This year we celebrated Grace Christian University’s 75th Anniversary! We honored three remarkable Grace Alumni. Gretchen Johnson, Director of Nursing at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, where she founded the Mother and Baby Porgam, Tommee Proffitt, Producer, Songwriter, and Recording Artist, and Al (and Jeannie) Wolf, long time dedicated, active and supporting partner(s) with Grace Christian University. The honorees all live out the Grace Christian University Mission Statement: Graduating Godly Individuals prepared to serve Christ in Church and Society.
In addition to the annual homecoming banquet and alumni games we started some new traditions. Saturday started off with our first annual 5K Run/Walk, followed by a Kids 1K Run. For lunch, alumni and friends met for our first annual Chili Cook-off. There were five different Chilis cooked by alumni! Some sweet, some spicey, and all delicious.
We would love for you to join us next year and throughout the year for alumni events. If you have Facebook, please join our group “Alumni of Grace Christian University.” If you’ve moved, started a new job, married, had a baby or any other exciting life news, please let us know. We love to celebrate and rejoice with you!
