HEY, HEY, HEY!!!
OK, guys WELCOME BACK TO CCU!! We love you and since we are still small enough to know every student’s name we know and love you too! This is a new section for CCU and we need your help. Ready?!
Posted in this section are personal reflections from our CCU alumni. We would love to hear from you too. What was your CCU experience like? How did God call you to CCU? In what ways did God meet you in your walk of faith through CCU? We want to hear from you!
We would also love to get pictures and testimonies of your life after CCU. We also would love to get your ideas on the best way to offer alumni get togethers, fun events and other cool ideas you may have! CCU has to be one of the most remarkable works of God in higher education with multiple moves and iterations over the past years. Share with us your season at CCu to encourage others to walk by faith and not by sight.
Looking forward to hearing from YOU!
2008 Graduate In Christian Education, Jenny Chavez Has Published Her First Book!
Jenny says, “It’s about four women in a Bible study. One of them has cancer and she challenges the others to go after what they feel is their unfulfilled dreams. It’s sort of a bucket list story, but actually what they really want is what everyone really wants, to be loved and appreciated. To find it they have to delight themselves in what God has for them. That’s the message of the book. I’m hoping that what people will take away from the book is that God has them where they are and thats where they will find their calling. Ps. 37:4 I hope you’ll read it and enjoy it. “
What else has Jenny been up to?
“Since graduation from CCTC in 2008 as part of the first class, I have been working at what is now Canon Christian Academy in Belen, New Mexico. Last year we graduated our first class. I work as the Secondary English teacher, and I’m happy to say I love my job. I take the students from 7th to 12th grade and teach them Writing and Literature. If they don’t know how to write a paper in college or who John Milton is, then it’s all my fault, but if they become the next Shakespeare…then I blame the media because I never much cared for Romeo and Juliet. On a personal level my home with my husband of over thirty years is now an empty nest which has given me a little time to pursue my own writing. I finally published a novel I wrote years ago. It’s a story about pursuing the desires God places on your heart. It’s called Thirty-Seven:Four and it’s now available online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Westbow Press. I’m praying it’s the start of a new career. Not that I’d leave teaching, but that I’d have another venue to share Jesus with others. I’m so grateful for my time at CCU. I continue to pray for the school and the students who seek to fulfill God’s calling on their lives. “
