Online Christian Faith Reference

The application process to Gordon College requires each applicant to provide the admissions committee with a Christian Faith Reference completed by an individual who can speak with certainty about the applicant’s candidacy for admission. I am appreciative of your investment as the individual asked to provide this feedback.

Your response will be a significant part of the overall evaluation process for admission to Gordon College. The admissions committee is specifically looking for your insight into the applicant’s academic preparation and intellectual abilities.
