Student outside at Oak Hill College

Why Oak Hill?

At Oak Hill we are convinced that theological training needs to match the broad and deep demands of gospel ministry.

We shouldn’t have to choose between leaders who love the Lord and leaders who love the lost. Between leaders who know the Scriptures deeply and leaders who get what makes people tick. We shouldn’t have to choose between excellent communicators and sacrificial servants. Between theological precision and generous hospitality.

Oak Hill helped me connect the dots between the theology of our trinitarian God and the people in front of me. It encouraged me to communicate the unchanging message in language they can understand.”
