"And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit."
II Corinthians 3:18

“Dr. G” – As He is Affectionately Known

The auditorium erupted into applause and a standing ovation as Dr. Garry Friesen, this year’s commencement speaker, was introduced and presented with the special honor of Professor Emeritus by Multnomah’s President and Board of Trustees. The influence “Dr. G” has had in the lives of students, faculty, staff and alumni alike is remarkable.  The evening was especially significant for our Multnomah community in light of Garry’s retirement announcement after 37 years of teaching on Multnomah’s faculty.

A Season of Thanks

“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 »

Transforming Love

Transforming Love

This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. I John 4:10

I recently had the privilege of attending the John G. Mitchell Christian Life Conference here on Multnomah's campus. Throughout the week we looked at different attributes of Christ—His compassion, His justice, His perfection and His transforming love. Read the rest of this entry »

Hiding His Word

Hiding His Word

“Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” (Psalm 119:11)

I was recently reminded again of why it is that I absolutely love being a part of the ministry of Multnomah! Sitting in Dr. Stephen Kim’s BIB503 class this past week, I was poignantly provided with a reaffirmation of ministry, vision and purpose. Read the rest of this entry »

How does Multnomah measure its success in changing the hearts and lives of people? One way we measure success is through hearing your stories and how God is at work in you.

Help us share your story.

A Life Well Lived

A Life Well Lived

“I don’t want to live 98.9% for Jesus,” … “I want to live 100% for Him!” - Brett McLean

Life Lost

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending a memorial service for a young man who, at the age of 26, lost his life I am told, while attempting to save another. Serving as a camp counselor in north central Oregon, Brett McLean (son of Scott and Christie Huggins McLean, Dip ’73 ex.) jumped in to a turbulent waterfall to rescue a camper who had slipped and fallen in. Sadly both lives were lost.

Steadied By Faith

Steadied By Faith

A Message from the Alumni Director

“How could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” Genesis 39:9

I've been enjoying Dr. Lockwood’s book, Unlikely Heroes—Ordinary People with Extraordinary Faith, a Biblical and Personal Reflection on Hebrews 11. Through my read I’ve appreciated the opportunity of getting to know our president more. His unique blend of academic perspective and devotional application, as he identifies the cast of these Old Testament characters—simple, ordinary, flawed people living out extraordinary faith, has been encouraging.

Warmest of greetings to you from Uganda, East Africa! My greetings today come from Jinja where I am currently serving with a mission’s team from our church.
