Apologetic preaching is the theme of “Resilience in Ministry” our 2020 Biennial Preaching Conference hosted by Gordon-Conwell’s  Haddon W. Robinson Center for Preaching.

The National Preaching Conference happens on our Hamilton campus.

Nestled in the hills of Boston’s beautiful North Shore, our main campus and headquarters spans 118 acres of lush greenery, just minutes from the ocean. There is plenty of parking.
