Dear Prospective Student,

In 1987, I enrolled as a student at Columbia

International University because I shared the

university’s heart for reaching the nations with the

message of Jesus Christ.

During my student years, I came to know and appreciate

CIU’s five core values: the Authority of Scripture, World

Evangelization, Prayer and Faith, Victorious Christian

Living, and Evangelical Unity. These core values shape and define CIU because they

represent our purpose and passion.

Today, as in 1987, CIU continues its mission of training professional ministers and

ministering professionals to impact the world with the message of Christ. Our

programs of study are designed to equip you in the academic area or profession of

your choice and to provide you with a strong foundation in God’s Word and His


I believe that an education at CIU will transform you intellectually, professionally,

and spiritually as you gain new friends, learn, and experience God in a new way.

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

tell you everything you want to know. If we can help you personally, please call

(800) 777-2227 or email the Admissions office at

to discuss your

specific needs or questions with one of our counselors.

Warmly in Christ,

William H. Jones, D.Min.
