FOR PASTORS AND LAY-LEADERS
CCIM College Course is a vigorous year of life-changing study; it is a prescriptive, intensive and compassionate discipleship journey.
Designed to take the body of Christ deeper into authentic relationship with Christ, CCIM College focuses on:
- personal transformation
- good leadership practices
- foundations of spiritual authority
NO CENTRAL LOCATION
CCIM College is for the purpose of education to pastors and lay-leaders in rural areas.
We are not interested in setting up one location or school for this course or any of our work. CCIM College is to be facilitated for those who want it, near to where they live.
CCIM College is designed to go to the areas and people that invite and facilitate the program at their location. It is hosted by local churches and taught by local pastors.
CCIM COLLEGE THROUGH YOUR MINISTRY
CCIM College is material designed for you to use within your area and for pastors there. The materials are free to use.
CCIM College content is for those who are passionate about using the CCIM material within their own community of pastors and lay-leaders and where the Lord has established them in influence.

OUR SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPLEMENTING CCIM COLLEGE
You will need a host church or place (somewhere to meet) and you will need a facilitating pastor (the one to teach the materials).
- The course takes one full year to complete
- You will meet monthly for 2-3 days each time
- Together you will study the material
- Between classes students will complete application assignments
- Each class determines the days they meet and the schedule for the year
- Each class will determine how they will manage food for the days they gather
- We suggest creative solutions for the printing and xeroxing of the materials to you and your students – this needs to be the responsibility of each student or class.
ASSIGNMENTS, TESTING, & CERTIFICATES
The CCIM College course is assessed in three ways: 1. study in a group setting 2. the application assignments with each lesson; 3. the review questions and testing.
Therefore, the testing and review questions are only 1/3 of your focus.
- Each month’s content has it’s own application exercises
- There will be testing at the end of each four month unit
- If you are part of a larger organization then you must take on the responsibility to provide certificates under your ministry name
- If you are small and independent we at CCIM will consider issuing certificates to your students for your year of study (this would be decided on a case by case basis)

A FEW TESTIMONIES OF IMPACT
“The lessons have touched my life. Those days I had a different picture about God. The way I used to take God to be — I knew a man who hated sinners and if there was sin we do not dare to appear before God. Our backgrounds are not very appetizing, many wounds, hearts are scattered beyond repair, and we find the picture of self and the picture that the community has of self not promising of anything good. But actually, God has a different picture of me and I got a different picture of God when I looked at Jesus ministry. To serve I don’t need to be perfect. God sees the broader picture of me and he will get the best out of me.” Beatrice
“The CCIM College Course has been a work for me. I became strengthened and took courage. Before I would feel tired and weakened, but after this course, trials come but I would not be touched. I stand strengthened with courage and this course has made me very well and it has helped me greatly, it has also helped me as I counsel others in my church.” Pastor Christopher
“I’ve benefitted a lot in how to read the Bible. The Bible is a difficult book to read and I started reading it because I had an exam. I have been caught up reading it and I have received revelations from this study by reading the Bible. I wouldn’t have learned how to read the Bible without this course. I thought to work for God I must be good, blameless but I realized as Paul said, even though as a sinner I acted out of ignorance, and God considers me faithful as I come to him. To serve God I thought I needed much, but I realize that the little I have God can use. The little money, things, faith, is exactly what God wants to use, and I must be faithful with a little.” Benjamin
