Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary is an educational institution serving the Lord and His Church. Its mission is to prepare men and women for ministry at home and abroad. The seminary undertakes this task as a training partner with the Church so that what is learned on campus may be complemented by the spiritual nurture and the exercise of ministry available through the Church.

About

History

The roots of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary reach back over 100 years to two urban East Coast schools: the Boston Missionary Training Institute and the Temple Program in Philadelphia.The two schools shared much in common. It was the late 1800s and immigrants were pouring into their cities, only to discover little access to education. 

Education

Underpinning the education at both schools was a biblical foundation that still animates our seminary today: a common commitment to the authority of Scripture, the experience of the new birth in Christ, biblical orthodoxy centered in Christ and the Incarnation, and the great theme of missions.

Services

Housing services

There are four dormitories on campus – three for men and one for women. Dormitory rooms for single students include large and small single rooms and double rooms, which are shared by two students. All dormitory rooms come with 300 meal points, which can be used in the cafeteria for breakfast or lunch.

Library services

The library is designed to support the training of theological students from an evangelical perspective. Collecting areas include philosophy of religion, biblical studies, church history, theology, pastoral ministry, counseling, world missions, and evangelism. Special attention is given to the evangelical tradition, especially in New England.

Medical services

At Gordon-Conwell, all students registered for 6+ credits at both Hamilton and Boston must enroll in or waive out of the Student Health Plan each academic year. The Student Health Plan for the 2021-2022 Policy Year is a Blue Care Elect Preferred (PPO) Plan from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.
