Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary breaks ground on mission hall

May 16, 2014 

Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary’s Charlotte campus broke ground Friday on the David M. Rogers Hall of Mission.

The new wing at the evangelical Christian school will have classrooms and an assembly hall, which will be equipped to allow interaction with mission leaders around the world.

Five of the classrooms will have continent-themed exhibits with artifacts and special collections.

Speaking at the ceremony were Gordon-Conwell president Dennis Hollinger and Tim Laniak, dean of the Charlotte campus.

Gordon-Conwell was created in 1969 with the merger of two schools, a union that Charlotte-born evangelist Billy Graham helped facilitate. The seminary now has four campuses. Besides the one in south Charlotte, the others are in Roxbury, Mass., near Boston; Jacksonville, Fla.; and the main campus in South Hamilton, Mass. Tim Funk
