The world is coming to London! Globalisation affects all of us, of course, no matter where we live, but in London the world presses in around us. Here at Oak Hill, we don’t limit our horizons to the UK alone, but are committed to providing people who are Christ’s ‘best possible gift’ across the globe.
Oak Hill intentionally prepares people for cross-cultural ministry at home and abroad. More than 40 Oak Hill alumni are serving across six continents in more than twenty different countries. Many more are sharing the gospel across cultures in UK towns and cities.
Students from a great variety of cultural backgrounds study at Oak Hill, and we’d love to see this continue to increase. At any one time, most of the world’s continents are represented in our college community.
Oak Hill College takes seriously the missional hermeneutic; that the Bible can’t be fully understood and applied without taking into account its inherently Great Commission DNA. That’s why all our courses are shot through with a focus on mission. This inter-disciplinary approach ensures that global relevance is important in every class, not just the missions courses.
This is London, where the nations have come. The greater part of the city’s population, not to mention its church congregations on Sundays, is comprised of people from other nations, living and working in our great city. Oak Hill intentionally prepares gospel workers who are excited to embrace this increasing diversity, and minister to people within it.
