Thank you for your interest in Church and Community Relations. It has been a historic year for the Chowan Christian Service Association (CCSA). The CCSA achieved a long sought after goal of reaching one million dollars in the endowment. Reaching this milestone allows more students pursuing a call to Christian Vocation to receive needed scholarship funding. For this current year in 2012-13, twenty one students are receiving the CCSA scholarship.
In celebration of this milestone the CCSA desires to strengthen its support of the Christian mission at Chowan in preparing students for Christian Service. The CCSA seeks to do this through the Missions Endowment Fund. This endowment will serve to perpetuate and offset the cost of local and abroad mission experiences.
Through various mission experiences students are exposed to different models of ministry. After a mission trip to the Christian Activity Center in East St. Louis where students were camp counselors for inner city kids, Taccarri Graves said "she now knows her passion." Taccarri desires now after graduation to return to her home town to help children from similar circumstances. The Mission Endowment will help send more students like Taccarri to learn how they may better serve Christ.
Thank you for your support of the Chowan Christian Service Association and for how it impacts the students here at Chowan! If you would like more information about the CCSA , please let me know, I would enjoy speaking with you.With gratefulness,
