Christian Community Credit Union Making a Difference
Our vision is to build a community of Christ followers who transform our world through their lives and generosity. Whether it’s through our financial services, tools and resources, or the way we serve our members, we’re passionate about helping churches, ministries, and individuals manage their money wisely so they’ll be blessed and be a blessing to others.
CCCU Kingdom Impact
Simply put, when you choose to partner with CCCU, you’re helping to build churches, expand ministries, and advance God’s Kingdom.
Every time you use a CCCU credit or debit card, you’re changing lives. Through our “Cards that Give to Missions” program, we have been able to donate over $5.9 million to missions and ministry projects since 1995.
Christian Community Credit Union Donates $5,000 For Hurricane Ian Relief
Christian Community Credit Union (CCCU) donated $5,000 to American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) disaster relief effort in response to the devastation left by Hurricane Ian in Florida and other southern states. The unimaginable levels of destruction have led to the loss of lives, hundreds of homes destroyed, and the displacement of thousands of residents.
“We pray for God’s provision and comfort to those impacted by this catastrophe,” said Blair Korschun, Christian Community Credit Union President and CEO. “We invite others to join in sharing Christ’s love to the residents in Florida through ABHMS’ rescue and recovery efforts. Many are in dire need of resources as they face an insurmountable challenge rebuilding their lives and their homes.”
The funds for the donation come from CCCU’s “Cards that Give to Missions” program, in which a portion of the Credit Union’s interchange income (fees merchants pay to card issuers) is donated when cardholders use their Christian Community Credit Union-issued credit cards for purchases. To date, CCCU has given over $5.9 million to Christian causes.
