“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, [a] so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,” - Colossians 1:9-10
The promise of a brighter future is given to all. But how do you get there? At America’s Christian Credit Union it is our mission to give you the tools to become empowered in each stage of life. Whether you are saving for retirement, fixing your credit, learning to be a good financial steward or embarking on a new journey we are here to help. We have the tools that can help you build a stronger future.
One initiative we focus on is the effect of Christian higher education. We believe education is the fuel for a brighter and stronger future. Our commitment runs deep, striking partnerships with other Christ-centered institutions and students across the country and developing financial solutions to address the growing tuition bill.
In late 2016, with a mustard seed of faith, we funded the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU)’s Economic Impact Study. The study revealed that the work of Christ-centered institutions has an economic impact worth $60 billion annually, which translates to $166 million per day. In addition, it was found that the students of CCCU member institutions contribute 5.4 million hours of community service each year.
“If we want to be effective communicators of the full value of Christian higher education, we must know the vital statistics of how and why Christian colleges impact their locality, their state, and the nation, We are grateful for the leaders at ACCU, who recognize both the value of Christian colleges and universities and the need for this research.” - CCCU President Shirley V. Hoogstra.
