A. J. Gordon

A. J. Gordon 175th Birthday Year

This coming 2010–2011 school year is the 175th anniversary of A. J. Gordon's birthday. There will be a series of events throughout the school year in commemoration and celebration of the founder of Gordon College.

SEVEN THEMES OF THE YEAR
The themes A. J. Gordon himself stood for and promoted throughout his life—education, evangelism, global missions, servant leadership, social justice, theology and worship—will be themes we celebrate all year, themes worth supporting and reflecting on. We will focus on one each month from October through April.
