William L. ("Bill") Armstrong, president of Colorado Christian University, passed away on Tuesday, July 5, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 79.
Bill Armstrong served as president of CCU from 2006 to 2016. He displayed an uncommon vision for our times by adopting the University’s Strategic Objectives at the beginning of his presidency, and went on to lead the University during a period of unprecedented growth. He called his work at CCU "the most significant, energizing, and rewarding work I have ever undertaken."
But beyond his achievements, Bill's true legacy was his focus on Jesus and his enthusiasm for Colorado Christian University and all who are a part of it. The CCU community mourns his passing. We will miss his leadership, his guidance, his vision, and his friendship. But we also celebrate his life, his love of Jesus, and the impact he made on our University.
Colorado Christian University has established this website to honor the life of our beloved president. We invite friends of President Armstrong to read the many messages and memories shared by those who were impacted by him.
