"In a world of shallow distraction, there exists an ocean full of depth and peace waiting to be discovered in each one of us."
Let's elaborate on those below!
We are invited into transformation through the gospel of Christ, yet that transformation hardly ever happens outside of conversations. At CCF, we don't seek to simply have "conversation" that passes along information. Instead, we seek to ask powerful questions that lead us into discovering God's heart and ourselves. We ask questions centered around Scripture, around who we're becoming, around our own identities.
These questions lead us into discovery, where new neuro-pathways are created. Then these new thoughts "stick" and transformation happens. Questions and conversation are the tools we use to dig deep into ourselves, Scripture, and God's heart for the world.
What is it that truly lasts beyond the college years? Connections. The connections created in college are some of the strongest bonds we experience throughout our lives. At CCF, we strive to help facilitate those connections so that each student finds a deep community of love and encouragement that will last well beyond their college career.
But we don't want to stop at just the student relationships. We strive to be the connecting force between the students, our campus, our community, and our alumni. We want to bring all together to live out Jesus' invitation to dwell in unity as the body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:10
The "success" of a campus ministry cannot truly be measured until years after graduation. For a short period of time, we are entrusted to invest in each student, then send them out. Our goal is that each student will be truly committed to following Christ for the long haul as they leave our ministry.
So, we focus on building the foundation that they can stand again and again. We give tools and frameworks to help study Scripture, we provide coaching and mentoring to help them understand life, we teach and model daily and weekly practices that help us connect with God anew and afresh. All this so their foundation may stand firm as others build on it in the future.
