Faith and Learning

Integrating faith and learning is critical at Colorado Christian University. We truly seek to honor and uphold Christ and his Word in all we do and teach. Therefore, my highest priority in teaching is not only to impart information and help students learn to study and think, but also to encourage students to personally consider God’s will for their lives. My specific aim is to help students develop a truly Christian worldview in which every aspect of their lives is lived from God's perspective and Christ is glorified in every word and deed, for only in this way can individual lives be transformed and culture changed.
