Vision 2020 – Focused in Faith

We are thankful for God’s faithfulness as written in Isaiah 25:1 “O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; for You have worked wonders, plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.” His faithfulness is unmistakable and evident in the academic and spiritual growth of our 1200 students and 385 alums. God’s people have also been faithful, giving $50 million over the past 15 years so today’s students can enjoy a robust campus while keeping CCS debt free.

Today, your support is needed to help provide the final touches to our Vision 2020 Capital Campaign and campus including:

– Indoor Practice Facility and South Field House Expansion
– Establishment of the CCS Endowment
– Enhancements to LS Activity Center, Tennis/Soccer and Baseball/Softball Complex

These projects represent a $4 million need and we appreciate your generosity in helping to meet this need.
