In 1889 A.J. Conwell founded the Boston Missionary Training Institute to train women and men for Christian service. The school would be a place "of equipping men and women in practical religious work and furnishing them with a thoroughly Biblical training." Meanwhile, Russell Conwell was leading Temple University, a school whose mission was "to establish a progressive, orthodox theology, vigorously Biblical, yet in close touch with the modern culture." The two school merged in 1969 to become Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
Gordon-Conwell is dedicated to providing a biblically grounded, thoughtfully evangelical, and culturally relevant theological education, whether a student is able to attend a campus full-time, part-time, or needs their education delivered online at a distance. To accomplish this goal, Gordon-Conwell offers several online learning options, including online degree and certificate programs, online courses, and online programs and course for personal enrichment.
