‘Relationships are everything’: Business major Grant Warner puts people before profit

There are no limits at MU. You can develop a level of expertise that will prepare you for the finest graduate schools and the most prestigious companies — and you can align your studies with what you value most.

Grant Warner dreams of starting an organization that trains entrepreneurs in developing nations to run their own companies. He's convinced Multnomah is the best place to prepare.

"We can learn all the big business terms in class, but what business comes down to is focusing on relationships with others," he says. "I've learned that you're not just in ministry if you're a pastor or a missionary. Ministry is wherever you are."

While he lays the groundwork for a gratifying career, the business major is enjoying everything Multnomah has to offer, including the challenging classes and Christian fellowship.

The professors make MU unique," he says. "I meet with them regularly, and they're interested in my life. The want me to succeed."

The same goes for his classmates. "The people here actually want to know how you're doing when they ask you," he says. "You don't have to beg someone to pray for you — they just stop and do it."

Warner says MU is reinforcing the value of loving God and loving people. "The education I'm getting is exceptionally beneficial," he says. "It's showing me I don't have to be a genius to succeed. Studies are important, but relationships are everything."

Meet Multnomah’s Faculty – Professor Jay Held

Many hearts have been touched by the faculty here at Multnomah.  Read the rest of this entry »

Of Parking Spaces and Fall Semesters

This morning I drove into the parking lot here at Multnomah to begin my work day. I had a harder time than yesterday finding a parking spot (which was a harder time than the day before, and likely not as hard as tomorrow!). This is how I know that Fall Semester is about to start.

However, the real verification comes when I see the insane amount of items on deck for employees and students alike in the week leading up to convocation!

Check the Master Calendar for the scoop on all of it...
