Offices and Classrooms:
The central offices and classrooms are located in the "South End" area of downtown Boston—just a few blocks away from where Gordon College originated in 1889. Gordon IN Boston partners with the Emmanuel Gospel Center, a national organizational model of support services, research and para-church ministry incubation for the city of Boston. In addition to offering office, classroom, library and lounge space, EGC's staff of over 30 professionals help to mentor students, supervise internships and lecture as special guests in the courses.
The city of Boston is the fourth oldest (1630) and best known of the Puritan cities of the 17th century’s “great migration.” The capital of Massachusetts, it was once described as the “Athens of America” and has earned its nickname as “the Hub.” In addition to its rich American history spanning nearly four centuries, over 250,000 students now annually call Boston home. Ninety-four colleges and universities are located in Massachusetts—many of them in Boston—including the nation’s oldest (Harvard) and some of the youngest (Northeastern). Thousands of tourists visit Boston every year to take advantage of the rich history of the area, walk the "freedom trail," run the marathon, sing with the Boston Pops Orchestra on the 4th of July, rub the foot on John Harvard's statue, and eat the world's best seafood.
But what is less apparent about Boston is the rich diversity of its 20-plus distinct neighborhoods, the accessibility of the city's transportation system, the mix of poverty and riches and the vibrant growth of the church-particularly in the small, ethnic storefront gatherings and the new emerging city-center intentional communities.
