Manhattan Christian College exists to impact the world for Christ. Founded in 1927 by Dr. Eugene C. Sanderson, the vision of the college has always been that every student and graduate would be prepared and motivated to penetrate the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ regardless of their chosen profession.
MCC is a private Christian college with a very strategic location across the street from a major university. Those two characteristics combine to help MCC provide a unique training ground for young leaders to help them become the best they can be to better the world around them.
The rigorous academic programs are rooted in the Bible and help students receive an education that deepens their knowledge of God’s Word, matures them in their personal relationship with Christ, and prepares them to be able to share the Gospel in their sphere of influence. Students have the opportunities to grow spiritually and intellectually in a variety of settings such as the classroom, chapel, residence halls, mission trips, small groups, local church involvement, and their own personal worship.
MCC’s mission is summed up in these words, “to educate, equip, and enrich Christian leaders.” To fulfill that mission, leadership training is an intentional focus of the student experience. Students are prepared to be leaders who serve Christ and others. Hands-on experience is strongly encouraged to help them develop their unique God-given strengths and abilities.
The strength of the MCC experience is found in relationships. The college is a close-knit community of believers where personal relationships with fellow students as well as faculty and staff are the norm. Life-long friendships, that will help support them throughout their life of service, are forged in every facet of the life of the college.
God has called every believer to “go into all the world.” Manhattan Christian College exists to develop leaders who are first and foremost servants of Christ with a passion to change the world and a willingness to go wherever God leads.
MCC is nondenominational, historically affiliated with the independent Christian Churches and Churches of Christ of the Restoration Movement.
