• CCU President Bill Armstrong

    Greetings from the President

    Welcome to Colorado Christian University's website. As you browse these pages we hope you will see how we are going about fulfilling our mission to cultivate knowledge and love of God in a Christ-centered community of learners and scholars, with an enduring commitment to the integration of exemplary academics, spiritual formation, and engagement with the world. Colorado Christian University is very different from the typical American university. We hold tightly to traditional values and high academic standards. We strive to impact our culture in support of traditional family values, sanctity of life, compassion for the poor, biblical view of human nature, limited government, personal freedom, and other such causes that preserve and promote high moral and ethical standards.

     Not only does a CCU education prepare students for positions of significant leadership in the church, business, education, government, and many other strategic disciplines, it also gives students significant opportunities to serve our Lord while they are at CCU, helping them develop a lifetime habit of service to God's Kingdom.

    In the classroom students are learning to think for themselves, to ponder and interact with today's ideas and theories. They are learning how biblical principles can make an impact now. They are becoming seekers and messengers of truth. Professors are challenging students to integrate their faith into their chosen discipline, while helping them gain knowledge and develop skills that will prepare them to be successful in their careers.

    Outside the classroom students are learning to trust the Bible, live holy lives, and be evangelists – sharing the love of Christ on campus, in the local community, and around the world. CCU has a long history of active service through student-led mission trips and ministries that touch the lives of others and make a significant impact for Christ. Students are fed and encouraged through regular chapel services, opportunities to be involved in Bible studies and discipleship groups, and through mentoring relationships with dedicated faculty and staff members.

    We believe this unique combination of classroom learning, active service, and spiritual formation creates a transformational education that produces graduates who think critically and creatively, lead with high ethical and professional standards, embody the character and compassion of Jesus Christ, and who thereby are prepared to impact the world.
