After learning about the mission of Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), Pastor Chip Gordon, Director of Pastoral Care at Southeastern Regional Medical Center, was instantly impressed. He knew right away that he wanted to be a part of the team.
In addition to the opportunity he sees for ministry to make a difference with patients, caregivers and the staff, Pastor Gordon appreciates the CTCA focus on treating the whole person, rather than just a physical ailment.
Pastor Gordon earned a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, and a bachelor’s degree in speech communications from Auburn University. Throughout his more than 20 years of ministry experience, he has served as a Youth Pastor and Senior Pastor for various churches in North Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Most recently, he was the LifeCare Pastor at a church in Newnan, where his outreach was in counseling, hospital, funeral, grief and bereavement.
"My goal is to always be a good listener, as many times patients simply need to be heard," says Pastor Gordon
When working with patients, Pastor Gordon sees his role as helping them to understand that there is hope, and then guiding them to find that hope. He is also available to answer any questions that patients may have at any time concerning faith.
Passionate about the community, Pastor Gordon serves on the board of directors at Bridging the Gap, a community outreach program providing food and other resources to people in need. He is also an advisor to the Newnan Youth Council.
