by Collin Hall '21

Tom Haugen, Gordon’s chaplain for the past six years, has reportedly taken a full-time senior pastor position at El Montecito Presbyterian Church. Haugen begins work at El Montecito in Santa Barbara, California, on August 1st, 2019.

Haugen, in a press release on the church’s website, said: “Pastoring and investing in the lives of the students, staff and faculty at Gordon College has been a unique and rewarding ministry season. However, over the last few months, God has rekindled a desire to return to ministry within a local church context.”

Haugen took the position of Chaplain at Gordon in late 2013; he replaced the previous chaplain, Dr. Greg Carmer.

The Tartan has reached out to the college and Tom Haugen for comment and will update our story accordingly.
