The re-establishment of the Bible School in Hakha, as needs arose, began with the emergency meeting of the Board of Directors (BD) of Chin Christian Literature Society (CCLS) held on March 25, 1989 at U Pek Thang’s residence in Falam. At that meeting, all attendants agreed and decided that CCLS found the Bible School in Hakha. At the same time a working committee was formed for the purpose of materializing the decision at that meeting. God blessed the diligent and restless work of the working committee and CCLS was able to open the Bible school in Hakha on June 1, 1990 with Diploma in Theology program, and was named “Chin Bible School (CBS)”. The fourth CCLS BD meeting held at Hakha Baptist Association office in Hakha in 1993 changed the name to “Chin Biblical Seminary (CBS)”. And for a third time the name was changed again to “Chin Christian College” (CCC) by the 8th CCLS Executive Committee meeting held at Thantlang Association of Baptist Churches (TABC) office on May 22, 1993.
At the 2nd Triennial Meeting of CCLS, which was held on January 8-9, 1994 at Zion Baptist Church, Hakha, the name CCLS was changed to “Chin Association for Christian Communication” (CACC). The meeting also confirmed the Constitution of CACC and Chin Christian College functioned as the main ministry of the Education Department of CACC. Then, the secretary of Education Department of CACC, according to the then constitution, was the principal of CCC. After 25 years, God blessed CCC’s long vision: “To Transform the College into a University” and the name of the institution was changed into Chin Christian University by the 9th Triennial Meeting of CACC, held at Hakha Khuahlun Baptist Church on April 4, 2015. Today, CCU is one of the full-fledged accredited members of the Association for Theological Education in South East Asia (ATESEA). Up to March 2015, CCU has produced a total of 1021 graduates. At present, CCU has three departments: Theology, English Languages Studies, and Business Administration, with 18 fulltime faculty members and 10 members of office staff.
