Over the 30 days leading up to President Sweeting's Inauguration, the CCU community gathered each day for a time of intentional prayer. The prayers focused on adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication, with the specific intention of thanking God for his continued blessings and favor on CCU. A prayer card with daily guides was provided for the 30 days of prayer.
By invitation only
All full-time faculty and staff of Colorado Christian University were invited to attend a special breakfast to honor President Sweeting.
Students in the College of Undergraduate Studies, CCU faculty and staff, and select guests were invited to attend a special inaugural forum chapel service. President Sweeting selected a distinguished panel of speakers, including Dr. Barry Corey (President of Biola University), Dr. David S. Dockery (President of Trinity International University), and Dr. Philip G. Ryken (President of Wheaton College) to present during the forum.
A special luncheon for guests of Dr. and Mrs. Sweeting followed the Inaugural Forum
The Inaugural Service was preceded by the academic procession of delegates. Dr. Donald W. Sweeting was formally invested as the President of Colorado Christian University. Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. (President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) delivered the keynote address.
Immediately following the Inaugural Service, a bistro-style reception with hors-d’oeuvres was offered for special guests in the Anschutz Student Center.
