WILLIAM BARKER, M.Div., Ph.D
Director of the Center for Faith and Inquiry
“I am passionate about the Christian liberal arts,” says the Rev. Dr. William D. Barker ’98, newly appointed director of the Center for Faith and Inquiry (CFI) and the Gordon Honors Program. “Gordon College played an important role in fashioning that passion in my own life.”
Along with passion, Barker brings to the position an extensive depth and range of experiences—several of them international—as a scholar, teacher, pastor and entrepreneur in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors. In all of these settings he has sought to be “an agent of change for sustained institutional growth.”

She enjoys being outdoors, reading well-written books, and having meaningful conversations. She is currently living in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
