Oak Hills Christian College, a small, private institution located in Northern Minnesota, is a division of the Oak Hills Fellowship, and has offered student living since it was founded in 1946. Though officially a Protestant and evangelical college, the school takes a non-denominational approach to instructing students in Biblical Studies. According to the school's mission statement, "Oak Hills Christian College provides biblically-centered higher education, which contributes to growth toward Christlikeness and prepares students for effective service in their homes, careers, churches and communities." Today, the college invites nearly 200 students each year to enroll in its various biblical studies programs and reside in student housing throughout the community.
The institution is located between the Upper and Lower Marquette Lakes where college apartments are available. The college's hometown of Bemidji, Minnesota hosts about 13,400 residents as well as a thriving arts scene that is apparent in the the small shops and forms of public art that line its streets. Off campus housing places students south of the city's downtown district, within walking distance of the two Marquette Lakes, and a short trip from Lake Carr, Lake Plantagenet and Lake Irving.
Because OHCC strongly emphasizes biblical education, a major in Biblical Studies is a required part of student living for all degree candidates in four-year bachelor programs. Those who elect to earn a second major may enroll in Bachelor of Arts programs in Camp Ministry, Children's Ministry, Youth Ministry, Pastoral Ministry or Intercultural Studies, as well as Bachelor of Science Programs in Applied Psychology or Small Business Administration. One-year certificate, and two-year associate degree programs are also available.
