Our Story

Ozark Christian Academy (OCA) was founded in 1973 by Rev. D. C. Branham as the second phase of Ozark Christian Schools of Neosho (OCS), comprising also of Ozark Bible Institute and College (OBI), founded in 1969. OCA started in the classrooms of the Bible Holiness Assembly of God until the nearly 30,000 sq. ft. educational wing of the Kesler Memorial Complex was completed in 1976. OBI joined OCA on the new campus in 1984 when the gymnasium, cafeteria, library and offices were built. A third wing was added in 2002 providing additional classroom and office space for Ozark Christian Missions (OCM), an affiliated ministry of OBI. Now, construction is underway for a new 900+ seat sanctuary on our campus to meet the needs of our growing church and school.
