The October 10 seminar "An Introduction to the New Testament" (Moore) has been postponed until 2021. This is because of concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, please read about the life of Christ in the four Gospels. Thank you.

Our hope is in the Lord Jesus, because 
"He who has the Son has life" (I John 5:12).

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. OCBC was created for the people of Morrow County and the Columbus region. All are welcome to attend 
Ohio Central Bible College. 


   "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
