Being at Grace for the past 4 years has changed my life. I’ve grown tremendously as a person and in my faith. I’ve become closer to God and also gained many valuable friendships. The classes helped guide me to scripture and made me more devoted to learning and God. I know now that I am more equipped than ever to help spread the word of God!

The MBA program at Grace is phenomenal. The faculty are the real deal, running their own successful businesses and teaching valuable insights from both their education and experience. Courses are designed to teach you skills that offer competitive advantages, such as AI, web design, and marketing campaigns for startups. The program also instructs on how to be a better leader and, of course, integrates the Bible and spiritual components directly into the curriculum. I love how the case studies are not just relevant, but they are literally events happening right now.

My time here at Grace has been a blessing, although I have faced challenges along the way. The students, staff, and facility have encouraged me and prayed for me, and I've been able to learn a biblical approach in all my studies. I was reluctant at first to step into obtaining a degree in the online courses; however, after having joined, I'm glad I have because it's helped my relationship with God grow and my understanding of how to apply biblical principles and understandings to what God has called me to do.

In my experience at Grace Christian University, I was taught not only how to be successful in a human services career but also how to build Christ-like relationships and a community. It has helped me to better understand what it means to rely and trust in the Lord and to go forth into the community with the intention to bring glory to His kingdom, as well as to be the 'light of the world. I have grown as a person and a friend while making so many wonderful memories there that I will never forget.

This has been my first year at Grace Christian University, and I have loved it! I am a transfer student at Grace, and the whole experience has been fantastic! Transferring to Grace was a seamless process. I love the quick-paced classes and the intentionality of the professors and staff. Any time I have questions, I know I can ask them, and they will help me to the best of their ability. The staff is very intentional in reaching out, making sure I am doing okay, and seeing if I have any prayer requests. They also do a phenomenal job of encouraging me on the coursework and encouraging me to finish the course strong!

The business program doesn't only teach you about finance, entrepreneurship, and marketing but the program also equips you with leadership skills and help you become a Godly light to shine in a secular-prone field of study. My amazing professors are truly interested in my academic success and even my emotional health and wellbeing. I am more on fire for Jesus now because of the amazing community I've built, and the exciting career path I have in order to spread the good news of the Gospel!

There is a relational experience that you get here that just isn't found anywhere else, especially being in the Biblical Studies program. Pat McGillicuddy has played a crucial role in my life this last year, checking in on me and developing our relationship. There are people here who are willing, capable, and want to pour into you.
