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 and their families through crafts, activities, and parties to brighten their day and provide them with a change of pace from hospital life.
Bella Joy is an anti-sex trafficking ministry that volunteers locally with safe homes and other faith-based organizations to support victims rescued from trafficking. This support comes in the form of fundraising, raising awareness, and creating opportunities to work with survivors. It is a place where passion becomes action.
Cross Nations is a refugee ministry that seeks to welcome the foreigner among us. We share the love of Christ with refugees by spending time with them and helping them integrate into American culture.
We are CCU’s pro-life ministry. Our primary focus is to encourage and love women in crisis pregnancy situations by volunteering with pregnancy centers. Our secondary focus is to educate students on campus about what it means to be “pro-life”.
Sojourners (Sojos) is an evangelical street mission to the Denver area, reaching the homeless population by providing food and developing friendships with the vision to spread the Gospel and make disciples.
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.
Young Hearts is a ministry to nursing homes and senior living centers that simply loves on the residents there. We conduct a Bible study with them, build relationships with them, and, most importantly, show Christ’s love to them.
