Grace College and Seminary

Grace College and Seminary is an evangelical Christian community of higher education that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees while also applying biblical values in strengthening students' characters, sharpening students' competence, and preparing students for service. Grace College offers flexible online graduate degrees, on-campus and online degree completion programs, and a variety of seminary programs designed to challenge and shape students as they prepare for or continue to serve God through vocational ministry.

Why Grace?

For students looking for a place where professors see relationships as key to teaching, where innovation in the classroom is championed, and where students can further their degrees, then consider Grace College.

Grace boasts a qualified faculty full of dedicated mentor-professors -- men and women experienced in their fields, engaged in research, and committed to the personal and academic growth of their students. The 25:1 student-to-faculty member ratio at Grace ensures that no student goes unnoticed or forgotten, and the friendly and open campus atmosphere allows plenty of opportunity for students to engage further with their professors.

And as professors and faculty members invest academically in their students, they also intentionally and passionately prioritize biblical character development as a benchmark of their teachings. Modeling biblical character in and out of the classroom, Grace's professors aim to help students develop into strong, competent believers -- not just hearers of the Word, but doers. Students seeking after God.

What Grace Offers

Located in Winona Lake, IN, Grace provides opportunities for graduate students to earn fully accredited Master of Business Administration degrees, Master of Education degrees, or Master of Ministry Studies online degrees. Other areas of study, available on-campus or through hybrid-online programs, include clinical mental health counseling, interpersonal relations, and orthopedic regulatory and clinical affairs.


Besides teaching each class and program from a biblical perspective, Grace is dedicated to helping students accomplish their goals no matter what stage of life or current situation they may be in. Degrees offered online provide the flexibility adult students need to balance careers, families, social lives, and studies. Graduate and seminary students at Grace often find that between flexible class schedules and caring guidance from the dedicated faculty members, they often have greater opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in their field of study. From interning in local churches to shadowing local orthopedic business professionals, Grace's programs not only emphasize a practical approach to learning, but help students find their niches.

The Leading Edge

One of Grace's newer programs, the Master of Science in Orthopedic Regulatory and Clinical Affairs, is specially-designed to prepare students as professionals, ready to meet the needs of the growing and thriving orthopedic industry largely located in nearby Warsaw, Indiana. Developed in collaboration between Grace faculty members and OrthoWorx, Grace's program is the nation's only graduate program specifically designed by and for orthopedic regulatory and clinical affairs professionals.

75 years of Tradition

Of course, even with the incorporation of newer programs, Grace is fully dedicated to continuing development and growth in its longest-standing programs -- in this case, Grace Theological Seminary, which was originally established in 1937. Grace Theological Seminary offers a wide range of options, from a certificate in Biblical Studies to doctoral programs in ministry or missiology. Also available are Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies or Local Church Ministry degrees, and Master of Divinity degrees in Counseling, Chaplaincy, Exegetical Studies, Intercultural Studies, or Pastoral Studies.

Grace Theological Seminary is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Grace Seminary is also a member of the Association of Theological Schools (ATS).

Meeting Your Needs

Because of its dedication to providing an affordable and solid biblical education and its aim to help students reach their academic and career goals, Grace's financial aid team works closely with students to design an aid package that's best for their specific situations, including federal and state loans as well as school-based scholarships, even though Grace is already priced competitively with other Midwestern colleges and seminary programs.

With each of its programs designed to prepare students for professional work or further studies, Grace is determined to train students not only in their field of expertise, but in a biblical worldview, emphasizing the individual's role as a servant of God. Grace aims to send out professionals with the biblical character, sharp competence, and service-oriented mindsets necessary to set them apart as world-changes, whether in the foreign mission field, the classroom, or the conference room. With this in mind, Grace has carefully and prayerfully designed each course and each program to draw students closer to God and help them delve more completely into their area of study. Whether students are interested in teaching, counseling, business, or ministry, Grace College and Seminary is eager and prepared to help students meet all of their goals, propelling each student forward into a life of excellence and servitude.
