Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Acquired Canterbury Episcopal School in DeSoto, Texas

DALLAS, July 31, 2019 – Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship (OCBF) has purchased the 37-acre campus of Canterbury Episcopal School in DeSoto Texas. Canterbury now joins OCBF’s Fellowship Christian Academy in Dallas Texas in offering a premier collegiate education with a biblical worldview at both the Dallas and DeSoto campuses.

The acquisition of Canterbury fulfills the vision of Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor of OCBF, of having a high school for middle school graduates of Fellowship Christian Academy. Between both campuses, students can begin their education as early as 18 months through the 12th grade.

According to Dr. Evans, “Our goal is to offer a superior collegiate education guided by a Kingdom agenda that recognizes God’s comprehensive rule in society operates through the individual, family, church and government. We teach our students to excel academically while applying a biblical worldview that impacts them and their relationships with their families, churches and government.”

Each school will maintain separate operations by location, but will now be identified by their new names: Canterbury Collegiate Academy and Fellowship Collegiate Academy under the supporting structure of Kingdom Collegiate Academies (KCA). Dr. Larry Mercer, executive administrator of KCA, states “Both schools with their longstanding and impressive history of academic excellence and achievement will bring together their unique and shared academic strengths, expertise and resources, which will undoubtedly establish both as the premier provider of private school collegiate education.”

In addition to both schools, Kingdom Collegiate Academies—through strategic community partnerships—will provide parents added educational and sports options through the following establishments: Kingdom Collegiate Academy Online, Kingdom Early College Academy, Kingdom Home School Academy and Kingdom Sports Academy.
