In Memoriam of Libby Weed
It is with great sadness that the Center for Christian Studies announces the passing of one of our inaugural board members, Mary Elisabeth “Libby” Weed. Libby’s life in this world was a demonstration of a character formed by the grace of Christ. She was the very image of gentleness, kindness, patience, and wisdom. Libby was a remarkable Christian through whom the love of Christ was made manifest. When someone remarked to her husband, Michael, how kind and beautiful Libby was, he would laugh and say, “do you know how hard it is to be married to a saint?” Libby was indeed a saint. And she was an immeasurable blessing to her congregation, the Brentwood Oaks Church of Christ, to Brentwood Christian School, and she has been instrumental in the development and guidance of the Center for Christian Studies.

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. For we are God's fellow workers. You are God's field, God's building.
1 Corinthians 3:6–8
Our teaching staff have attained the highest academic credentials and have taught in higher education for many years.
With the rising cost and inaccessibility of graduate study, seminary degrees and continuing education have become out of reach for many ministers. CCS offers the quality education without the cost.
Scholarship for the Church
CCS exists to serve the church at large as well, with material such as bible class curricula, basic introductions to Christian faith and practice, and a journal for deeper exploration of the Christian faith.
