“At Colorado Christian University we don’t think it is the time in our personal life or our national life for us to sit around, a man can’t sit around, a women in these times can’t just sit around – and we’re teaching our students that God is calling us, to raise up, to help to raise up a generation of men and women to step into the shoes of William Wilberforce, and Patrick Henry, and Florence Nightingale, and Susan B Anthony, and Clarence Thomas and Ronald Reagan, and Rick Santorum and Carly Fiorina, and so many others,” said Bill Armstrong, President of CCU from 2006-2016.
“This is a time when we need our most outstanding men and women to be filled with dedication and energy to lead our country in a more wholesome, more thoughtful, and more godly direction to restore not only the Christian principles of our nation, but also the founding political and constitutional principles of the United States of America.”
CCU’s mission is to positively impact our culture and encourage “seekers of truth.” The annual Symposium program is an invitation for our students, faculty, and staff to gather in community and focus on current issues within our nation. This gathering facilitates a dialogue, exploring how Christians can respond to these issues with godly principles – with the intent of turning the tide away from discriminating against people of faith and toward honoring Christ.
All CCU students, faculty, and staff are intentionally educated on these issues and trained on how to respond with love, purpose, and impact. As a university, our education in the classroom emphasizes the Christian worldview and encourages students to translate that into a life of service and action – action that can change the world.
Please join us for the fourth annual Symposium where we will explore religious freedom, and why it is vital to preserving our health, unity, and purpose as God’s creation.
