Mid America Christian University

Mid-America Christian University (MACU) is a private, Christian liberal arts college that’s experiencing unprecedented growth. In the last four years alone, MACU has grown from 909 students to over 2,400! The reason for this rapid growth is simple: Mid-America offers life-transforming associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s programs that will expand your employment and ministry opportunities.

Mid-America was established originally as South Texas Bible Institute (STBI), Houston, Texas, September 14, 1953, by Dr. Max R. Gaulke. In 1983, without sufficient room for expansion at the Houston location, it was determined that the college should be relocated to Oklahoma City. May 9, 1984, ground was broken for the new campus, and the new campus dedication occurred September 5-8, 1985. In recognition of the relocation, the college was renamed: Mid-America Bible College.
