Oxford Centre for Mission Studies

OCMS nurtures relevant and engaged research for leaders on the cutting edge of Christian ministry and mission globally. We offer an environment that is culturally sensitive and globally informed where Christian leaders from around the world can engage in groundbreaking scholarship enabling them to better understand the nature of the issues they face in their contexts and ministry.

Because of the research, those in need around the world receive better advocacy, development, practical support and preaching from their churches and the lives of people from some of the most challenging contexts in the world are changed. This PhD programme offers an attractive and affordable alternative for students from the non-western world and our approach allows scholars to remain active in their context throughout their studies ensuring that their research is culturally relevant and situationally informed.
