“To learn more about the Grace Christian University track & field program, check out this interview with Head Coach Jason Schalk:”

—Coach Jason Schalk
Men's Track Academic Minimums
Oct 12, 2018

“As the head coach at Grace Bible College, I'm looking for athletes who are hard working, polite, good students, and committed to competing in cross country and/or track & field. In my first year as head coach, our men's cross country team made school history by not only qualifying as a team for the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) National Championship, but then by placing 3rd in the country at the meet (again, making school history). Our top placing female at Nationals earned All-American honors and, it is my intention, to build both the men's and women's teams to be contending for a NCCAA national championship. We are also starting our first ever track and field team at Grace in the Spring of 2017. We are looking for both men and women in all events to establish a winning tradition of cross country and track & field at Grace Bible College. As a coach, my strengths lie in the relationships I build with my athletes and the ability I have to challenge you to be better, not only in running or field events, but also in the classroom and society. I believe in giving thanks for the blessings bestowed upon us, doing good things for others, treating your teammates like family, working hard every day for practice, and having fun. Although we cannot offer any athletic scholarships at this time, we do have many academic scholarships and awards that can be earned. In addition to that, I can promise you that each year I intend for us to compete for team and individual NCCAA national championships and that I can guarantee you my time, passion, and attention to you as an individual regardless of your times, distances, and abilities. We are a small school, located in Grand Rapids, MI. Grace Bible College seeks to serve the greater needs of church and society by offering a number of undergraduate degrees in our traditional program. We offer four year degrees in ministry, worship arts, human services, sports management, teacher education, exercise science, family studies, pre-professional studies (medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, other related fields), history, accounting, business, management, and marketing. Because our campus is small, we have an awesome, close-knit school community. I encourage you to check out our Facebook page ("Grace Bible College Cross Country and Track & Field"), Twitter page ("@GBCcrosscountry), and website ( to learn more about what it's like to be a member of our team and to learn more about me as a coach. Feel free to contact me at any time with any questions.”
