Capital Campaign

For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
Colossians 1:16-17 (ESV)

Campaign for CCU — Becoming a Great University

Great buildings don't make great universities, but a great university requires great buildings.

In October 2012, Colorado Christian University launched a capital campaign to redevelop CCU's main campus in Lakewood, and to support tremendous growth in student enrollment. At that time, more than 1,000 traditional undergraduate students were enrolled at the Lakewood campus, which was originally designed to accommodate 600 students.

Eight years into our capital campaign, the University has expanded its campus to 34 acres with the acquisition of adjacent land. Leprino Hall provided much-needed academic space when it opened in 2014. Student housing was expanded by more than 600 beds with the opening of Yetter Hall in 2015 and Rockmont Hall in 2019. In 2017, the Anschutz Student Center was opened to students — which added 60,000 square feet of dining, hangout, and office space to campus. Today more than 1,400 undergraduate students are enrolled in our College of Undergraduate Studies, continuing a 10-year trend of record enrollment.

Fundraising has been completed for the Armstrong Center. The facility will serve as the backbone of the academic quad; house the Lee Strobel Center for Evangelism and Applied Apologetics, the Clifford Fowler Library, and the University's first dedicated chapel space; and allow the School of Music to return to the heart of campus. Future plans also include the construction of a second dedicated academic building.

We thank God for His extraordinary blessings and we continue to seek His guidance as we move forward. Please pray for wisdom and God's favor as we forge ahead with construction plans and the continued growth of enrollment. Pray for our CCU students, faculty, and staff as they fulfill God's purpose in their lives.

And please consider giving to Colorado Christian University to help us advance. It is an outstanding opportunity, not just to educate students, but to build the Church, change our culture, and impact the world for Christ. God is at work at CCU — changing lives and making His grace and truth a reality in the world. Without faithful supporters, we could not do it.
