At graduation our graduates share their fondest memories of their time as a student and we wanted to share a few of those with you. Whether on campus, online or both, these students answered God's call to pursue education for ministry at Clear Creek. Some will continue their education while others are entering full-time ministry. We ask you to pray over them as they continue to follow God in ministry.
Dear Kentucky Baptists,
When I was barely a teenager, my parents divorced and my mother, brother, and I moved from Chicago to Kentucky. My dad was still living in Chicago and wasn't really a part of our lives. My mom found out about this place called Oneida Baptist Institute and sent my brother there. After my brother didn't make it at OBI, my mom then sent me.
