Education in the Christian liberal arts tradition is interested not only in academic competence but also in spiritual formation. The Chapel Office at Gordon College provides various programs to support students in their spiritual growth and encourage full-life discipleship to Jesus. This includes corporate worship services, spiritual-life groups, mentoring relationships, pastoral counseling and service-learning and mission trips.
Gordon College strives to deliberately cultivate an explicitly Christian community of scholars:
All members of our community—students, faculty, staff and administrators—are required to read a Statement of Faith, and abide by a Life and Conduct Statement. These documents guide and inspire the development of our faithful community within a complex world.
As a part of the application process, students are required to provide a faith testimony for enrollment.
