Ministry, Bible & Theology

Make a difference for Christ

Imagine the exponential impact that’s possible when we are united in Christ rather than divided by our differences. At Gordon we recognize your passion and potential for ministry and are here to equip you with what you need to participate in God’s work in our complex world. We layer scholarship with practical skills and provide space to learn from others, so you can understand the diversity of Christianity and connect it with service to God and neighbor.

Learn from the Bible and Christians of the past as well as the ones pulling up chairs next to you. Within Gordon’s close community professors and peers encourage, challenge and support one another. From the very beginning of your experience, you’ll work with a personal advisor to explore your calling and find your niche.

At Gordon learning happens by doing. You might choose to travel to the Holy Land on the Israel Seminar, participate in the Bible Translation Program or engage in service opportunities both locally and abroad. In the process you’ll stretch your mind and heart to uncover a new richness to your faith and your ability to lead impactful ministries with compassion and generosity.

“Gordon was where I met lifelong friends. Those have been the friends that supported us as missionaries, prayed for us and supported us. They've stayed with me.”
