A Word from Dr. Robert Cooley

We all are living in a time of almost breathtaking change in a shrinking world. Now is the time for Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary to make a bold restatement of our vision. Our mission remains the same: a passionate commitment to the highest levels of theological scholarship, a thoughtful Evangelicalism, and a focused effort to serve the Church with excellence and distinction. At the same time, our vision for this mission fulfillment requires new efforts to educate and to pursue transformational learning, to create new spaces for community-building activity, and to provide new forms of learning resources through digital technology and global partnerships.

Now is the time to EXPAND THE BOUNDARIES in theological education at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary-Charlotte. The following pages will describe an amazing and innovative plan for your investment and generous participation. It is my personal joy to support President Dennis Hollinger, Dean Timothy Laniak, the faculty and the board of trustees in their vision to combine excellence in theological education with a fresh commitment to leadership development, spiritual formation and vital skills for ministry in diverse and challenging contexts. 

I invite you to share our passion, our commitment and our vision for an expanded building to meet the needs of a growing student population and its partnerships with churches and missions organizations. Now is the time to EXPAND THE BOUNDARIES. 

Robert E. Cooley, Ph. D.
President Emeritus
Chairman, Charlotte Building Campaign
