How will you extend the Legacy of Ministry Education in 2023?
Since 1957, God has provided many supporters who have provided funds for a valuable Christian college experience at an affordable cost on the campus of CCCB in Moberly, Missouri.
Friends from around the country are coming together in 2023 to support the annual fund for ministry education at Central Christian College of the Bible.
“imagine TOGETHER” is inspired by Ephesians 3:20, praising God for His power to do “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.”
Working together with His people, Central provides innovative ministry education in multiple locations for the Christian church.
Innovative ministry education is flexible in delivery, responsive to students, and focused on the future.
Multiple locations include wherever the church may need more trained workers.
The Christian Church fellowship of congregations is Central's primary audience while also serving the church at large.
In 2023, committed churches and individuals can “imagine TOGETHER” building a legacy for ministers now and in the future.
In the past few years, many donors have given to the CCL Foundation to develop a new site in the Cincinnati area.
Most recently, a merger with St. Louis Christian College has brought in another group of supporters.
If you also believe in the importance of ministry education for the future of the church, you are invited to support Central's distinct mission.
CCCB exists to educate biblical servants for a faithful life of kingdom ministry.
Central offers residential, graduate, online, and continuing education.
Biblical servants are able to know, interpret, live out, and teach God’s Word.
A faithful life pursues doctrinal convictions, spiritual discipleship, and personal relationships.
Kingdom ministry happens when new workers are equipped to serve in the body of Christ within a local church, in the marketplace, or on the mission field.
Your support of the CCCB annual fund for ministry education sustains the educational expenses for locations, programs, services, and scholarships.
Educational locations provide regional sites for biblical truth and training for students and leaders.
The Moberly campus has seven buildings on 26 acres, with classrooms, offices, housing, and much more. This location brings residential and graduate students from around the region and across the country.
The Cincinnati site at the CCL Center (8095 Connector Drive, Florence, KY 41042) has library resources, archaeology artifacts, offices, classrooms, and meeting space to support ministry leaders.
The St. Louis site at The Westport (11960 Westline Industrial Dr, Ste. 230, St. Louis, MO 63146) contains offices, classrooms, a library, and more.
The CCCB annual fund for ministry education provides $900,000 for operational expenses of Central's locations, including the cost of support staff, maintenance, utilities, and lease payments.
Educational programs prepare biblical servants for a faithful life of kingdom ministry. Your gifts underwrite the cost of several innovative programs.
Undergraduate degrees prepare preachers, youth ministers, Christian counselors, missionaries, and more.
Graduate degrees can be completed in two years through the Russell School of Ministry.
Continuing education equips ministers and supports alumni of CCCB, St. Louis Christian College, and Cincinnati Christian University.
Partnership options provide additional areas of study to develop Christian workers for the marketplace.

Learning software facilitates professor/student interaction to promote educational success.
Online resources support remote and lifelong learning habits.

Library collections include standard reference works and contemporary resources at Central's educational sites.
The CCCB annual fund for ministry education provides $300,000 for high-quality resources essential to the student learning experience.
Educational scholarships motivate students to pursue a college degree.
Central offers many generous scholarships to help students avoid accumulating debt. The Toch Scholarship Plan provides scholarships between $2,500. and $10,000 per year. The Central Grant covers the remaining gap for those in need.
These scholarships play a key role in new student recruitment. They also encourage students to continue and complete their educational programs to prepare for sustained ministry success.
