Message from the Hamilton Dean


Gordon-Conwell—Hamilton is the main campus of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary where we continue to uphold and nurture a strong theological tradition that began over a century ago in New England. Under the sustaining efforts of world-wide evangelist Billy Graham; Christian philanthropist, J. Howard Pew; and Park Street Church pastor, Harold John Ockenga, this distinguished evangelical seminary was established in one of the most historic parts of the country. An unwavering commitment to biblical authority, the centrality and pre-eminence of Jesus Christ, and to evangelistic witness in every sphere of life is the ongoing legacy and focus of what we do.

Gordon-Conwell is an academically rigorous seminary that strives for the highest possible standards in theological education. Our approach takes great care to highlight both serious study and spiritual growth. In classes populated by committed students and highly proficient professors, you will learn the biblical languages, and become conversant in the vocabulary of the great tradition that will make you a well-trained practitioner of the Word of God. 

The 118-acre campus is home to a vibrant Christian community. The residential model centers on extensive course offerings, a varied chapel program, mentored ministry and a strong set of co-curricular student forums. We are a global “community of learners” from 50 different countries and over 85 different denominations who are committed to the theological task. Our alumni serve in every state and in over 83 countries worldwide. Many of our graduates comment on the power of the face-to-face learning environment that brings together heart and mind, and on the strength derived from friends who are an important part of the journey. You will find your education at Gordon-Conwell one that will keep you “fad-proof” for a lifetime of ministry as you are challenged to, “think theologically, engage globally, and live biblically” wherever you are called.

Invest in yourself and the Kingdom and come study with us in beautiful New England.

Interim Dean, Hamilton Campus
