The Education Club is a newly founded club at CCC that helps and allows those interested in education to gain an understanding of what the field has to offer. The club works with the Education Department to help create future teachers and help those stay connected to their own education. Learning is a lifelong process and as this club kicks off, we want to give members a chance to engage in that process before, during, and after entering the field.

Students at Central who are interested in helping elementary students with their math, reading, and science studies are invited to join CHUMS. This organization connects struggling students with caring college mentors in an education partnership that fosters positive relationships and educational success. Volunteers meet with elementary students before or after school to provide tutoring, guidance, and a listening ear to young students at local schools; also our college students will receive a small stipend for their time investment.

The Central Christian College chapter of Phi Beta Lambda exists to serve as a vital link between education and experience by providing opportunities to develop business skills necessary for success in all aspects of life and ministry.
PBL is organized on local, state and national levels. Business teachers/advisers and advisory councils (including school officials, business people and community representatives) guide local chapters. Central’s advisor is Professor Heath Whitehouse. State advisers and committee members coordinate chapter activities for the national organization.
Every year a group of PBL students from Central compete at the state level. Testing covers numerous fields of business. Usually we bring home 30-40 awards. You can see our awards hanging on a wall in the Business Department next to the Archer Center in the RBC building.
Each year, the best and brightest of PBL convene in a national conference to compete in leadership events, share their successes and learn new ideas about shaping their career future. These four-day sessions are considered the pinnacle of the PBL experience. Central has had nine students participate in Nationals, and almost every student has placed in the top 10 Nationally in their events.
Traditionally business majors are most eager to join PBL, but there are opportunities for pre-law, sports management and communication majors as well. PBL is a fantastic opportunity for students trying to decide if business is the right course for them. Also, it is great for business students and others to reinforce their chosen course and to learn and play with peers of common interests and goals.
The Central chapter of PBL would like to welcome all current members and everyone interested in joining to attend one of our monthly meetings. Don’t let such a great opportunity pass you by another year.
- Opportunities for leadership
- Professional development
- Networking opportunities
- Easy membership
- Excellent resume headline
