Dear Prospective Student,
In 1987, I enrolled as a student at Columbia International University. CIU attracted
me because of the university’s heart for reaching the nations with the message
of Jesus Christ.
During my student years, I learned about CIU’s five core values: the Authority of
Scripture, World Evangelization, Prayer & Faith, Victorious Christian Living and
Evangelical Unity. These core values represent the DNA of CIU. They shape and
define us by giving us purpose and passion. I’ve never forgotten my student
years here at CIU!
Today, as in 1987, CIU continues its mission of training professional ministers and
ministering professionals to impact the world with the message of Christ. Your
program of study is designed to equip you not only for your professional calling, it
will also equip you to share Christ anytime, anywhere.
Your education at CIU will transform you spiritually, physically, mentally and emo-
tionally. You will gain new friends and experience new encounters with God.
I invite you to come and spend time on our campus. Visit with our students, talk
to our faculty, see our passion and experience what it’s like to really know Him
and make Him known.
This catalog contains information about living and studying at CIU, but it may not

Warmly in Christ,
William H. Jones
