Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (www.gordonconwell.edu) is a
multi-denominational evangelical Protestant graduate school, unique
with its broad array of over 2100 students and 200 faculty and
staff from 98 denominations and 55 countries. Our four campuses
include a residential model of education at South Hamilton, MA (our
main campus); an urban context offering classes in five languages
in downtown Boston, MA; adult educational models in both our
Charlotte, NC, campus and our offerings in Jacksonville, FL; and
cohort models involving students from around the world. The
clinical mental health counseling programs in South Hamilton and
Charlotte are CACREP-accredited.
Our mission is to prepare men and women for ministry at home and
abroad. Rooted in the gospel and God’s Word, the seminary seeks to
develop Christian leaders who are thoughtful, globally aware,
spiritually mature and ready for a broad array of ministries. While
being historically orthodox and evangelical, we seek to address the
issues of our times with both relevance to the culture and
faithfulness to Christ and God’s truthful Word.
