Annual Church Fair Connection

Certificate Programs


  • In February 2024 we piloted a coaching training on campus to equip faculty and staff to engage in faith conversations with rising generations. Our hope is to extend this to local faith leaders in our second round of training.

Future certificates currently in development 

  • Facilitation 
  • Leading change in congregations 
  • Theology and dialogue 


Dokes Programs

One of the offerings within the Department of Biblical Studies and Christian Ministries is the Dokes Ministry Scholars program. This accelerated pastoral degree program is the perfect option for high-achieving students who feel the call to full-time ministry or theological study. After five years in this dual-degree program, students will receive a Bachelor of Arts in either biblical studies or Christian ministries from Gordon College and a Master of Divinity or Master of Arts from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. While these students will graduate with a well-rounded seminary experience, we recognize the need for hands-on ministry education. We aim to place these graduates in ministries where they can apply their education to on-the-ground work. We would love to connect our students with opportunities in your ministry.
