Colorado Christian University recognizes the need to create an environment that fosters evangelism, discipleship, and fellowship modeled after Christ's example. The purpose of CCU2theWorld is to create this environment both at home and abroad. At CCU, students have the opportunity to create and design a mission trip wherever they want to go. Working with CCU staff, students learn how to build partnerships with existing ministries in the area and then co-lead the trip with a staff or faculty member.
Each international trip encompasses an element of witnessing, so if students are teaching basketball camps in Costa Rica or working with a local church in Scotland, they’re also taking time to witness and communicate the good news of Christ to those who haven’t heard. As James writes, we show our faith by our deeds. At CCU, students are engaged and passionate about doing exactly that.
During the fifteen years, we've sent over 200 short-term missionary teams throughout the United States and all over the world to more than 50 countries. The teams serve others who are in need and, in doing so, find opportunities to share God's love.
