Spotlight Alum

“That year at Gordon-Conwell was one of the most memorable of our lives: a rich and rewarding time of learning and growing spiritually, and enjoying the first year of our marriage as empty nesters in New England! The classes I took, especially from Drs. John Jefferson Davis and Richard Lints, proved tremendously helpful in engaging students in many facets of ethical questions in our postmodern society.”
