From The President

Thank you for your interest in supporting the CCCU! We invite you to join us as we work to promote and protect Christian higher education through our work in public advocacy, experiential education, and professional development. 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 gives us a foundation: "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."

Below, you will find more information about our work on Capitol Hill, our efforts in leadership and professional development for staff and faculty, and our off-campus study programs. By investing in the CCCU, you invest in the future of our 180+ institutions, in the next generation of Christian thought leaders, and in building God’s kingdom throughout the world. Thank you!

Warmly, Shirley

Monthly Prayer Focus

As we begin a new year, we first want to thank all those who made 2019 year end gifts. We were overwhelmed with the positive response to our Christmas letter which included a request for support. You make our work possible; thank you! January will be a busy month as we look forward to our winter board meeting and annual Presidents Conference. We will host leaders from all over the country and around the world for this special event. We look forward to gathering almost two-hundred people deeply committed to Christian higher education. Please pray that the conference encourages our presidents to continue their good work on their respective campuses. And, as always, we ask that you continue to pray for us and our work here at the CCCU.

Advance Magazine

"You [Christian colleges] have what everybody else is desperate to have: a way of talking about and educating the human person in a way that integrates faith, emotion, and intellect. You have a recipe to nurture human beings who have a devoted heart, a courageous mind, and a purposeful soul. Almost no other set of institutions in American society has that, and everyone wants it."

-David Brooks

Thank you for your interest in supporting the future of Christian higher education. We are working to advance faith and intellect for the common good, and we could not accomplish this without the generosity of our donors. If you have questions about any of the information here, or have interest in stock, IRA, or other non-cash gifts, please contact me. It is always a pleasure to be in touch with CCCU supporters!
