Getting cheap tickets to a Portland Timbers soccer game is just one of the many benefits of being a Multnomah alum or employee. Be sure to mark your calendar and buy the tickets before they run out. This is the Portland Timbers' first official "Faith Night" since they joined the pro ranks of MLS - so let's join the other church groups there and show our support!
“I don’t want to live 98.9% for Jesus,” … “I want to live 100% for Him!” - Brett McLean
A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending a memorial service for a young man who, at the age of 26, lost his life I am told, while attempting to save another. 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.

“One of the most important reasons to travel is to know what it feels like to be a foreigner.” - A. A. Gill
Not until I had been off North American soil for three months did I fully realize how much I missed home. South America was still “America;” I don’t know what I expected, but I didn’t expect to feel so out of place, so distant, so foreign. On a daily basis, I found myself in situations where I was completely dependent on local people for the most basic necessities: food, water, transportation, communication. There was no “Spanglish” spoken here. Read the rest of this entry »

Want to be an "extra" on the TV show Portlandia? Well, here's your chance to appear in a special filming on Multnomah's campus! You won't get paid, but you'll probably have a great day and laugh a lot...and there's the whole cool TV show thing...And yeah, we know it's weird to do this at a conservative Christian college. (Is that irony? Discuss.)

In an era where small independent book stores are closing down, one still remains - and remains true to their passions of providing current and hard to find theology books. More than just a textbook and class notes store, Windows Booksellers have become a staple on Multnomah's campus. Oh yeah, they're open to the public too.
Michael Jordan told us we should drink Gatorade because he used it to get through tough games, and we listened. Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, told us that Weight Watchers helped her lose ten more pounds, and we listened.
We listen even more when an endorsement comes from someone who isn’t getting paid to say all the right things. In a recent blog post we shared with you stories from various alumni and students and Multnomah’s effect on their lives. These are powerful testimonials. Read the rest of this entry »

A Message from the Alumni Director
“How could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” Genesis 39:9
I've been enjoying Dr. Lockwood’s book, Unlikely Heroes—Ordinary People with Extraordinary Faith, a Biblical and Personal Reflection on Hebrews 11. Through my read I’ve appreciated the opportunity of getting to know our president more. His unique blend of academic perspective and devotional application, as he identifies the cast of these Old Testament characters—simple, ordinary, flawed people living out extraordinary faith, has been encouraging.

Again and again you will hear Multnomah faculty and staff members say "Alumni are our greatest recruiters," and they are proven correct as we listen to the stories. Incoming students often tell us about that special youth leader, pastor, speaker, or summer camp worker that changed their lives forever. We are so encouraged to be a part of an institution that is in the business of life change all over the world. Following is the story of a recent alum who shares her experience.

The Multnomah class of 1962 loves to reunite. Every five years we simply push the Class Reunion button and begin gearing up for our next reunion. 2012 proved to be no exception. It was to be our 50 Year Reunion, so we began planning a full year in advance. Read the rest of this entry »
