Defending National Champs End MU Dreams

Check out this end-of-season recap from Coach Bickley. It had a heart breaker of an ending, but was a memorable season nonetheless!

Tonight ended a great season by the Multnomah University Lions. We lost to Hillsdale by a score of 81-86. We were down by 4 at the half, fell behind 76-64 in the second half, then came storming back. Down by 8 with just over a minute to go, Willey Yates nailed a deep three pointer, then MU got a steal and Steve Bustrin added another three pointer to cut the lead to 2 points with 40 seconds left. Hillsdale scored to go up 85-81. Gian Cook got a great look from behind the arc but could not get it to go as the final score was 86-81. Read the rest of this entry »

Alumna Teaches Others How to ‘Walk Free’

JoAnne E. Billison – 2009 MDiv Seminary Graduate

I came into the kingdom of God married and a mother of two. My salvation was the greatest moment of my life and I passionately pursued a relationship with Jesus. I couldn’t get enough of Him. It wasn’t long after I came to Christ that I hungered for more scriptural training and education, so I enrolled at Multnomah Seminary. Read the rest of this entry »

Limited Sky, Unlimited God

Limited Sky, Unlimited God

Sky Cady - Class of '03

I always thought I would end up serving the Lord in a third world country, bringing the gospel to those who had never heard the name of Jesus. During a final SWOT chapel of my senior year, a fire was lit within me for the nations and since that time I’ve visited and/or served short term in 34 different countries. Recently I landed in the United Kingdom—a far cry from the picture I originally imagined in the Congo, or the Maldives.

Missionaries of Assurance

Missionaries of Assurance

Jesse and Krista Ashman - BA 2003, BS 2003

Raising support for overseas ministry is a bear! Depending on support while living overseas is a whole other beast! My wife and I are beginning our fifth year in overseas ministry. While raising support, we were given a lot of good advice from books and seasoned missionaries. But now that we have moved overseas and become dependent on that support, the challenge of financial unpredictability hasn’t gone away. Even from the shores of Sweden, we read stories of economic hardship…and we, like many others, feel vulnerable. But maybe that’s the point. Read the rest of this entry »

Beautiful Gifts in Ugly Wrapping

Beautiful Gifts in Ugly Wrapping

Annette Horton - 1986

Gifts are fun to give and to receive . . . especially when they come beautifully wrapped. Oh the anticipation that builds as one gently unties the ribbon and then carefully folds back the paper to reveal what is inside. Unfortunately, some gifts do not come quite so beautifully wrapped. These gifts, even when given by a loved one, give us pause. Do we want to know what is inside? Read the rest of this entry »

Dr. Mom – Masters and Motherhood

Carmen Imes - Class of '99

If you had told me 5 years ago that as a mother of 3 young children I would be entering a Ph.D program, I would have said you were nuts … and we both would have been right. This is nuts, humanly speaking. But God is full of surprises! Read the rest of this entry »
