How exciting it is to hear a new generation of musicians sing and develop their voice of praise and worship. If you are a student in the 4th through 7th grade we are so glad you have joined us on this great adventure.

Nothing goes together better than children and music!

It is exciting to hear a new generation of musicians sing and develop a voice of praise and worship. The OBCC rehearses at the Baptist Building in Oklahoma City, and they sing across the state of Oklahoma, bringing a fresh and beautiful voice as they worship in our churches and other venues.

I have 11 siblings, 3 of whom have graduated from OBCC and one who is currently in the choir. I was homeschooled and have recently graduated from college with a B.S. in Speech Language Pathology. I am fluent in ASL. I use that to help communicate with young children and those who are in the deaf community, as well as those who don’t have spoken language. This will be my first year officially helping with OBCC but I have been a helper for the last 2 years.
