"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.  The evening was especially significant for our Multnomah community in light of Garry’s retirement announcement after 37 years of teaching on Multnomah’s faculty.

By Greg Burch

It was early morning when I was huddled around a fire with ten boys, ages 8 to 13, preparing to work in the community market in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Each Saturday these boys would show up at 5 a.m. to get their “choice” wheelbarrow preparing to carry client’s groceries around the market and then either back to their cars or homes like caddies. For a number of weeks I joined them, hoping to learn about the lives of young workers and to observe how Bolivian Christians reach out to this group of children. In some cases, these children live on the street. Others live at home and help out by providing some of the family income. Compared to some working conditions around the world, these boys are fortunate. Read the rest of this entry »

Meet Multnomah’s Faculty – Professor Rob Hildebrand

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 »

What Is Lectio Divina?

Lectio Divina Chapels at Multnomah are, simply, times of focused and prayerful attention to short passages of scripture.  This is done in small groups of 4 to 6. The point is to slow down, to sit quietly, and to consider God’s Word, praying for insight and a willing spirit to hear and obey.  Repeated readings of the short passage and prayerful consideration of the text give students an opportunity for prolonged exposure to a passage of scripture, placing themselves under the authority of God’s Word and to consider God’s will for their lives that day.

10 Things That Really Matter On Election Day

On the eve of a hotly contested Presidential Election vote many people are prognosticating on how momentous it all is. We've even heard some pundits call it the "most important decision in our lifetimes." We're skeptical of such lofty sentiments and wondered if there are other decisions that actually matter more. We wondered if important decisions are the sum total of a series of better, "smaller" decisions.

Hiding His Word

Hiding His Word

“Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” (Psalm 119:11)

I was recently reminded again of why it is that I absolutely love being a part of the ministry of Multnomah! Sitting in Dr. Stephen Kim’s BIB503 class this past week, I was poignantly provided with a reaffirmation of ministry, vision and purpose. Read the rest of this entry »
