Ben Burkholder is a CCO Associate, volunteering his time to minister to students at La Roche University. He holds an M.Div. from Talbot School of Theology, and he recently earned a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Duquesne University. His wife, Jennifer, serves as a Partnership Coordinator with the CCO.
"The CCO is the most strategic college ministry organization I know of that seeks to bring college students into relationship with local churches," says Ben. "If there is any organization for which I would desire to volunteer my time, it is certainly the CCO.
"I have been very blessed by this organization over the past several years as they have developed my wife's skills and abilities. In fact, through the CCO's impact on my wife, I have learned a much more holistic way of thinking about how my faith impacts how I live my life as an American citizen. For this, I will always be grateful."
