Church Relations


At CIU, we strive to educate people from a biblical worldview to impact the nations with the message of Christ. As a multi-denominational university, we value our relationships with various churches throughout our community and actively seek new ways to serve and better connect with churches.

One way we serve churches is through worship nights specifically for youth groups, and we would love to bring this to your church! A band of talented CIU students will lead worship and fellowship with your students, and a CIU seminary student will share a message. It’s a great way to introduce CIU to your youth, as well as provide a break for your volunteers. We would love the opportunity to serve your congregation and support your mission!

Church Matching Grant

The purpose of the church matching grant is to encourage churches and parachurch organizations to provide scholarship support for their students who are training to become servant leaders in the church or in marketplace ministry. CIU will match up to $1,000 per year for a full-time residential student. To apply, submit a Church Matching Grant Form and your donation to the Financial Aid office.

Facility Rental

CIU has a wide array of classrooms, conference rooms, outdoor spaces, and auditoriums available to rent for your next event. Our buildings are clean and well-maintained, providing an excellent atmosphere to host your guests. We also have catering available through our on-campus food services team, Hallmark Dining, who provide a variety of quality food options. 

Group Visits

We would love to plan a visit for your youth group! Your group can take a campus tour, have a complimentary lunch in our dining hall, attend chapel or a class, meet with faculty and connect with our Admissions team.

We will customize your visit schedule based on the amount of time you have and what you want to experience while on campus. Register now and our Campus Visit Coordinator will be in touch soon. If you have any questions, please call (803) 807-5058.
