Darrell is the Sports Management program director here at Grace, and he also is the staff coordinator at the GRC.
"I love the friendships that a small Christian school develops, they’re always challenging me and growing me spiritually. I also love the ability to get to know your professors and that they genuinely want to get to know me and see me succeed not only in school and my career, but my character as well."
"The community at Grace has given me the opportunity to grow in my understanding of God’s word, prayer, and devotion to Christ. I could not have asked for anything more."
"What I absolutely love about Grace is the encouraging and energizing community. Not only do the professors and students promote an atmosphere of spiritual growth, but every class also enables and invites you to dig into scripture and discover God’s truth."
"I definitely see the love of Christ through the professors and students on campus. My faith has been challenged and encouraged by the community here. I never could have imagined how God has used Grace College."
"My favorite part about Grace is the fellowship and atmosphere. The dorm life and opportunities presented here are what kept me going to Grace. The professors are engaged and take time to prepare each lesson. They have developed classes with quality content and real life applications and do a great job making it relevant and personal."
"At Grace you are surrounded by people who care about your academic success and furthering your relationship with God. The professors are intentional about keeping students involved and are interested in your academic success as well as your personal lives. "
"Grace has an amazing environment full of joyous people and is always pushing me to grow closer to God. God is first and foremost here which is fantastic!"
"I like Grace because of the overall atmosphere. The vast majority of students here are constantly striving to seek out and serve God. It is really encouraging and helps a lot to be surrounded by the body of Christ."
"I like Grace because of the community. It’s hard to walk past someone on this campus without receiving a warm smile and polite “Hello!” "
