FROM THE PRESIDENT…
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 truth.
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.

Warmly in Christ,
William H. Jones, D.Min.
