I have been involved with the CCO for more than 30 years, first as a student, then as a staff member and now as a board member. I think reaching college students with God’s love and challenging them to following Jesus is crucial work. Students are at a crossroads in their lives. The CCO, as an organization, has grown and adapted without ever losing focus on its core purpose and its integrity.
I am excited about the ministry of the CCO. As an organization, it is committed to reaching college students with the good news of new life in Jesus Christ. It goes about that task with integrity, focus, and passion. For close to 40 years, it has worked faithfully at “transforming college students to transform the world.” It has a big vision and a big heart.
