Having ­­begun in 1922 as the Houses of Fellowship in Ventnor, New Jersey, we changed our name to Overseas Ministries Study Center in 1967 and moved to New Haven in 1987. To date, our alumni include more than 25,000 missionaries, church leaders, mission agency executives, research scholars, and artists and their families from more than 100 countries! As we prepare to celebrate OMSC’s Centenary in 2022, we are entering into a new and exciting covenant relationship with Princeton Theological Seminary, where our ministry will be embedded on their beautiful campus, beginning with the 2020–2021 academic year.
