CCU students strive to be better leaders. They live up to a higher standard. They get outside their comfort zones and push their limits. They don’t just talk about service and ministry...they actually do it. None of our ministries are staff or faculty-led; students initiate and coordinate every single ministry opportunity that originates on campus. Here are just some of the ways that CCU students are making a difference in the local community.
All Things is a ministry that encourages the patients at Children’s Hospital Colorado that they “can do all things through Christ,” as described in Philippians 4:13. We do crafts and activities with patients, pass out gifts during holidays, and throw parties during special holidays. Spreading the love and joy of Christ through our actions and interactions with each patient at the hospital, we hope that we can brighten the kids’ days and encourage them greatly.
Freedom Ministry partners with Denver Area Youth for Christ in reaching at-risk youth, in and out of detention centers. Freedom works with the local church and like-minded partners in developing lifelong followers of Jesus Christ by building relationships with youth in one-on-one and group settings.
Sojourners is a CCU ministry that reaches out to the poor and homeless in the inner city Denver area. Students walk the streets of Denver to seek out those in need, and initiate conversation and fellowship with those they meet. In an effort to meet physical needs as well as spiritual, they provide food, water, and clothing to the individuals they meet. Sojourners’ intention is to share the love of Jesus Christ with all they meet by living out lives of service and selflessness, sharing in community with those in need.
Westside Ministry is an inner-city children's ministry which facilitates both Whiz Kids and Street Church. For the past seventeen years, WSM has facilitated Bible clubs, tutoring, mentoring, music camp, and summer opportunities for at-risk children. Students within Westside Ministry build relationships and live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.
