Founded in Fall of 2002, Christ Central Institute (CCI) is a successful and growing center of Christian higher education, missions training, and career arts training. CCI has established a reputation for high quality teaching and research in Christian service and outreach. Christ Central Institute is the educational division of its parent organization, Christ Central Ministries, Inc. The Wagener Campus is home to the College of Missions, Missions Training, and the Internship programs.
The Career Arts Institute offers classes in disciplines such as carpentry, heavy equipment operation, welding, and computer repair, as well as programs to obtain state certification in some disciplines. Most of these programs are offered at the ten acre Lexington campus. The heavy equipment classes are offered at the Wagener campus.
Students attend CCI's College of Missions with fully scholarshipped room, board, and tuition, reside in beautifully-renovated homes and apartments in Wagener, South Carolina, and share meals together in the Community Missions Research Building and The Expressions Coffee Shop on campus. Classes offered by the Career Arts Institute are fee-based classes designed to provide professional skills and state certifications for the student.
CCI also offers GED training in three week intensive GED Camps as well as seventeen week GED Courses. The Camps are located in designated areas around the state of South Carolina and the courses are offered at the Wagener campus. The GED test is given by the state of South Carolina on location at the end of the GED Camp intensive.
CCI places a great deal of emphasis on training for missions. Weekly Worship Service, conducted by Pastor Joshua Gilmore and the Missions Training classes, hosted at the Wagener campus, provides dynamic training to prepare for the Christian life and mission.
