Gordon was born in Tokyo, Japan, and spent the first 15 years of his life in that country, with a few interludes back in the U.S. Over the years, he's lived in three Canadian provinces and six U.S. states. He and his wife Wendy Kroeker (a Manitoba native) moved to Winnipeg in 1988, and have not found greener pastures elsewhere. He has been at CMBC/CMU since 1990.

He has a diploma in biblical studies from Columbia Bible College (BC), a BA in Social Work from Tabor College (KS), an MA in Biblical Studies from the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary (CA), an MA in Cultural Anthropology from Western Washington University and a Ph.D. from Princeton Theological Seminary (NJ).

A highlight in the past few years has been two terms of service in the Philippines as Visiting Professor at the Silliman University Divinity School (1996-98, 2002-04), under the auspices of Mennonite Central Committee.

In spare time, Gordon enjoys reading, traveling, hiking and canoeing, theatre, and tinkering around in his 100-year old house.
