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 »

The students can sign up for as many hours as they wish, for individual prayer or prayer in small Read the rest of this entry »

Valentine’s Day & Multnomah’s 75th Birthday

Many of you know that February 14th, 1936 was the day that Rev. John G.

And the following Fall 1936 semester saw Multnomah School of the Bible's first class of students. 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 »

Recently, Multnomah President Dr. Daniel Lockwood was on The Georgene Rice Show to discuss a major piece of rule-making on the part of the federal government that threatens to create a layer of governmental oversight of private institutions that also opens the door for various forms of discrimination against institutions who have a faith-based mission.

During the interview, this article from Christianity Today was referenced. Read the rest of this entry »

Here's a post from 2008 about Consitution Day at Multnomah.

Making Sense of the Establishment and Freedom Clauses

Every year we are required by law to do an activity in honor of Constitution Day. In the past, we have held “Prayer at the Flagpole” and have prayed for our nation, but this year we are doing something different. Instead, on September 17 (today for most of you), Multnomah will be hosting a panel discussion on two of the most important and yet, most debated portions of the U.S. Constitution: the Establishment Clause and the Freedom of Religion Clause.
