Access2020 – Postponed

Grace College & Seminary and Winona Lake, Indiana

Christ has been the center of Grace College & Seminary from the day we were founded in 1937. We follow His example of grace in all things. The “Ways of Grace” leads us to explore powerful academics, create meaningful careers, and launch purposeful lives. Because grace is not just a set of beliefs. It’s belief set into motion.

Located in historic Winona Lake, IN, our campus is a five-minute walk from the beautiful lake. Winona Lake is also home to miles of biking/running trails, an assortment of artisan shops and local eateries. Come visit our corner of the world…adventure awaits!

Lots of Cohorts and a Few Workshops

We like to think of our cohorts as “content with contacts.” These peer-learning experiences will give you valuable ideas for ministry AND contact information of other ministry leaders you can contact for advice.

Workshops feature some of our best teachers that apply the Bible to our ministries and lives.

Celebrations, Ministry Meals and Grace Kids

Each day includes Celebrations where we worship in song and in the challenge of the Word. All our celebrations will be held in the beautiful Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center on Grace’s campus.

Ministry meals are held each day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. These meals are sponsored by one of our partnering ministries and will stretch your vision of what God is doing around the world.

Grace Kids is for infants through sixth grade. Your children will receive quality care and teaching while having lots of fun throughout the day.

Access2020 COHORTS

What are Cohorts?

Cohorts are peer learning groups focused around various areas of ministries. Participants will have lots of time to talk about what is working, what is not, ask questions, discuss best practices and even work through issues together.

People who are registered for Access2020 can select three cohorts (one each day).

  • Tuesday will focus on “The Gift of Living Words”
  • Wednesday will be “How the Bible Empowers Us”
  • Thursday will be about “Sharing Living Words.

We will also offer a few workshops designed for larger groups and taught by an instructor.
