Office of the President

Grace Christian University is an incredible place. As president of Grace, I am excited to welcome you to experience a life-transforming education.

The Grace Christian University faculty, staff, and students are committed to being a growing community. By that we mean that each of us, starting with the president, realizes that we are still in process. We are not all that God designed and purposed us to be, nor are we content with that condition. Through competent instructors committed to academic excellence, and staff and administration committed to serving and growing, we believe Grace Christian University can be used by God to change your life!

The prevalent mentality of the day is intent on tolerance and policing certain words and activities deemed inappropriate or incorrect according to their own vacillating set of values. Grace Christian University believes that the eternal truths and values of the Word of God rightly divided are principles that pervade all areas of life and education. The Apostle Paul states, For in Him all things were created both in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together…so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything. (Colossians 1:16-18)

I would conclude from the above Scripture that Jesus Christ is to be the center of life, speech, values, service, education and social relationships. The world we live in and its present crises are evidence of what happens when education and life are no longer Christ-centered. There is no value-free education, it is all taught from a particular worldview.

I believe it is vital for our young men and women to be educated from a Christian worldview that prepares them for their careers, vocations, or further education with God’s values and purposes in view.

Grace Christian University is committed to preparing the leaders of tomorrow to be all that God wants them to be, educationally, socially, physically, and spiritually. If that’s your heart’s desire—Grace is the place for you!

President Kemper enjoys talking with students, alumni, donors, faculty and staff. If you would like to talk with President Kemper, or desire to have him visit your home or church, please contact us at 616-261-8573.
