Out of all the times of my life so far, college was the most challenging, rewarding, and transformative. For it was in college that I learned to be an adult, and more importantly I learned to truly walk the walk of a disciple of Jesus. Before college I lived out a Christian faith that wasn't truly my own, but rather the faith of my family and my home church. That remained the case until I encountered Jesus in a wholly new way through the campus ministry of CCF. CCF helped me to realize that being a Christian meant living and walking in the life of Christ, and not simply going through the Christian motions. CCF helped propel me into l leadership as well giving me the first taste for pastoral ministry that I now find myself fully rooted in. In other words, CCF helped me to become the man of faith that I am today.
“The question might be rightly asked, "Why do you support CCF?" The answer to this question is quite simple: I desire others to experience the same transformation that I did in one of the most pivotal times in their lives; and if CCF helped guide me to become a more devout follower of Jesus, I know that it will help countless others. Kyle Jones (2004)
“We chose to start supporting CCF because we felt like it was important to give back to a ministry God had used in our lives during our college years. College is a time when your faith is challenged and stretched as you make decisions about your future, who you will surround yourself with, and how you will choose to live. CCF provided us with a circle of Christian friends that encouraged us in our walks with Christ. CCF also provided a safe place to grow and learn spiritually through weekly meetings, small groups, and fellowship with other believers. We are thankful for the influence that Jim, Marianna, and other student leaders had on our lives as they led the ministry. As we have grown spiritually, we have learned about the responsibility to steward our financial resources that God has entrusted us with. Looking back, we see how blessed our lives were through being a part of CCF and feel like God has called us to use our resources to advance the work God is doing on the ASU campus.” Tyler & Elyse (Addington) Reese (2008)
“We started attending CCF as sophomores at Appalachian. Speaking personally, CCF was one of the most rewarding and spiritually enriching experiences of my college career. Not only did I meet great friends and my wonderful husband there, but I learned so much about The Lord and myself. Being part of a spiritual community during such an influential time in my life shaped me into a person God could use.
“We choose to support CCF financially because we are grateful for how God used CCF to draw us closer to Him. We understand that the contributions of many individuals made it possible for CCF to be available to us, and it brings us joy to get to be a part of making this ministry available to others. Having been in a college student's shoes, I know what it is like to need the support of a faith community, and i It is a huge privilege to be a part of God's work on campus.” Andrew and Charlotte (Burick) Horn (2008)
“We began supporting CCF right out of college. Even before we were married, we supported CCF individually. It was never even a question for us. We both saw what the Lord was doing through CCF for the Appalachian State campus and we wanted to be a part of that.
“Through our time with CCF, we learned what becoming a follower of Jesus really meant. We saw how staff and leaders challenged their students to have a deeper relationship with the Lord, one that was BOLD and stood out. I was specifically challenged, and it took some time but eventually I surrendered my ENTIRE life to God. CCF also prepared us for life after college. It taught us that we needed to find a church that was centered around the Word and whose leaders weren’t afraid to speak boldly in Christ’s name. The Lord taught us, through CCF, to become servants.
“For those reasons we wanted to do as much as we could financially to help CCF spread the Gospel to the students of Appalachian State University. We want other students to experience what true growth in Christ is all about. And we wanted to be a part of furthering God’s kingdom through CCF. For us, this investment is something God is calling us to make.” Kris and Julie (Troutman) Hartley (2009 & 2008)
“When I decided to move from West Virginia to North Carolina for grad school, I did not know anyone in Boone. My closest relative was 2 hours away, and in the beginning weeks, I was anxious and feared not feeling at home. On top of it all, a relationship I was in at the time ended several months after I moved, and I felt especially alone. It was not easy for me to attend the CCF meetings at first, because I believed my quiet nature made it difficult for me to make friends quickly. But from the start, I could see that the beliefs and actions of those in leadership at CCF were genuine and Christ-centered. In time, I felt more and more like a valued member and began to establish friendships. Even after graduating and moving back to West Virginia, I feel my time with CCF is one of the things I will always remember as a positive one. know that God used my experience at CCF to deepen my faith and relationship with Him - and I hope that by giving back to CCF I can help support and create those same kind of experiences for other students coming to school at Boone.“ Rachel (Westrom) Dahlin (2009)
