History

CCU began in 1914 as the Denver Bible Institute, with two students taught by one teacher in several rented buildings. Denver Bible grew to become Denver Bible College, Rockmont College in 1949, and then merged with Western Bible College in 1985 to become Colorado Christian College. The College merged with Colorado Baptist University in 1989 and was renamed Colorado Christian University.

Mission and Vision

CCU’s strategic objectives were adopted by the board of trustees to direct the implementation of the University mission and vision, and to provide context for our first priority: an enduring commitment to Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. The strategic objectives provide a point of convergence for every member of the CCU community and for every aspect of life at CCU, from how we teach and learn in the classroom to how we live with and serve others. Colorado Christian University shall: • Honor Christ and share the love of Christ on campus and around the world • Teach students to trust the Bible, live holy lives, and be evangelists • Be a magnet for outstanding students and prepare them for positions of significant leadership in the church, business, government, and professions by offering an excellent education in strategic disciplines • Teach students how to learn • Teach students how to think for themselves • Teach students how to speak and write clearly and effectively • Give students significant opportunities to serve our Lord while they are at CCU, and help them develop a lifetime habit of such service • Impact our culture in support of traditional family values, sanctity of life, compassion for the poor, Biblical view of human nature, limited government, personal freedom, free markets, natural law, original intent of the Constitution, and Western civilization • Be seekers of truth • Debunk “spent ideas” and those who traffic in them • Ask God to multiply our time and ability to the glory of His great name • Be a servant of the church • Become a great university

Bill Armstrong served for 18 years in the nation’s capitol—six in the House of Representatives and 12 as a U.S. senator. He was a member of the Senate Banking, Senate Finance, and Senate Budget committees and for six years was chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee. A successful businessman, he started or purchased four mortgage banking firms and was formerly chairman of Cherry Creek Mortgage Company, which grew 4,000 percent under his guidance. Armstrong has been a director of six public companies and chairman/owner/operator of 13 private companies, including radio and television stations, a daily newspaper, investment firms, a real-estate brokerage company, and a title insurance company. He is the chairman of both the Denver-based Oppenheimer Funds and software developer Blueberry Systems, director of oil and gas drilling contractor Helmerich & Payne, and was for 17 years a board member of Campus Crusade for Christ. During his years in the Senate, Armstrong established a reputation as a principled, issue-oriented legislator and was prominently “mentioned” as a potential candidate for the U.S. presidency or vice presidency. Relentlessly opposed to big government and excessive regulation, he championed lower taxes, political reform, balanced budgets, and the G.I. Bill. The New York Times described him as “a man whose restless intellect is admired by his foes as well as his friends” and The Denver Post praised his service in the Senate, pointing out that his decision not to run in 1990 came despite the fact that “reelection was virtually guaranteed.” Armstrong became president of Colorado Christian University in 2006. “I feel a great sense of destiny about the opportunity to help educate a new generation of leaders,” he says. “It is the most significant, energizing, and rewarding work I have ever undertaken.”
