As followers of Christ around the world sing hymns to honor his death and resurrection this Holy Week, Gordon alumna and staff member Jessica Vandervort ’20 offers a personal reflection on one particular hymn that is near and dear to many in the Gordon community.
About 130 years ago, Reverend Adoniram Judson (A. J.) Gordon sent a group of missionaries from his Boston Missionary Training Institute (today Gordon College) to Korea—a significant movement that would change the country forever.
In celebration of founder A. J. Gordon’s birthday, and in honor of all who have paved the way at Gordon over the years, the College hosted its annual Founder’s Weekend last week.
