Grace University has cooperative programs in cities around the world. This semester Kristin Epp is studying in Spain, and Dr. Mike Schmidt was able to chat with her briefly via Skype to talk about her learning and experiences there.

Janelle Applegarth and Jennifer Cooper led an effort to hear words of encouragement and challenge from a few of the faculty at Grace University. Their idea, developed from a Bible study, was to imagine if faculty were to write a letter to the student body in the way the early apostles and leaders wrote letters to groups of disciples in the first century. This was the result.
