History

EBC overlooks West Eugene

The school was founded by Fred Hornshuh in 1925.[3] 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.[4]

In 1974, the school moved to its current campus site at 2155 Bailey Hill Road, overlooking west Eugene. The hilltop location also displays a seventy-foot tall cross relocated from Skinner Butte on June 24, 1997.[5]

In 2009, the school joined the Pacific Rim Christian College Consortium, a group of three other colleges in Honolulu,[6] Myanmar and Japan founded by alumnus Wayne Cordeiro. Dr. Cordeiro was also appointed to be the chancellor.[7]
