The mission of Calvary Chapel University at YDI, “Learn Jesus, Live Jesus, Love Jesus” is clearly seen in our Faculty and Staff as it is lived out in their daily lives. Every Faculty member is currently serving the Lord in ministry in addition to teaching at CCU/YDI. Students will be the recipients of the love, grace, and wisdom of our Lord as it is poured into and through our faculty.
