About Gordon-Conwell

Gordon is fortunate to have one of the top 10 American evangelical seminaries located just two and a half miles from our campus, which is no coincidence. The “Gordon” name in Gordon-Conwell comes from Gordon Divinity School, which was Gordon College’s graduate seminary program that began in the early 1930s. Later, in 1969, the same year NASA put a man on the moon, Mr. J. Howard Pew, Dr. Harold John Ockenga and Rev. Billy Graham united two theological schools, Gordon Divinity School and Conwell School of Theology, because they saw a need for a strong, evangelical seminary in the Northeast. Since then, the seminary has brought in students like Xiong Yan, Scott and Kimberly Hahn and Tim Keller who are known for their incredible fortitude, faithfulness and leadership.  Now, the seminary’s main campus in Hamilton, MA, is home to over 800 students that represent 71 denominations and 41 countries.
