Who We Are

 
The Christian Campus House (CCH) began in August 1968, as the fulfillment of a dream of several Christian men in Columbia, MO. CCH was one of the first such student groups on the University of Missouri campus.
 
The Christian Campus House is a non-denominational campus ministry at Mizzou which offers opportunities for students to grow deeper in their faith. The staff and students of CCH desire to meet people where they are in their faith, whether merely seeking answers to questions or desiring to grow deeper in their knowledge of God.
 
CCH also offers housing for students who wish to share in a Christian atmosphere of friendship, encouragement, and support. CCH is a recognized student organization on the MU campus and a member of the Association of Campus Ministries (ACM). Though centered at the Mizzou campus, involved students may attend any of the colleges in Columbia and Moberly. We not only provide housing, but we offer a variety of opportunities for students to get involved including: A midweek worship service on campus called The Well, student service opportunities, small groups Bible studies, retreats, mission trips, and much more!
 
CCH has four full-time staff members: Lance Tamerius, Director; Corey Whitaker, Campus Minister; Becky Doran, Women’s Ministry; and David Sowers, Campus Minister to International students. CCH also has six part-time staff members: Leroy Anthony, Facilities Director; Lydia Weideman, Women’s Minister; Dennis Messimer, Minister to International students; Linda Messimer, Minister to International students; Don Stoll, Minister to International students, and Ben Wellsand, Minister to International students.
 
In short, CCH at Mizzou exists not only to conserve the faith of Christian students, but to help them leave with a stronger faith than when they arrived at college.
