The Grace Institute is a new ministry designed to develop people at Grace to better understand and apply God's Word to their everyday lives. The courses offered will be taught at a college level by both seminary professors and pastors/directors here at Grace.

Courses are offered in six-week sessions during fall, winter, and spring allowing those pursuing a certificate to finish the program in one year at a very reasonable cost. (Childcare is not available.)

** Participants are responsible for buying the required course texts before the first class session. Links are provided below.
