Why I chose Multnomah
I have been at a variety colleges and universities over the course of my career and one thing I've figured out is that I don't want to work for a generic school. Multnomah is far from generic . . . in fact, I don't think there's another university like MU in the entire western United States. I was very attracted to Multnomah's outstanding reputation: The depth and breadth of our academic offerings and the emphasis on biblical scholarship for all students is simply unparalleled.
Favorite Bible passage
Probably Romans chapter 5. Verses 7 and 8 jump out at me: "Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners."
Favorite thing about Portland
I love seeing Mt. Hood over the Columbia River. I also like the diversity of the city and the individuality of how people express themselves in how they dress, their hairstyles, what they eat, types of activities and more.
Wow . . . I'm not a candy fanatic but I tend to like things that combine salty-n-sweet, like peanut M&Ms, Boston Baked Beans or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
States I've lived in
Michigan, California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois.
Definitely "What's So Amazing about Grace?" by Philip Yancey. I also really like "The Good Earth" by Pearl Buck and "The Rainmaker" by John Grisham.
