CCU's Symposium 2018

Please join us for the sixth annual Symposium where we will explore what it means to be human in a post-Christian age.

What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
– Psalm 8:4 (ESV)

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 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.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Os Guinness
