In Search of Church

Area churches recently came to campus for Gordon’s annual Church Fair.
Greg Carmer, dean of chapel, notes that Gordon students come from a broad range of church backgrounds; the largest percentage is nondenominational. The diversity, he says, “poses a challenge in that there are often traditions deeply embedded but unacknowledged (how Scripture is used, how services are ordered, even the meaning of corporate worship and the purpose of Sunday morning gatherings). But, it seems, some of the nondenominational churches are also doing a good deal to explore, utilize and reinvest with meaning, some ancient worship practices."
