Upcoming Changes for Grow in Grace

Since the first day of Grow in Grace in 2010, Professor Rich Gurgel has filled the role of director. Under God’s grace, he has sought to lead Grow in Grace in its core mission of connecting pastors to gospel-focused resources for growth in all their callings and to gospel-filled encouragers to support that growth.

However, this October, Professor Gurgel accepted the call to serve as president of MLC. He fully steps into this new role in July of 2020. Stepping in as Grow in Grace’s new director will be Professor Thomas Kock.

Professor Kock has been working closely with Grow in Grace since 2015 as a member of the faculty’s Continuing Education Committee. Professor Kock has already contributed many fresh ideas and insights concerning WLS’s continuing education efforts. All of this has prepared him well to take over the leadership of Grow in Grace. We are looking forward to the direction that Professor Kock will lead the team beginning this fall. We pray for God’s blessings on his work!
