The original CCSP promo video is back by popular demand. It was retired after CCSP New Zealand stopped going to Samoa after we moved the program to the marine wonderland of Kaikoura and started doing our marine course right outside our own front door!! Apart from the Samoa references and images this video captures the heart and soul of CCSP.
A semester in the culturally rich and environmentally breathtaking country of Belize offers CCSP students a mind-blowing learning experience! CCSP's tropical campus on the Macal River is home to toucans, iguanas, leaf-cutter ants, and much more. From snorkeling inches above brilliant coral reefs and studying the verdant tropical rainforest, to undertaking internships specailizing in public health, biological research, agriculture, or whatever your major interest may be, CCSP students consider more fully the nexus of biblical faith, justice, ecology, and sustainable development.
Nestled beneath the mighty Kaikoura mountain range, yet only one mile from the Pacific Ocean, CCSP's New Zealand program offers students an amazing and unique semester experience! By exploring New Zealand's unique culture, beautiful forests, mountain glaciers and abundant marine life (includling sperm whales, dolphins, and seals), CCSP students gain new and exciting perspectives on the nexus of biblical faith, ecology and justice in leading sustainable lifestyles.
CCSP has always been on the leading edge of Christian higher education. For example, when CCSP's founders started the program in 2002 (and prior to that the Global Stewardship Study Program in 1996), creation care wasn't commony accepted as a part of Christian faith like it is today, nor was there a semester long study abroad program focused on creation care. Over the past two decades then, CCSP has had a role helping to make creation care normative within the church. Unfortunately, CCSP's newest program--CCSP cascadia, may have been just a little bit too ahead of its time! We're not sure if that's the cause or not, but what we do know is we have not had enough enrollment to kick off an inaugural CCSP Cascadia semester in either spring 2013, or in fall 2013. Because of this CCSP is suspending the Cascadia program until further notice. We'll use this time to review and refine the program so when we re-launch it we'll have enough enrollment to kick it off.
The Creation Care Study Programs in Belize and New Zealand are looking to hire staff for an August 7th, 2014 start date.
Reading our blogs is the best way to experience the program without being there. It's great for friends and family to keep up with what's going on, and for students considering CCSP it's a great way to get a feel for the program.Read more
