Community Life

Gordon-Conwell seeks to sustain and nurture the entire person, preparing leaders for church and society who are equipped mentally, emotionally, spiritually and practically for ministry. Our students come from 50 countries and represent at least 85 denominations*. Authentic, multi-denominational community happens naturally as students live, study, and worship together. This community is supported by student-led groups, on-campus events, and initiatives like the Pierce Center for Disciple-Building. As you discern where God would have you prepare for ministry, our hope is that you will explore Gordon-Conwell as the place where you can enjoy a rich academic and spiritual seminary experience.

“The conversations I shared with friends in Pilgrim Hall or the dining hall, debating, clarifying, and learning complex theological issues or fine points of Greek or Hebrew or theological systems, were greatly impactful to me, as well as the relationships I still have with both students and professors as a result of those conversations today.”

Matt Gladd, M.Div. ’10

“There is such a strong community.  My faith was constantly being enriched through my friendships with other students and with the faculty.”

Mary March, MACO ’04
