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.

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 »

‘Tis the Season
‘Tis the season of tinsel and twinkling lights…holiday tunes and crowded shopping malls. December has come and brought along with it the joys of Christmas. I love this season and everything that it brings. Read the rest of this entry »
Multnomah University just couldn't be what it is without its students. This post is part of a new series written by students, about students. Our hope is that prospective students can get a feel for what the student body is like and alumni can get to know who it is that they support.

Forget Black Friday & Cyber Monday
Thanksgiving kicks off a busy season. The sales of Black Friday have been an American tradition for many, many years. Recently, the addition of Cyber Monday has added to the consumerism mindset - only with an online shopping flavor. Maybe this year we could make a difference by trying something different when Tuesday, November 27th rolls around? Read the rest of this entry »

Cameron (B.S. '06) and Deidre Potter (B.A. '05)
Alumni Cameron and Deidre met at Multnomah in the fall 2003 while working on Multnomah Community Outreach team together. After spending most of their Spring Breaks on missions trips to Compton, California, they developed a passion for educating inner city youth. In February of 2007, a year after they got married, Cameron and Deidre responded to the call that God had placed on their hearts and left Portland, moving by faith to Los Angeles.

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.
“Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him” Psalm 34:8
Autumn is in full swing here in the Pacific Northwest! Signs of fall are evident everywhere—the freshness in the crisp cool air, the smell of fires, warm and vibrantly colored leaves beginning to fall and cover the ground. It’s that time of year again when thoughts are naturally turned towards feelings of nostalgia, holiday memories and family traditions. I love this time of year for these reasons, as well as for the opportunity to consider a season of gratitude. Read the rest of this entry »

In fulfilling my calling, I've served on church staffs, planted churches, and recently founded an outreach to coaches/athletes that has gained tremendous momentum in the Pacific Northwest.
