We’ve been having email problems yesterday and today, but we’ve corrected the problem and at this point students are getting in with a simple password reset. To change your password you can either:
1. Change it on your own at the https://pw.gbcol.edu site (use the “new” password we sent to you a couple weeks ago as the “old” password for purposes of this change, or
2. Email Becky Karsten at email@example.com and she will be able to get you a new password and get you up and running again.
ATTENTION GBC STUDENTS:
On July 11th we will be changing your student email password as we move to a new username/password system. This new system is being setup as part of an ongoing plan to simplify and consolidate the number of passwords you as a student need to keep track of. This new login system will apply to:
- Email (accessed at http://mail.online.gbcol.edu/)
- Wireless Network activation
- The Student Portal (accessed at https://student.gbcol.edu/)
Actual usernames and email addresses will not change. This will not affect Moodle access.
Your “new” email password is the same password you have used to login and activate your wireless devices on the campus network.
This password can be changed at https://pw.gbcol.edu/. All passwords need to:
- Be at least 8 characters in length
- Contain at least one small letter
- Contain at least one capital letter
- Contain at least one number
If have problems accessing your email account after July 11 and need your password reset, please contact Becky Karsten at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any other questions regarding these changes, please email me at email@example.com.
GBC ladies took the opportunity Saturday afternoon to enjoy a time of ‘craftiness.’ Ladies had two options of crafts: first, make a silk flower hair piece (pictured below!); second, make a scarf/necklace with an old t-shirt. For non-crafty people, these craft options are ideal because they are really as simple as can be! It was a nice afternoon to simply enjoy fellowship with one another and be ‘crafty’ together.
Grace Bible College students are back in full swing for the Spring semester! Classes started on Monday, January 16th and it is good to have everyone around on campus. The first week of classes saw small groups back together, an open house in the new Student Commons (where we met multiple new faculty and staff!), the chapel used for a day-long training seminar for Wyoming Police Department on Thursday, and a worshipful Friday chapel. It is indeed good to have students back on campus and we anticipate a fantastic semester!
GBC Ladies know how to have a good time. The latest included a day of pampering (including manicures, pedicures, facials, makeup and hair) while being surrounded by Christmas lights, chocolate and the classic Hello, Dolly movie. Once the ladies were glammed up and ready to go, the group headed to The Melting Pot on the north side of Grand Rapids. Here the group enjoyed dessert fine-dining style: chocolate fondue! GBC Ladies definitely know how to have a good time!

Josh Segalla recently led a Life Series week on the topic of Poverty. Students participated in a 30 Hour Famine, times of prayer, food drive and pop can drive and had a Dining to Donate event in cooperation with Applebee’s…and all of the proceeds from these events will be given directly to the famine that is affecting the horn of Africa. It was a great week to raise awareness of poverty in the world…and though our part is small, it is one that will not be forgotten by the GBC students who participated.
Saturday, November 12th was a morning of great joy on the campus of GBC as women from local churches came to meet with students they would be mentoring for the year. Heart2Heart Mentoring is a student-run program that provides female students with the option of being mentored by women from local churches who have a desire to invest in young women’s lives. Each year the program continues to grow, and this year was no exception. We have 15 mentors and 20 students participating this year (which has grown from 4 mentors and 6 students when it first began!). We are thankful for these women who are so willingly giving of their time to invest in GBC students!
Halloween has come and gone…but here at Grace Bible College, we are praising God for yet another great outreach event on Halloween night! About 30-35 GBC students enjoyed the opportunity to serve our immediate neighborhood by running games, painting faces, making bracelets and simply engaging with those that attended. This year we estimate there were over 200 people from our surrounding neighborhood who enjoyed the festivities and we thank God for the opportunity we had that night to serve the many kids and their parents who came through our doors.
