Columbia International University serves Christ and His church by inspiring, developing, and equipping people for lifelong pursuit of God and servant leadership in His global cause.As a biblical university we will aim to grow and expand the liberal arts programs in the undergraduate school, while continuing to strengthen our Bible and ministry program. But to produce the same high impact graduates of the past requires different methods for the future. That's because the world has shifted radically in the last 60 years. Here at home, the United States is no longer a Christian nation, but a post- Christian nation. Meanwhile, overseas, typical missionaries are often not wanted in the least reached parts of the world. However, unreached cultures aggressively recruit those professionals who can help develop their societies.So to meet the challenges both in the United States and abroad, CIU will produce "professional Christians" such as pastors, but also "Christian professionals." Those are graduates who are able to enter closed countries because of their professional training, but able to evangelize the country because of their Bible training.Here at home, they can be entering the marketplace to be salt and light in their chosen professions. Only as we produce more "professional Christians" AND "Christian professionals" will we impact the nations with the message of Christ.
