission? Will you join us in preparing students for a lifetime of service, leadership, and discipleship.
