About Our Campus

Gordon-Conwell—Jacksonville was founded in 2006 at the impetus of a committee of alumni pastors in Jacksonville and other church leaders who wanted to bring our commitment to educational innovation, academic rigor and faithfulness to the Gospel to students already engaged full-time in ministry or the marketplace. Initially an extension site of the Charlotte campus, Gordon-Conwell—Jacksonville is now our fourth campus.

The Jacksonville location, which graduated its first class in 2010, offers two ATS-accredited degrees: the Master of Divinity and the Master of Arts in Christian Leadership. Its adult learning format, modeled on that of the Charlotte campus, emphasizes both hands-on training and in-class learning.

Classes are offered on weekends, evenings and in one-week intensives, and students can secure a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree entirely through weekend classes. Students also couple academic learning with practical ministry experience by partnering with a professor and a seasoned Christian leader through apprenticeship at a local church.
