In addition to our regularly scheduled chapel services, the chapel program hosts special events throughout the year to help faculty, staff and students further engage in cooperate worship. A few of these events are listed below.
On Gordon's annual Day of Prayer every fall—students, faculty and staff are given the chance to pray in a variety of Christian traditions and venues. Classes are canceled for the day and from the early morning until late night, different prayer-centered events are offered. Examples include: hymn-singing, Anglican Morning Prayers, resident hall prayer, Vespers, cooperate worship and creative prayer. Many of these prayer events are facilitated by student leaders and capture the global issues that are close to the heart of our community.
DEEP FAITH is a spiritual emphasis week that takes place each spring semester at Gordon. Last year's speaker was Andy Crouch, executive editor of Christianity Today. This year's keynote speaker will be Ken Shigematsu, author of God in My Everything.
Missions Week at Gordon College is an annual event that highlights the college's strong history of global missions. The week includes two chapel services, three evening dialogue sessions and daily access to missions representatives from various mission boards. The guest speaker for the 2014 Missions Week was Prashan DeVisser (Class of 2008), President of Sri Lanka Unites, a youth movement for hope and reconciliation.
