Grandparent’s Day

I hope you will make a special effort to attend KCU’s annual Grandparent’s Day on Thursday, October 18th.  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 David Welsh.  He leads the dynamic Franklin Christian Church in Nashville, TN.  David is a KCU alumnus (1981) who is a truly gifted communicator.  You will be blessed by David and will come away with a sense of why chapel is such an important part of the KCU experience.

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 2018 is as follows:

Opportunity to Use My Abilities for God

“At KCU I was able to learn under the guidance of the best ministry professors and administrators. KCU gave me
my first opportunity to use my abilities for God. KCU gave me an opportunity to excel athletically, artistically, and
academically. But most of all, when I look back on my time at KCU, I will remember the people. I will remember the
smiles, I will remember the laughs my friends and I shared. KCU is a family and one I am very proud to be in.”

Cody Sabol, Class of 2017
