St. Louis Christian College

From its inception, St. Louis Christian College has provided Bible-centered higher education to equip men and women as leaders who impact the world for Christ. The College was founded to meet the ministry needs of the St. Louis region. In June, 1956, three St. Louis ministers met to discuss a common concern: the need for leadership in the churches of the St. Louis region. Luther Perrine, Hubert Burris, and Vernon Newland reviewed the evangelistic decline of the previous quarter century and proposed to found a Bible college as a “center of evangelism” for the St. Louis region. Out of that proposal, St. Louis Christian College was established.
