As chair, Sellers teaches and mentors students, hires and supervises adjunct instructors, manages curriculum, and identifies ways to grow the program. He also helps develop marketing, recruiting and retention strategies while cultivating partnerships that benefit students and the community at large.

Experience

Sellers holds a Master of Arts in Business Administration with focuses in leadership, organizational behavior and ethics. His teaching experience includes positions at George Fox University, Eastern Oregon University, Clark College and Mount Hood Community College. He has owned and operated his own consulting business for more than 14 years.

He has a broad background spanning business, academia and nonprofit environments. He has also created, developed and grown several businesses. In each business, Sellers was responsible for all aspects of strategy, finance, sales, marketing, personnel, operations and internal controls. 

Sellers is committed to community service. He has spent more than 26 years volunteering at various nonprofits, including the American Red Cross, St. Benedict’s Hospital and Big Brothers Big Sisters. He also uses his consulting business to provide free personal finance training for low- and middle-income families. “My goal is to assist families in becoming debt free and meeting future financial goals,” he said.

Vision

“I enjoy challenge, and I’m excited to build something at MU,” he said. “I want to develop a world-class program that prepares students to go into the real world and make connections with people that reflect the gospel.”

During his time at Multnomah, Sellers plans to change the church's often skewed perception of Christian business leaders. “You don't have to be a pastor or a missionary to serve God well; you can be salt and light in the business world too,” he said. “It's not a second-class calling. Every time our business majors graduate, I want them to have the chops to hit the road.”
