Worship Arts Rehearsal Studios Project
Jerry Franks Memorial Project and Scholarship
Worship Arts Rehearsal Studios Project and Jerry Franks Endowed Scholarship.
In the Fall of 2016, Grace College reimagined its music program and launched a bachelor’s degree in worship arts with the goal of training students to serve in the local church as worship leaders and pastors. Grace’s worship arts program equips students to think like theologians, labor like artists, and shepherd like pastors.
The worship arts program resides in the lower level of the William Male Center and previously did not have dedicated rehearsal space. Thanks to the generosity of donors, alumni, and friends the newly renovated rehearsal studio project was completed and dedicated in October 2022. The rehearsal facility will be in use year-round for our current students as well as high school students attending summer worship camps.
In 2022, the Jerry Franks project expanded to include a newly established scholarship honoring Jerry’s legacy: the Jerry Franks Endowed Scholarship. This scholarship will be given annually to a Grace student pursuing a degree in worship arts. Nearly $60,000 has been raised so far towards the scholarship and we hope to invest further in the lives of students through your partnership and generosity!
Will you partner with us as we seek to invest further in the lives of our current and future students through an endowed scholarship is memory of Jerry Franks?
