We are a global higher education association dedicated to advancing faith and intellect for the common good.
As a member service, our institutions have a dedicated partner in the CCCU on the hill. We advocate on behalf of our institutions as if they have a seat at the table.
The CCCU offers faith-integrated, off-campus study programs in nine locations across the U.S. and around the world that foster studentsâ€™ intellectual, cultural, vocational, and spiritual growth.
More than just a job-finding service, the CCCU Career Center links passionate people to meaningful careers with faith-based employers, in faith-related positions, and in all sectors of higher education.
We organize numerous conferences that provide leaders on our campuses with important faith-centered professional development in their respective fields.
To fulfill our mission and meet the needs of our members, we provide unique services for administration, faculty, students, and friends of Christian higher education.

Thirst Missions is looking for college-age interns to join our summer staff in Alaska or Puerto Rico, late May to mid-August, 2020 (start and end dates are tentative and negotiable). This is an exciting opportunity to travel, serve people in need, meet and serve alongside people from many different locations, while gaining leadership and management experience. With this opportunity, you will receive paid travel expenses (round-trip airfare), lodging, and meals, as well as all the materials you need to carry out your role.
A few details:
Each intern will be an integral member of our 2-4 person leadership teams as we host churches from North America each week. We will be staying with the participating teams and will provide each of them with an average of a week-long mission trip in Alaska or Puerto Rico. Responsibilities could include lining up ministry opportunities, ministry sites, restaurants, recreation, and transportation. Other responsibilities might include preparing breakfast and snacks, leading worship and debriefing, participating and leading meetings, and generally guiding each church’s trip. Our goal is to use each team member’s strengths and interests to best serve the churches and groups. Expect to serve on 5-6 week long mission trips throughout the summer.
