The Opened Bible Academy (OBA) is a non-profit organization that offers tuition-free, exceptional biblical and theological training to anyone whom God has given the desire to learn. Over the past five years, God has done amazing things in the life of OBA. From its inception, we have experienced incredible growth and success in living out our mission of Transforming Hearts and Changing Lives through the power of God’s Word. 


OBA is a ministry that provides seminary-trained instructors to: 

  • Prepare Disciples to share the Gospel with a higher degree of confidence. 

  • Prepare Students who want to ready themselves for Bible College or formal Seminary training. 

  • Prepare Staff & Teachers at local churches to better support their church, city, and world ministries through sound biblical instruction. 

With campus locations across the Greater Houston Area, Dallas and Kansas City people are being empowered and equipped as they grow in their knowledge of God’s Love. 


To date:

  • 93 students have completed the two-and-a-half-year program.

  • 235 more are currently enrolled.

  • The OBA has 50 instructors, classroom community leaders, and support staff that volunteer to accomplish this mission.

As a result, we are excited to invite you to share in our Gala Dinner, themed “Celebrating the Power of the Transformative Word.” This festive occasion will be a time for us to rejoice over God’s grace and favor that has been shown to this ministry, even as we look toward the future and the greater works that are still in store.
