Project Patch – James and Sarah Smith

Project Patch – James and Sarah Smith

James (Dip '73) and Sarah (Wendy) Smith

It seems forever ago that my wife, Sarah and I, attended and lived on or near Multnomah University’s campus. During that time two of our three children were born and we began the adventure of serving Jesus vocationally rather than pursuing the career of my previous education. During those formative years at Multnomah, as a new Christian, we learned that God was true to His word. Read the rest of this entry »

Meet Multnomah’s Faculty – Professor Jay Held

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 »

Multnomah University Appearing in Portlandia Season 3

Remember this casting call for  Portlandia Season 3 filming on campus?

Portlandia TV Show Features Multnomah University Campus

Portlandia filmed a number of sketches for season 3 for two days this past summer and we had a blast. The Portlandia film crew and actors were some of the best people we've ever had the privilege of working with. It was great seeing Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen hanging around the Admissions Offices or sitting in the commuter lounge of the JCA or sweating it out for three hours with Dr. Dan Lockwood in a very hot Mitchell Library because the sound guys needed the AC turned off!

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.

Alumni in Oaxaca – Casa Compasiva

Alumni in Oaxaca – Casa Compasiva

We have eight children and I love birth, so when God nudged me to start a birth center in Oaxaca, Mexico, it seemed like the logical next step in our long-term family ministry here. We could use compassionate maternity care to reach women with the love of God! Read the rest of this entry »
