Ready for College?

Posted on by Heidi Brunsting

Thinking about what comes next after high school?

One of the most formative and faith-building times of my life happened during my college years. The experience of being away from family in a new environment challenged all that I knew, while being at a Christian school gave me new roots to grow deeper in my faith with friends and faculty to support me. I learned what it meant to claim faith as my own, and what it looked like to live out that faith individually and within the context of Christian community. And I made some of the best friends of my life.

Growing up I was exposed to a variety of schooling options: private school, home school and public school. As I prepared to graduate from my public high school I knew I wanted my university experience to include Biblical studies, and began researching Christian colleges. After a 10-hour drive and a one day visit, I was sold on Colorado Christian University. It was the right fit for me. My experience at CCU compelled me into Christian ministry and helped lay the groundwork for who I would become and my life-long passions.

Are you thinking about attending a Christian college but not sure where to begin? Finding the right college fit has never been easier. Meet representatives from over 70 schools across the U.S. at Denver Youth for Christ’s Christian College Fair of Colorado. With schools like my own alma mater Colorado Christian University, Baylor University, Oral Roberts University and many, many more, you’ll have the chance to get a feel for each school’s community and find what they have to offer their students.

Join us for this 4-day event in Colorado Springs, Highlands Ranch, Loveland or Arvada. We can't wait to see where God takes you!
