Ordained Women Leading and Serving (OWLS)

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 currently preparing for ministry. The OWLS group is particularly for Gordon-Conwell alumnae who were in the MDiv 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 several times each year via Zoom for discussion and fellowship, and offers current female students and recent graduates a variety of resources and mentoring as participants’ time allows.

Alumni Admissions Ambassadors

Alumni Admissions Ambassadors are Gordon-Conwell alumni who partner in various ways with the seminary’s Admissions Department and the Office of Alumni Engagement. Ambassadors may:

  • Cheer on and encourage students who are beginning their journey with Gordon-Conwell. This might be via a note, a phone call, or simply prayer
  • Connect with potential students to answer questions about your time at Gordon-Conwell
  • Organize and implement a simple recruiting event in your geographic area
  • Host a watch party for potential students to view a Dean’s Forum or other event followed by discussion
  • Serve on an alumni panel, either in-person or online, for various admissions events
  • Connect our admissions staff with individuals you know who may be interested in pursuing a seminary education

Thriving in Ministry

Ministry in New England in the 21st century is tough. Decline, disillusionment, distrust, and discouragement all impact our ability to lead congregations. Thriving In Ministry (TIM) in New England exists to address these issues and to equip pastors and congregational leaders. This work is done primarily through pastoral cohorts and a set of resources we offer to pastor for encouragement and perspective in ministry.

Women's Council

The Women’s Council provides scholarships for students, opportunities for fellowship among women who share an interest in the seminary, and special projects that serve the seminary. Their events focus on speakers from the Gordon-Conwell community, students who benefit from the Women’s Council Scholarship Fund, with special music and a luncheon.
