TOTAL GOAL

Grace is seeking $3 million for the development of new programs and enhancing our current academic offerings.

The Grace College Worship Arts program, launched in the fall of 2016, is designed to equip students to follow God’s call on their lives in the areas of worship and musical leadership, audio and visual technology, and theatre arts. This program seeks to give students the vision and skills to think theologically, to be equipped in their worships arts specialty, and to have the ability to effectively lead others.

A mechanical engineering degree is the most robust avenue to prepare students for the multifaceted engineering job market. Grace College has enjoyed a partnership with another local university to provide engineering degrees on our campus and believe now is the right time for us to support and grow our own program. Currently, 60 students are enrolled in engineering at Grace and we expect that to grow by offering mechanical engineering on our campus. A new engineering lab and equipment, as well as other start-up costs, will be required as Grace College seeks accreditation to launch the engineering program.

Beginning in the fall of 2017, an associate degree of applied science in agribusiness and a bachelor degree of science in agribusiness will be offered at Grace College. The curriculum will combine science, business and new agriculture courses to provide students with the competencies necessary to run farms and pursue a variety of agriculture careers in today’s marketplace.
