First Education Majors Graduate

First Education Majors Graduate

The following is adapted from a monthly letter sent in June 2011 to donors and friends of Multnomah.
***

May, with its wonderful commencement celebration, is the most exciting — and the busiest — month of the year for Multnomah University.

It’s when we witness the fruit of our labors, 200 graduates, cross the stage to receive their diplomas and our congratulations. It’s when we replay the stories of the quiet yet relentless grace of God in the lives of malleable students who will extend our mission and vision.

It’s True. God Brings The Students.

"I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times. We have to be faithful in our jobs, but it’s the Lord who recruits for us."

With the words above as her admonishment,  Admissions Counselor Lisa Hezmalhalch sent us an email with a word of encouragement via a blog post from a student who will be starting at Multnomah in the TESOL program this Fall semester.

Dr. Dan Video – Spring Thaw, Accreditation and Easter!

Quotes from the Video

April is an exciting month! We will be hosting an event here on campus called Spring Thaw, where 850 high school students and their leaders will come from all over the Northwest and join 400 of our current students for a time of worship, teaching, and plain old fun.

We have two main goals for this event. First, we want students to grow deeper in their knowledge of God and gain a deeper understanding of His Word. Second, we hope that some of them will become Multnomah students in the next several years. Read the rest of this entry »

Offering Hope Amidst The Terrible Aftermath in Japan

Guest Post by David Sanford

Like most people, I still haven’t been able to comprehend the staggering toll from Japan’s worst disaster since World War II.

Nuclear radiation leaks, rolling blackouts that continue to put hospital patients and others (especially the elderly) at risk, a critical lack of sanitary water, the long-term displacement of massive numbers of people, and extremely unsafe conditions across hundreds of square miles will claim growing numbers of Read the rest of this entry »

As 2010 draws to an end, I am writing to you about Multnomah's vision for the future and how you can support our students.

Vision

Vision is a word we've been using a lot lately at Multnomah. As we look back on this past year we can't help but reflect upon our new vision "to become a biblical university of global influence that dynamically shapes Christian students into ambassadors of Jesus Christ, saturated in Scripture and ready to serve."

President’s 2010 Christmas Letter

As you read this letter, Jani and I will have pulled out boxes of Christmas decorations from their attic home, launching a multi-day process of “decking the halls” for Advent.  We love this annual ritual even though it takes energy, creativity, patience, and more than a few cups of rich, foamy eggnog!

Nativity Scenes

I especially look forward to unpacking our two nativity scenes.  One is a delicate wooden crèche, with tiny figures shaped on a lathe, which we acquired when traveling through “Luther Country” in Germany.  The other is from France, and contains a dozen figurines called “santons.”   Read the rest of this entry »
