Gordon has been the Coordinator for First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant for about 35 years.  During that time, the church raised just over $300,000 for Erie CROP, an average of over $9,000 per year.  Gordon was both a great fundraiser himself and very persuasive when it came to recruiting other Walkers.  Gordon, a son of missionaries, brought that same zeal to his work with CROP.
