The Theology Matters initiative at Gordon College exposes high school students to opportunities for theological study, faith exploration and discipleship. Three individual but interrelated components—Equip, Compass and Summit—propel students to delve deeper into theological and vocation inquiry. These summer programs vary in length and focus, but all seek to foster growth and success throughout the critical years of teenage development.
Guided by Gordon College’s chaplain, director of discipleship and distinguished professors, high school students discover what it means to own their Christian faith in today’s world during this transformational week-long program.
Over the course of one month, high school students from around the globe backpack through the Adirondack Mountains of New York, study theology under renowned professors at Gordon College and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and travel abroad to serve and minister in a cross-cultural context.
During this three-week experience, an intentional small group of high school students complete biblical studies courses with Gordon faculty, embark on a wilderness expedition, and participate in local service projects.
Theology Matters programs are made possible through the generous support of the Lilly Foundation and individual donors dedicated to the development of future Christian leaders.
