Christian College ... the Disciples College - History

Since 1947, people have come to find that Christian College is a community of Disciples who teach and learn in order to seek and serve. Since our doors first opened, we have welcomed anyone to the opportunities to discover God's will and to develop the skills to do it. Mostly these have been students attending the University of Georgia, the "campus next door" (back when Christian College of Georgia had a campus of its own). These students would come to attend classes, to have a place to live and to join in the programs and projects that defined an institution committed to "service-learning" (before "service-learning was cool). Courses in the practical ministry have always been offered: Biblical Studies, Theology, and the Practice of Ministry: Preaching, Teaching, Administration, and Pastoral Care. As one of the mainline campus ministry centers at the University of Georgia, Christian College has always enjoyed the opportunity to serve students by helping to keep them connected to the life of the Church. And most importantly, as Disciples of Christ, Christian College has always been ecumenical in its programs and ministries.
