Gordon came to know Christ at age 13, the first in his family. After his mother also embraced the faith, the family made the move from a mainline church to Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, where they grew in the grace and knowledge of the Lord.
Gordon later attended Covenant College, where he met his wife, Karin, who has supported him through many years of education and the vicissitudes of life for nearly five decades. They have three adult children. Now a retired physician but still-performing musician, Gordon also enjoys woodworking.
Providence OPC was born in the Robsons’ living room and Gordon has served as treasurer from the beginning and as one of the two original ruling elders of the congregation.
