Higher Education in Morrow County
Hesper Mount Seminary (Society of Friends, 1843-1881) was situated near the Quaker settlement in Peru Township. Iberia College (Free Presbyterian, 1854-1867) and Ohio Central College (United Presbyterian, 1867-1875; Christian and nonsectarian, 1875-1887) were both located in Iberia, Washington Township. After 122 years, higher education was revived in Morrow County with the founding of Ohio Central Bible College (Christian and independent) at Iberia in July 2009.

GREETINGS FROM OHIO CENTRAL PRESIDENT MARK W. PHILLIPS OF MT. GILEAD
"It would be great to have you enroll as a student at Ohio Central
Bible College! We were established in July 2009. OCBC is Christian,
independent and nondenominational. We are conservative and in the
evangelical tradition. Our curriculum is therefore Christ-centered (see
The Gospel According to Saint John 14:6; KJV). Individuals with a
high school diploma or GED are welcome to enroll. All of our faculty
at OCBC have a master's degree or higher and we are a commuter
campus without a residency requirement. Our students love the
enjoyment of learning and having fellowship with other Christians in
class. Hope to see you at OCBC. All are welcome!" President Phillips
