CCO calls college students to serve Jesus Christ with their entire lives. It has grown from a regional ministry with three campuses to an expanding national footprint with over 140 campuses. From the beginning, the CCO has placed staff in churches to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to campuses and invite students into the lives of local congregations. The CCO’s unique style of discipleship encourages students to live out their faith in their studies, jobs, families, and communities.
