Theology and Christian Ministry Studies

The Herschel H. Hobbs College of Theology and Ministry is the next step in the life of any student interested in pursuing a religious studies or ministry degree.

Our mission is to promote the intellectual and spiritual development of our theology students through rigorous engagement with the classical disciplines of religion, philosophy, and the applied disciplines of Christian ministry – all within the framework of OBU’s liberal arts curriculum.

 To achieve our purpose, the College of Theology and Ministry works in cooperation with our other academic departments, offering introductory courses in Biblical studies and philosophy in the general education program. We also provide majors in religion, philosophy and applied ministry leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree.

As a testament to our commitment in this program, Oklahoma Baptist University is the world’s leading college in the number of our alumni who serve as missionaries with the Southern Baptist International Mission Board.
