Carroll & Alma Tarkington Scholarship

Carroll Tarkington was one of the founders of Overseas Christian Servicemen’s Centers (OCSC), Cadence International now, dating back to 1954. He and his wife Alma served as ministry leaders in the center in the Philippines and opened new centers in Okinawa and Spain. After 20 years on the mission field with OCSC the Tarkington’s spearheaded a new church plant in 1976 in Spring Lake, NC called Liberty Baptist Church, with a focus on military families from Ft. Bragg. During their 20 years of ministry at Liberty, Pastor Tarkington became affiliated with Carolina College of Biblical Studies (CCBS) in the nearby Fayetteville area. He taught there as one of their adjunct faculty for 15 years and was instrumental in growing the College. Their love for teaching the truth of the Word will continue through the Carroll and Alma Tarkington Scholarship Fund.
