From its modest beginning with two students and one teacher in a storefront classroom, Colorado Christian University has developed into the premier interdenominational Christian university in the region, reaching across Colorado and around the world. The story of CCU begins with ordinary people who were gifted by God with an irrepressible vision to provide Christ-centered education in the Rocky Mountain region.
This book describes the founding of CCU’s heritage schools, Denver Bible Institute, Western Bible Institute, and Colorado Baptist Junior College. It is the story of leaders’ passions and purposes, institutional successes and pressures, and students who have made a difference in this world. But more than that, it is the story of God’s faithful provision in prospering the vision.
CCU’s Mission: Colorado Christian University cultivates 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.
