Young Life

Young Life logo

Colorado Christian University is a ministry partner of Young Life. Young Life is a Christian ministry that reaches out to middle school and high school kids in all 50 of the United States as well as more than 90 countries around the world. 

Young Life and CCU

Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with young adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. Kids' lives are dramatically influenced when caring people come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust, and consistency.

Did you know that CCU offers a Minor in Young Life Leadership? Students in the Young Life Leadership minor at Colorado Christian University take courses in discipleship, cross-cultural ministry, and ministry leadership. This specialized program offered in conjunction with Young Life was the first of its kind in the country. Many CCU students already participate in the Young Life ministry, so they can take what they are learning in class and immediately apply it where they are serving. CCU faculty and members of the Young Life organization teach the courses. Learn more here!
