Alumni Spotlight

This alumni spotlight is an attempt by Clearwater Christian College to identify graduates who are being recognized in their field of study by the community, their profession, or their organization or company. By featuring these individuals, we are attempting to show prospective students what they can do with a degree from the College in this specific area of study.

Alumni features are divided by academic program and most of the links will take you away from our CCC site. Due to the nature of some listings, you may be required to locate the alumnus identified by reading the information carefully or scrolling down the entire link. Some of these links expire in a short period of time and every attempt will be made to keep the site current.

Freshman pastoral studies major, Allan, enjoys the mentorship that he receives at CCC. "My time at CCC has helped me grow as a witness of the Gospel. God, through His amazing grace, has taught me to speak to others about His love and salvation. Mr. Barton and Dr. Carver have helpfully spoken truth into my life throughout our discussions. I'm a Pastoral major and plan to possibly work with young adults or Missions in the future. I'm constantly encouraged to live for the glory of God and to love my Lord intimately. I chose this school for the purpose of my growth and I'm glad I made that decision. It's been an awesome experience to learn how to glorify God on and off campus. God's really using CCC to mold me into His image. It's been pretty awesome and I'm thankful for how the faculty looks out for us."
