2018-23 Institutional Plan overview

During 2018, the Institutional Planning Task Force completed its work of reaffirming our mission and vision, clarifying our core values, and imagining a “preferred future” approach to define success in the next five years. The result was four strategic themes with initiatives to implement. In the coming issues of theTORCH, we will describe the strategic themes and initiatives in more detail.

Vision Statement: “Dedicated Disciples who Know God’s Word and Serve His Kingdom.”

Our vision is seen most clearly when students and graduates accomplish these outcomes as part of their educational experience:

1. Dedicated Disciples

  • Demonstrate Christlike behavior
  • Develop mature spirituality
  • Participate in Christian community
  • Pursue academic success

2. Know God’s Word

  • Trust Biblical authority and truth
  • Embrace New Testament Christianity
  • Continue to learn and teach others

3. Serve His Kingdom

  • Participate in servant-leader activities
  • Understand Christian church opportunities
  • Discover appropriate career positions
  • Emulate successful graduates
  • Support Great Commission work

Mission Statement:
Central Christian College of the Bible exists to develop servant-leaders for the church.

Theme 1:
Attractive Programs

We will promote learning that equips more servant-leaders for the church. This includes relevant ministry programs and dual-enrollment degrees for students to serve the church in vocational, bi-vocational, and voluntary roles. Students will develop a Biblical worldview and relevant ministry skills to serve God’s kingdom.

Theme 2:
Formative Experiences

We will create conditions that advance dedicated kingdom service. This includes connecting our campus community with positive relationships, preparing students for employment opportunities, and clearly communicating with constituents while giving opportunities for feedback.

Theme 3:
Productive Partners

We will expand our reach through relationships with compatible organizations. This includes training events, service-learning locations, and professional development to serve the needs of churches (our primary customers), students (our immediate customers), and alumni (our long-term customers).

Theme 4:
Supportive Resources

We will broaden the resources required to empower institutional success. This includes growing our enrollment through recruiting and retention improvements and addressing financial concerns by exploring a stewardship campaign and reducing operational expenses and long-term debt.

“We should make plans,
counting on God to direct us.”
(Proverbs 16:9)

As we implement this plan, we are “counting on God” to direct us into the actions and decisions that will please Him and empower our work.
