Missionaries-in-Training Visit Agricultural Center

Training missionaries is the primary focus of the Intercultural Studies Department. Students are being trained to serve in traditional foreign mission settings as well as being trained to serve in intercultural settings within businesses, church ministries, community development and education.

“Our focus on developing the next generation of evangelical leaders on the mission field has not changed since my days as a student at Grace,” said Dr. Mike Schmidt, Intercultural Studies Department Chair. “My goal is to provide opportunities to prepare students for the ministry they will be doing domestically and internationally as they serve as missionaries.”

During a recent field trip, Intercultural Studies students and faculty visited Jonathan Dodd and learned about his ministry, Keipos. This ministry focuses on a gospel-centered perspective as it trains missionaries heading to areas with alternative technologies who will be working with people groups who do not have secure or high-nutrition food sources. Dodd has developed an agricultural center south of Omaha where he trains, educates and disciples people in gospel-centered practices related to hospitality, food and farming.

“We want our Intercultural Studies students to learn through relevant studies, relationships, and real-life experiences,” said Dr. Schmidt. “By connecting them with missionaries in our community, they can learn the skills they need to spread the Gospel in the urban and rural areas around the globe.”

Students Challenged During Annual Bible Conference

During the annual Bible Conference, students were challenged to think about how multi-ethnic relationships and cultural conflicts impact ministries and their ability to reach others with the Gospel.

“The Bible Conference is an important component of a Grace University education,” said Dr. Gary Nebeker, Vice President of Christian Formation and Student Services. “We want our students to have a distinctly Christian worldview about the role of race and culture in ministry.”

Featured speakers at the event were Dr. Mark DeYmaz and Dr. Harry Li from Little Rock, Arkansas. Dr. DeYmaz is the founding pastor of the Mosaic Church of Central Arkansas, multi-ethnic and economically diverse church where people from more than 30 nations serve and worship God together. Dr. Li is the Campus Pastor and a Teaching Pastor of The Mosaic Church of Little Rock, where he has been shepherding a very unique and diverse body of believers for more than 12 years.

Workshops and break-out sessions at the Bible Conference explored relevant topics such as how to transform the Christian community, if there a mandate to have a multi-ethnic church, and the power of the Gospel to overcome cultural barriers.

“We are training all of our students to be missionaries,” said Dr. Nebeker. “It is exciting to have seasoned servants come to campus and give our students insight into how God can use their skills for His glory.”

Donor Blesses Music Department

MarimbaGrace University has seen God’s miraculous blessing as we have worked to expand opportunities for our music students.

One of our most pressing issues is being able to train musicians and music educators on the type of instruments they will be using professionally. Our students were in need of a 5-octave marimba so they could play today’s repertoire of percussion arrangements.

For the past 2.5 years, many faithful donors have helped us raise $7,500 to purchase a new marimba. But when we found ourselves needing to order the marimba, we were $5,000 short.

Then God provided a miracle! Continue reading
