Dean: Dr. J. Daniel "Danny" Hays

In 2000, Chesley and Elizabeth Pruet of El Dorado, Arkansas, endowed the new School of Christian Studies. Out of gratitude for the Pruet’s generosity, the Ouachita Board of Trustees voted to name the new school the Pruet School of Christian Studies. “The Pruets are selfless people,” said President Westmoreland in his announcement of the gift, “but their generosity is legendary.”

The OBU School of Christian Studies is to prepare students to plant and build up the Church--to reach people for Christ and to train them as disciples, both in the United States and across the world. We prepare students to follow God's calling for them by growing their relationship with Christ and His Word.
