About Cornerstone Christian University
Cornerstone Christian University was founded in 1999 and is a pioneer in distance education. Cornerstone Christian University students span the globe. They are successful pastors, missionaries, Christian educators, counselors and business leaders. Education at CCU is based on the Judaeo-Christian traditional approach in contrast to the humanistic, shifting systems of secular education. We believe the Christian traditional approach provides the student with the best possible degree programs and methods of study.
CCU provides three flexible ways to study: on-campus, online and external studies programs. Studies at CCU are geared toward busy adult life that needs a student friendly, accelerated program to accommodate their busy lifestyle. On-campus courses are offered in once a week format. Off-campus courses can be taken through printed syllabi, quiz-exam, and the online format. Students are also offered a variety of on-campus workshops and regional workshops. Graduate students have the option of completing their degree through CCU or through Cornerstone Theological Seminary.
The vision for Cornerstone Christian University was given to the founder, Dr. Ted Ridoré in 1999, to not only illuminate the world with the word of God, and combines both scriptural and secular knowledge to equip & develop men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential to impact the world in all areas of academia.
CCU‘s mission is to provide men and women with academic excellence through a combined biblical and secular intellectually based curriculum that empowers them to become effective leaders towards a brighter future.
Meet few from our alumni and read what they say about Cornerstone Christian University
"I earned my first Doctor in Secular Education and I felt that I needed to further my education in Christian Education but could not think of a better school than Cornerstone Christian University. I never regret that decision. You won’t either!"
"I love Cornerstone Chris tian University. I have the privilege to earn my doctor of Psychology and counseling from CCU. I strongly recommend you this school for your studies."
"Cornerstone has impacted my life in such a wonderful way. I have been struggling to earn my degree from different schools but my lack of focus has kept me from achieving that goal. Cornerstone held my hand to complete my Bachelor and my Master. I wanted to stop there but another boost from CCU kept me going. Now I am completing my doctorate. To me, CCU creates an atmosphere of comfort for its students that are beyond reality. I do recommend you Cornerstone with all fiber of my being."
"Coming from a catholic background, the knowledge and understanding that I received from CCU is beyond my expectation. Since I completed m y Master in Christian Psychology and Counseling, I have an opportunity work more effectively in ministry.If you are looking for a great school, CCU is the school for you."
"Cornerstone Christian University provides the quality of Christian Education that you deserve. I have the opportunity to earn my Bachelor, my Master, and currently pursuing my Doctorate through CCU. Not only that, I have another privilege. I have the opportunity to teach as well. This creates another opportunity to pass on to other students what I have learned over the years."
"If I left a state university to attend Cornerstone Christian University, it is because I found what I needed and what I was looking for. Although It may be difficult to understand what I’m telling you because I am the alumni but once you sign up, you’ll see I was telling you the truth."
"I am so happy that I made the decision to attend Cornerstone Christian University. I never thought that, one day I could have my degree. A degree in Early Childhood Education will help me greatly with my son and the children I may have in the future.I share my graduation with my son because he means the world to me. Thank you CCU for being there when I needed you the most."
"Cornerstone the best school that I know of. The instructors and the staff are great, very professional and caring. I was not just a number in the accounting book. I was a live human being to them. After I answered God’s calling in my life, the necessity to acquire biblical knowledge was important. With my busy family, work, and church busy schedule, I could not find a school to meet my needs. CCU met my needs the day I met the Admissions Office. If you can relate to my situation, search no more, check with CCU."
"After earning my master in Clinical Christian Psychology, from Cornerstone University in Louisiana, I searched for an affordable and credible in my home town in Orland, FL., to pursue my Ph.D. After much searching and a recommendation from my former Dean, FCU and I chose CCU.I have never regretted that decision. Small classroom, individual attention from the president and other staff members, and interactive learning are some of the benefits to be gained there. Today, I operate a branch extension of CCU in Jamaica, West Indies. I highly recommend Cornerstone Christian university to those in serious search for well-rounded training for ministry."
"Cornerstone Christian University is doing exactly what its motto states, “illuminating the world with the Word of God”. I have been in church since the age of 9, I once considered myself to be a very religious person but it was not until I begin studying God’s Word that I realize how much I never really know him or his purpose in my life. The experience you’ll have at cornerstone whether it’s online, correspondence, or on campus, will truly challenge you and emboldens you to embrace your calling."
I have been a double major student since 2007 from two different universities in such Nova southeastern and Cornerstone Christian University. Three years ago, I was honored with a Master of Arts in theology. I was thinking about getting a higher degree into Pastoral Leadership program at CCU. However, money kept me from doing so. At the end of ceremony, the president and founder of CCU, Dr. Ted Ridore, decided to give away 25 full scholarships. Students have to pay only for books and University fees. Unfortunately, I did not receive a scholarship on my own. Then, Dr. Ted said, I am certain with all my heart: if someone who received one of the 25 scholarships cannot use it for whatever reason, “please give it to someone else who can use it.” Suddenly, a young lady named Cynthia, who used to belong to the same church as I did, stood up and asked who wanted a free doctoral scholarship. I promptly answered, “Please give it to me, my sister.”With all, I have no doubt to recommend this University to everyone who really wants to study the word of God to search this faculty at first before a farther search. I guarantee that you will not regret your times and investments you are going to initiate toward the university because the staff will be guiding you from beginning to end. Thank you CCU for the good faith!
"Studying with Cornerstone Christian University was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The flexible payment plan that fit perfectly into my tight budget gave me the privilege to earn my Masters in Pastoral Leadership through CCU. Their courses are well researched and help cultivate a high standard of learning. I have been greatly blessed, my future has never been so clear. I know where I am going. My understanding as well as my passion in God’s Word has been birthed as a result of studying with CCU. Now I am making my plan to go back for my Doctor’s in Leadership and Management. If you are considering schools for your Studies, search no further, give Cornerstone Christian University a try and you won’t be disappointed."
