Multnomah alumni and students have the best stories. So good, in fact, that we often decide to put them in a video to encourage others to keep up their work and ministries and maybe even consider supporting the next generation of MU alum.

Don’t you folks ever read your Bibles?

Bob and Cindi Norsworthy - BS 1983, Wives Certificate 1983

That phrase, and the passion for personal engagement with the Word of God that evoked the challenge, is indelibly etched in a winsome way, in the heart and mind of every alum that ever experienced the life of Dr. John G. Mitchell.
