Here Grace president Dr. Ron Manahan is shown addressing the gathered graduates, families, and friends. The event was held in the Orthopaedic Capital Center.
A special tribute was paid to Jeremy Mohr, the member of the college’s 2011 class who was critically injured in an accident last fall. Mohr is currently at a rehabilitation center in Atlanta, but his father was in attendance and Jeremy participated in the graduation ceremonies by Skype.
Among those receiving the Doctor of Ministry degree was Daniel White, pastor of the York, Penn., Grace Brethren Church. Dr. White’s dissertation was entitled “Ministry Issues that must be Addressed and Resolved With Workable Solutions at the Grace Brethren Church of York, PA, so That it can Surpass the Pareto Principle and be a More Fully Equipped Church Body to Handle Caregiving for its Own and Those Whom God Will Bring.”
Manahan also announced the opening of the Henry and Frances Weber School at Grace College, a new, unique two-year program that will begin in Fort Wayne and Indianapolis in the fall. Weber, who has been a trustee of Grace Schools, was present and was honored for his $1 million naming gift. His wife, Frances, went to be with the Lord earlier this year.
