About Me

After learning about the mission of City of Hope, Pastor Chip Gordon, Director of Pastoral Care at City of Hope Atlanta, 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, Rev. Gordon appreciates the City of Hope focus on treating the whole person, rather than just a physical ailment.

Rev. 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 25 years of ministry experience, he has served as a Youth Pastor and Senior Pastor for various churches in North Carolina, Alabama and Georgia.

"My goal is to always be a good listener, as many times patients simply need to be heard," says Rev. Gordon. When working with patients, he sees his role as helping them to understand there is hope, and then guiding them to find that hope. He is also available to answer any questions patients may have concerning faith.

Passionate about the community, Pastor Gordon has served on the board of directors at Bridging the Gap, a community outreach program providing food and other resources to people in need. He has also served as an adviser to the Newnan Youth Council, Board of Directors for the Newnan Kiwanis Club, and as a Director on the Newnan/Coweta Board of Realtors. Pastor Gordon is very active in SonRise Baptist Church where he serves as an Elder.

Born and raised in Newnan, Pastor Gordon met his wife, Jo Ellen, at Auburn University. She is currently a mathematics teacher at Newnan High School. Chip and Jo Ellen have two daughters.

Patient ratings
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
