We do contextual ministry, meaning that our staff people adjust to the needs of the particular campus at which they serve. No two CCO ministries look exactly alike.
Because we partner with local churches, colleges and organizations, CCO staff members are fully present to students on a particular campus. We introduce college students to the Gospel message and equip them to be leaders on their campuses.
Here are some of the unique ways we minister to students:
We have campus staff who focus their outreach to student athletes, helping them to balance the challenges of academics, athletics, faith development and a healthy social life. Find out where specialized athlete ministry is currently taking place.
Our staff study the Scriptures with students and show them how to lead Bible studies with others.
We take students to church and invite them to get involved in local congregations.
We have campus staff who focus on reaching out to international students, and all of our staff minister to students across racial and ethnic barriers.
Engage Culture from a Christian Perspective
We teach students how to take their Christian faith and live it out in the way they study, listen to music, watch television and interact with their friends and family.
We are committed to introducing students to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to equipping students to share their faith with others.
Our Experiential Designs (XD) Team encourages students to participate in creative opportunities for transformation, including adventure, service and travel experiences and summer leadership projects, where they deepen their faith and hone leadership skills.
Our annual Jubilee conference encourages students to dream about how their gifts might be used and developed to serve God and others.
Our staff equip students to be leaders on campus, in clubs and athletics as well as in Bible studies and fellowship groups.
Mission Trips, Service Projects & Summer Opportunities
Our staff invite students to serve others, both locally and internationally, and to deepen their faith and leadership abilities through spring break trips and in-depth summer opportunities.
Our experience has shown that when students are given opportunities to lead and to invest in others while in college, they are better equipped to translate their learning into their various roles after they graduate.
