Future Alumni Spotlight

Kimberly Britt

Degree:  Master of Arts in Counseling
Hometown: Littleton, Colorado

After Hurricane Katrina destroyed my hometown on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I began working as a news anchor at a local TV station. Most of the reporting I did was in relation to the storm and the recovery process. There was an overwhelming need among all the Gulf Coast residents, and I wanted to do more to help them than just stick a camera in their faces. It took several years of asking God how He wanted to use me before I decided to leave my film and television background and pursue counseling.
The cohort system at CCU has been such a blessing in my life, and has not only provided academic support, but also comfort and help in my personal and spiritual life as well.

Ministry Spotlight

David Mporampora

CCU Class of 1993
Christ Aid International 

"Serving Christ by aiding impoverished children and elderly women in Uganda."

David Mporampora is a 1993 graduate of Colorado Christian University and is serving in Uganda as a full-time missionary. In 1995, David incorporated, founded, and registered ChristAid as a non-profit outreach and soon after it received its accreditation from the Federal government. This ministry is committed to serving Christ by helping impoverished children and elderly women in Uganda. What began as a simple ministry has exploded into a powerful, life-saving outreach to the poor of Uganda. Lives are being transformed through health care, education and the message of the gospel through action. ChristAid has shipped forty-foot containers of medical and educational equipment to Uganda and genocide-stricken Rwanda. Please go to http://www.christaidintl.org/ to read more information about this wonderful ministry and for ways to help! We are so blessed to have David as part of the CCU family.
