Remembering President Beckman

On Thursday, March 6, 2014, the flag on the Colorado Christian University campus flew at half-staff to commemorate the life, death, and coronation of our dear friend Dr. David Beckman, who went home to heaven that morning. The University has established this website to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Beckman.

Three-time president of the University, David Beckman lived a great life and had thousands of friends, including so many members of the CCU community. He was strong, dedicated, humble, a man of great personal charm. He set the standard for integrity in higher education. He never wavered in following Jesus.
