Gordon Ferguson served as an evangelist and elder in the Boston Church of Christ.
After graduating in 1965 from Northwestern State University in Louisiana, Gordon taught school for a number of years. He gradually became interested in the ministry and attended the Preston Road School of Preaching in Dallas, graduating in 1972. He later received an M.A. in New Testament from the Harding Graduate School of Religion in Memphis, Tennessee. He served in various congregations in Vancouver, Washington; Garland, Texas; Tacoma, Washington and San Diego, California. During his tenure with the church in Garland, he was also an instructor at the Preston Road School of Preaching. In 1987 after studying the Bible, both Gordon and his wife were baptized into Christ as disciples. In 1989, this same humility toward God's Word allowed the Holy Spirit to raise Gordon up as an elder and his wife Theresa as a women's counselor.
Gordon was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. He married his high school sweetheart, Theresa, and they have two children. Brian, the oldest, served as an intern with the Oahu Church of Christ, and their daughter Renee was a nanny for a ministry family in the London Church of Christ.
