Christian Faith at Gordon: Worship, Grow and Give
Gordon is a vibrant community of believers, a place where Christian faith informs all aspects of the experience—from residence life to athletics, to academics and extracurricular involvements.

We want students think deeply and holistically about how their faith informs their influence in society—now and well into the future. As part of that process, both intentional programming and organic relationships propel students to grow in Christian character and deepen their trust in Jesus.

The Chapel Office hosts twice-weekly services where students engage in dynamic worship and hear from challenging speakers. Every February, DEEP FAITH week offers a time for the entire Gordon community to pause together for worship, prayer and reflection.

Students also participate in dozens of small groups, spiritual formation groups, and discipleship and mentoring relationships. On Sundays they host Catacombs, a late night worship service named for the ancient underground cemeteries where Christians safely celebrated the Eucharist during times of persecution. And every year, they spend thousands of hours giving back on a local and global scale.

Together, we’re learning how to lead Christ-centered lives in today’s world.
