The year 2018 has been an exciting year at Grace College of Divinity. Our students, staff and faculty have been advancing the Kingdom all over the globe. Here are some highlights:
Faculty and alumni have been working with churches in Santa Marta, Colombia in leadership development for several churches. The purpose is to develop these churches to be able to grow and plant more churches in barrios that need the Gospel.
One of our graduates from our Master’s Program began a new church in Colorado Springs with other alumni of GCD on the team. The church there has prospered and grown very rapidly with numerous salvations being reported.
Graduates from GCD are continuing to work in missions in the areas of training, church development and church planting. Some students from the Brazilian School are working with Jesus Films and American Bible Society on a project this year to reach unreached tribes in Brazil and Guyana. Your gifts to GCD make this possible.
There are many quality organizations with which you could partner and we are so grateful that you have chosen to support GCD in prayer, service and/or your financial generosity. Our students are able to enter the workforce prepared and equipped to rightly divide the Word and lead others to salvation. This would not be possible without people like you. God has chosen to use the people of the earth to advance His Kingdom and we are grateful to have a role.
Please consider a gift today. Your giving is extremely important because it offers immediate resources that are directed to current needs and opportunities around the world. Your gift will help make an immediate impact on our city and everywhere our students go with what they’ve learned at GCD.
We have a new scholarship that is designed to help international students come to GCD from other countries. This scholarship is the Alan Winter Memorial Scholarship in memory of board member Alan Winter. Alan was a very effective missionary who worked among many forgotten peoples who needed to be reached with the Gospel. Our next foreign student coming is from Honduras. This fund helps her and others like her to come to the U.S. to attend GCD and get sent back into the harvest to operate in ministry.
Won’t you also consider a legacy gift to the college? There are many options available to leave a lasting impression on the world. You can name GCD in a will or trust, or you can give the gift of a life insurance policy with GCD as the beneficiary. If the idea of a permanent mark on the world interests you, please contact us to discuss how to contribute to our Legacy Fund.
Your donation is helping to make our world a better place and advancing the Kingdom of God right here, right now.
God Bless You and Merry Christmas to You and Yours,
Dr. Steven Crowther
President, Grace College of Divinity
