These past few months have been characterized by change — a season that has marked me, shaped me and continued to challenge me towards a deeper dependence on Jesus than I have ever known.

Blake Williams, Multnomah alumnus and Executive Director of Pure Life Alliance, invites you to next week's chapel series.
I can still hear Dr. Pamela Reeve’s words: “You have a serious issue. You’ll need to stay out of ministry for at least a year.” These were not the words I wanted to hear when I was four months from graduating from Multnomah Biblical Seminary with my MDiv. I had been grappling with sexual sin for almost two decades, and I had just confessed it all to Dr. Reeve. Now, more than 14 years later, God has turned my story into one of sexual redemption and hope. Read the rest of this entry »

"And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit."

“Dr. G” – As He is Affectionately Known
The auditorium erupted into applause and a standing ovation as Dr. Garry Friesen, this year’s commencement speaker, was introduced and presented with the special honor of Professor Emeritus by Multnomah’s President and Board of Trustees. The influence “Dr. G” has had in the lives of students, faculty, staff and alumni alike is remarkable.

No matter what you've done in the past, God wants you to worship Him wholeheartedly today and enjoy life to the full. It’s possible!
When I stand on a sandy beach looking out over the watery expanse of the ocean, hearing the thunder of the waves, I am awed. Every time, I think, “What a magnificent creation! What a marvelous Creator who holds these waters in the palm of His hand!” Instinctively, I begin to sing “How Great Thou Art.” No one hears me as the wind rushes my words to the Lord alone.
Whenever we ask our alumni, "What was your favorite part of your time at Multnomah?". We hear responses about the fun memories made with friends, appreciation for relevant biblical training, and the transformation that God worked in their hearts. Not surprisingly, we also often hear about the positive influence that the professors had; the passion with which they taught the Word of God and how they lived out the love that they spoke of in the classroom. Many hearts have been touched by the faculty here at Multnomah. Read the rest of this entry »
Kathryn Dunbar (‘98 MAPS)
Kathryn graduated from Multnomah University with a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Studies and an emphasis in Women’s Ministries. She secured a position in the Registrar’s office at Multnomah, and worked there for four years. After studying and working at Multnomah, the Lord led Kathryn back home to Fresno. Kathryn said, “leaving Fresno to take a job at Multnomah was one of the hardest decisions to make, but returning home was almost as difficult. I created a new network of family and friends, loved my job and got involved at a church. The Lord has certainly blessed my move back.” Read the rest of this entry »
