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. These trips are advised by one faculty or staff member, but they are all facilitated by students who propose the trip, interview applicants, prepare the trip, and see it to fruition.
During the last decade, we've sent over 175 short-term missionary teams throughout the United States and all over the world to more than 45 countries. The teams serve others who are in need and, in doing so, find opportunities to share God's love.
