The Alumni Engagement team is excited to begin building more opportunities for alumni to connect with one another, and to use your skills and experience to serve each other, current students, and the seminary. This page will keep growing!
Below are a few things we already have in place. Please share any ideas you have, or other ways you might like to connect or serve, by using this “Ideas” button. We can’t wait to connect with you!
Alumni Admissions Ambassadors are Gordon-Conwell alumni who partner in various ways with the seminary’s Admissions Department and the Office of Alumni Engagement. There are three different groups of Admissions Ambassadors, although some choose to participate in more than one role.
• Encouragement Ambassadors cheer on and encourage students who are beginning their journey with Gordon-Conwell. Ambassadors in this role pray for and encourage admitted students during their discernment process and, if the students desire it, newly enrolled students throughout their seminary years.
• Experience Ambassadors connect with potential students to answer questions about their time at Gordon-Conwell. This role involves several different types of interactions with prospective students, all drawing on the Ambassador’s personal experience with the seminary.
• Recruiting Ambassadors organize and implement one or two recruiting events each year that take advantage of their physical locations, organizational connections and/or personal or professional relationships to introduce potential students to Gordon-Conwell.
Women who are serving as pastors, chaplains, and in other ministry roles have a unique set of gifts, challenges and experiences—and many of these are shared by female students who are currently preparing for ministry. The OWLS group is still in its formative stage, but is particularly for Gordon-Conwell alumnae who were in the M.Div. program as students, or who graduated with other degrees but serve or served in ordained or credentialed ministries of any kind. We hold these criteria loosely, though, so if you think this group is a fit for you it probably is! The group meets via Zoom for fellowship and will soon begin offering current female students and recent graduates a variety of resources and mentoring as participants’ time allows.
