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 unusual 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.”
Victoria is an alumnus of Gordon College ('15). She manages and provides administrative support for the various events, programs, and grants for the Center. Victoria also serves the programming need of the JAF honors program. Before beginning her role at the Center, she served as the Orientation Coordinator for the New Student Orientation Program. Originally from Upstate New York, but fell in love with the North Shore during her years as a student. She is currently living in Beverly, Massachusetts.
