Overseas Ministries Study Center
For over 100 years, the Overseas Ministries Study Center has served as a hub of hospitality, research and ministry for Missions Studies and World Christianity. From our early years on the Jersey shore welcoming North American missionaries on furlough to our expanded role as a research center for global church leaders and scholars in New Haven, OMSC has built a powerful legacy dedicated to spiritual rest and intellectual renewal for God’s mission.
On July 9, 2022, we celebrated our centenary year with an evening gala and inaugural Gerald H. Anderson lecture, presented by Dr. Dana Robert. The day also served as an important marker of OMSC’s new season embedded within Princeton Theologcal Seminary.
Today, OMSC seeks to continue this legacy and innovate for the future to engage in God’s mission by amplifying the voices of the World Christian movement.
We invite you to celebrate and reflect with us through the articles, images, and videos presented here.
