Be Safe. Be Informed.

Last Spring, Multnomah launched a new Emergency Notification System - you may again be seeing posters around campus that look like the one below. It is a part of our ongoing effort to ensure greater campus safety and communication. Hopefully, we'll never have to use it, but in the event that something serious happens, we would like to spread the word quickly! Read the rest of this entry »

Remember this article that made the rounds a few months back?

The Award

One fact that we still haven't mentioned is that Dr. Paul Louis Metzger of Multnomah Biblical Seminary won an award for the article from the Evangelical Press Association (EPA).

More specifically, it was the

Question About Doctrine

We often get messages from people around the world asking questions about what we believe, or what our stance is on [insert your subject here]...below is a great example of one of those. President Dan Lockwood took a moment to answer.

The Question

The Multnomah Doctrinal Statement says "the Father has planned all that comes to pass." Could you please briefly clarify what this means? Read the rest of this entry »

In Their Own Words

A professor, an alumnus, and a student share about the interconnectedness of the Multnomah family.

Dr. Roger Trautmann, Associate Professor of Pastoral Ministries

On April 21, 2010, Linda Wood, a graduate of Multnomah Biblical Seminary, shared with students in my Orientation to Institutional Ministries class, a chaplaincy track course.  She described her call and preparation for police chaplaincy.  God has given her sensitivity to this ministry through her experiences as a wife and mother of police officers.  In this line of work officers face many challenges, not only in their personal lives but also in their public role.  A chaplain gives assistance in the care of officers and their family as well as service to the public through emergency response, death notifications, domestic issues and the like.  Linda explained the practical training that she receives to support her work as well as the prayer support and personal resources that bless her in this ministry role.  She provided “street” wisdom for the students in my class as well as stories of opportunities she has been given to demonstrate and declare the good news of God’s love and grace because of her front-line ministry. The class was greatly enriched by Linda’s presentation.

Rev. Linda Wood, M.A. Pastoral Studies, ‘00

Greetings fellow Alumni! Recently I received the annual call from a college student requesting a donation to the school. What a special blessing! I always enjoy taking a few minutes to talk to the student, ask how he/she is doing, and answer their questions. Of course, the students always ask how they can pray for me, my family and ministry. This time the student (Katie Wendel) and I made a special connection and we agree that it was definitely a God thing. We found out that we share an interest in horses and since I was going to be at the school to talk to Dr. Trautmann’s class, Katie and I decided to meet. What a joy to spend time with this young woman! When my husband and I found out that she was from out of state we decided to 'adopt' her while she is in school. It hit me that this young woman could not afford to fly home for the holidays except Christmas. We can always add one more to our table to join our family and I would hope if it was my child, someone would do that for them. God blessed Katie and I. We connected almost immediately, and I know she will fit into our family. I would like to encourage others to think about adding this type of blessing to your lives. God bless each of you.

As a student caller at Multnomah, we call Multnomah alumni once a semester to keep them updated on campus life and talk with them about their lives. I called Linda Wood and started talking with her when her husband came home. She asked me to hold on for one moment and proceeded to have a quick conversation with her husband about his physical therapy. I heard Linda ask her husband what the physical therapist said about riding. Being a horse person myself, I asked her what kind of riding she was speaking about. We proceeded to discuss her time at Multnomah and her husband’s love for horses. She offered to have me out to their house to ride after they purchased another horse. She mentioned that she was coming to the seminary to speak in a class and that it would be a great opportunity to meet so I could get to know her and see pictures of her babies (both horses and grandchildren). I feel so privileged to have an opportunity to establish a relationship with such an awesome woman of God. In our short meeting, I got to talk with Linda and discuss where I am going as a student at Multnomah. Linda was so encouraging and I am looking forward to getting to know her better.

Multnomah Is Part Of My Story – Call For Videos!

Attention all Alumni!

The Multnomah family wants to know what you are up to. You can help us share your story by making a video!

3 Easy Steps to Making Your Video

  1. Make Your Video
    • Start with: “Hi, I’m (name) and I graduated in (class year) with a (degree name).”
    • What you are currently doing (life, ministry, career)
    • Multnomah’s ongoing impact in your life
    • End with: “I’m (name) and Multnomah is part of my story."
  2.  Keep It Short
    • Under 2 minutes – or shorter if possible, but still riveting!
  3. Upload!
    • Upload your video to YouTube or another video sharing site and send the link to alumni@multnomah.edu OR send us a DVD.

What Will Happen With It

We will choose a video each month to be our Alumni Spotlight Video. (If your video is chosen, we will send your video’s link to all Multnomah alumni in the Alumni Connection e-newsletter.)

We’ll likely add all of them to our YouTube Channel’s “favorites” section and upload them to the Facebook Fan Page:

Now go… Get rolling! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures! Nobody tells the Multnomah story like our Alumni!

A New Partnership With Georgene Rice

Some of you who listen to The Georgene Rice Show on Portland's KPDQ 93.9 fm radio station already know this - but for the rest of you, we have some really big news!

(See the Podcasted Show announcement below)

The Deal

We've recently signed an agreement to be the primary sponsor of the very well-known Georgene Rice Show.

  • The show will now be broadcast from the "Multnomah Studios at KPDQ"
  • We've partnered up to sponser her podcasts and the call-in phone line
  • There will be a new segment called "Ask the Professor"...(for which they've opened up a competition for Multnomah people to write and produce the segment jingle for it! - email us at procom@multnomah.edu for more details on how you can be famous)
  • Ms. Rice will bring her show to the Multnomah campus (Portland) 3 times/year now
  • There are more items to add to this list, but it's long enough for a blog post!

The Kick-Off

Our President, Dr. Dan Lockwood, went on air live last Monday (4/19) to discuss the new agreement. We've posted the mp3 podcast here for your enjoyment. You'll hear a Multnomah Biblical Seminary radio commercial to start it out and then Dr. Dan comes on at about the 8-minute mark. So simply scroll over to go straight to that if you like. (But the whole show is great! Hello, Georgene!).
