Paul A. Gordon (1930–2009) was a Seventh-day Adventist. He was director of the Ellen G. White Estate from 1990 to 1995.[1]


A graduate of what is now Walla Walla University in College Place, Washington, Gordon began his work for the Seventh-day Adventist Church with pastoral ministry in Oregon and Washington state, as well as service as a Bible teacher at both Upper Columbia Academy and Milo Adventist Academy.

He served in the White Estate as five years as director of the organization, which safeguards and promotes the writings and ministry of Ellen G. White, a pioneering founder of the movement. He traveled to more than 100 countries in his work with the White Estate, retiring in 1995.

In 1981, Gordon was a cofounder of the Adventist Heritage Ministry, and led out in the acquisition of the William Miller home in 1984. He was the primary compiler for four morning devotional books; and authored numerous articles for church periodicals including Adventist Review. His two-part 1980 Review article, “The Right to Vote – Shall I Exercise It?” were subjects which are still cited as important articles.
