Spiritual Formation | Cincinnati Christian University

Spiritual Formation

At CCU, the spiritual life of every student is a core part of our missional focus. We want to be sure that all students who attend CCU strive for and achieve spiritual growth during their time on our campus.

Spiritual life at CCU is developed through the classes offered on campus. The goal of each class is not only to learn the Bible and practical techniques of ministry, but also to gain a heart for God and the call that He has given to every Christian to fulfill the Great Commission. The professors here understand that for students to serve God to their fullest potential, they have to grow deeper in their spiritual lives through study, prayer, and interaction.

Spiritual Formation Plan
CCU’s traditional undergraduate Spiritual Formation Plan seeks to integrate classroom and co-curricular experiences that encourage individual students to develop in their faith and to evidence this commitment in their choices and lifestyle. Because spiritual formation is a highly individual lifelong journey, CCU’s Spiritual Formation Plan seeks to expose students to a range of growth opportunities while allowing them freedom to focus on activities that are most personally meaningful. Ultimately, the program seeks to help students develop a comprehensive biblical worldview and faith practice that will undergird their personal and professional life after graduation.

CCU encourages students to view the Spiritual Formation Plan and its individual components as structured experiences that provide a framework for the exploration of personal faith and values, with the goal of developing a lifelong discipline of love for God and one’s neighbor. The program does not attempt to measure spirituality or personal commitment, and participation in its various activities should not be taken as the substance of one’s faith but rather as a venue for the growth and expression of faith.
