Grandparent’s Day

I hope you will make a special effort to attend KCU’s annual Grandparent’s Day on Tuesday, October 15th. Grandparent’s Day is one of the most well-received events we host on campus each year and this year looks to be our best yet! You, as a grandparent, play such an important role in the lives of your grandchildren, and our hope is to help that engagement continue through the college years. The day is intentionally relaxed enough that it allows for you to accompany your grandchild to chapel, lunch, classes, or simply spend time on the campus your grandchild now calls home.

This year’s speaker for our special Grandparent’s Day chapel service is Terry Yoder, from the School of Missionary Aviation Technology in Ionia, Michigan. The School provides mission-driven students with FAA-certified training in aircraft maintenance and flight. Their specialty is preparing individuals to serve the Lord in mission aviation to do mission work in remote places around the world.

We encourage you to inform your grandchild of the schedule provided below and arrange for them to join you for Chapel Service at 9:30 am.  The schedule for Grandparent’s Day 2019 is as follows:

Prepared for the World

“KCU was more than a University, it was also a home for me. Professors didn’t just worry about my grades, but
they knew about my life, provided counsel, encouraged me, and pushed me to grow. I felt that my education for
ministry was amazing and really helped prepare me for ministry. A lot of my spiritual mentors have come out of
KCU and also some lifelong friendships with fellow students. KCU might not be the biggest school, but it has one
of the biggest hearts.”

Cady Wurtz, Class of 2017 Graduate School
