New Hope Christian College
New Hope Christian College, formerly known as Eugene Bible College, is a private, four-year Bible college located on a 36-acre campus in Eugene, Oregon, United States.
The school was founded by Fred Hornshuh in 1925. It was part of the Open Bible Churches denomination which originated from two revival movements: the Bible Standard Conference, founded in Eugene in 1919, and the Open Bible Evangelistic Association, founded in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1932. In 1974, the school moved to its current campus site at 2155 Bailey Hill Road, overlooking west Eugene. The hilltop location displays a 70-foot-tall (21 m) cross relocated from Skinner Butte on June 24, 1997. In 2009, the school joined the Pacific Rim Christian College Consortium, a group of three other colleges in Honolulu, Myanmar and Japan founded by alumnus Wayne Cordeiro. Cordeiro was appointed chancellor when NHCC, then still Eugene Bible College, joined the consortium. The name was changed from Eugene Bible College to New Hope Christian College in June, 2010
The mission of the Creative Arts program is to equip graduates with the tools and experience needed to oversee a thriving worship and creative arts ministry within the local church or para-church ministry while also pursuing the development and refinement of their ï¿½platform of excellence.ï¿½
