Located in the Northern Massachusetts town of South Hamilton, Gordon - Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS) now exists as the result of several transformations over the years. The seminary can trace its roots back to two distinct Baptist institutions - Gordon Divinity School of Gordon College and the Conwell School of Theology of Temple University, which were founded in 1889 and 1888 respectively. Due to dwindling enrollment, the two schools decided to merge in 1969 with the support of financier J. Howard and evangelist Billy Graham.
GCTS' stated mission is "to prepare men and women for ministry at home and abroad. The seminary undertakes this task as a training partner with the Church so that what is learned on campus may be complemented by the spiritual nurture and the exercise of ministry available through the Church."
Those living in student housing or an off campus apartment have access to GCTS' distinguished religious and academic programs and fields of study. Students may pursue graduate level degrees such as a Master of Divinity, Masters of Arts (Academic), Master of Arts (Professional), Master of Theology, Doctor of Ministry and Doctor of Theology in Missiology among others.
Student living and university living at GCTS revolve around a variety of traditional campus and faith-based student organizations and activities. It's location places students within reach of the greater Boston area where they can visit such city landmarks and attractions as Fenway Park, the Samuel Adams Brewery, the TD Garden and Boston Common.
