A Challenge Of Intercessory Prayer

Alumni Leadership Council President David Manning - BSBE '88

New Student Orientation Video

Welcome to the Team, Sarah!

Welcome to the Team, Sarah!

Introduction by Matthew Forsythe (B.S. '05)

As Multnomah’s Donor Relations Officer, I have enjoyed getting to know the students who are employed part time in the Advancement Department. Two years ago, I had the privilege of meeting a young woman named Sarah Garrison. Recently, she and I were able to catch up and reflect on the journey that God has taken her on in the last six months. Read the rest of this entry »

A Life Well Lived

“I don’t want to live 98.9% for Jesus,” … “I want to live 100% for Him!” - Brett McLean

Serving as a camp counselor in north central Oregon, Brett McLean (son of Scott and Christie Huggins McLean, Dip ’73 ex.) jumped in to a turbulent waterfall to rescue a camper who had slipped and fallen in. Sadly both lives were lost.
