Christian Education Programs for Adults
Gordon specializes in short-term educational events for adults. They include study courses, lecture series, workshops, and retreats. In all he helps people with no theological education to access the riches available to them in what he regards as the spacious faith tradition of Christianity.
He operates on the belief that a solid Christian education program for adults is the foundation for a church’s wider educational ministry. He believes this for several reasons:
- Good educational programs enable adults who dropped their religious education with confirmation or high school graduation an opportunity to grow into a more mature faith. This gives them greater wisdom in living and in ministry.
- Good educational programs help correct misperceptions of what Christianity is all about. These misperceptions often result from inadequate education or bad experiences in the church as youth.
- Good educational programs expose adults to the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition. By the Christian tradition, Gordon means not just Bible and doctrine, but also worship practices, ethics, and spiritual disciplines–everything that composes what Gordon calls the Christian Way of Life.
- Good educational programs prepare adults to better model the faith for children and young people in the church. Educated believers best transmit the faith onto future generations.
