On July 1, 2012, another team will be sent to Kigali to train ten Africans in setting up a library and placing the now 18,500+ books onto the shelves. The journey started in 2008 when Africa New Life Ministries (founded by Multnomah Biblical Seminary graduate Charles Burgeya) was awarded a grant to start a Bible training school in Kigali, Rwanda. Upon hearing this good news, a group of Multnomah students banded together under the same dream - to create the largest theological library in Rwanda. This 2012 team will take the next step in helping establish the library. Read the rest of this entry »

Student Video Blooper Reel
If you've been reading, you know that we've done a series of videos to promo our 75th Anniversary Homecoming week (That's this week!). Here is the 3rd video below. It's not really a blooper reel as much as it was a trick question for the stars to get them all loosened up. Check out what happens when the director (also a student) tells them to say "Don't go to homecoming."

The staff of Multnomah's new student publication Muse just launched the online magazine's third issue. The theme for this December edition is "Celebration." Celebrating the everyday gifts from God - even the little things. Celebrating triumph and freedom from the chains of abuse. Celebrating a commitment to live life with joy to the fullest for Christ's glory. Read the rest of this entry »

We ran across an essay at Inside Higher Ed that was written after the author read the new book titled The Anointed: Evangelical Truth in a Secular Age. It begs many questions of those who consider themselves both academic and an Evangelical. We're pretty sure our faculty fit this profile and that our alumni have an opinion on the matter.

"I came across a quote the other day that said, 'We had the experience, but we missed the meaning'. Today I want to share with you the most difficult experience I have ever had. But I want to share with you the meaning... God has a way of turning tragedy into victory. Our story is a story of loss and of pain, but also a story of great gain."
Who can argue with the sheer manliness of Cinco de Mustache? That's right. No one. The men of MU gave it their all today, singing their hearts out--mugs of milk in-hand--to the applauding masses that filed in to witness the spectacle. Even College Preview visitors participated in the festivities, armed with fake mustaches.
Faculty involvement is up, no doubt due to the prominence of their colleague Dr. Ray Lubeck, the events' reigning dignitary, who gave the most inspiring speech in recent Cinco history.
