Check Out Our New D.Min. Track: Global Evangelism

We sat down with Dr. Derek Chinn, director of MU's Doctor of Ministry program, to find out more about the degree's latest track, global evangelism.

Space is still available, and classes start June 2. If you have questions about this track or want to register, contact Dr. Chinn by emailing dchinn@multnomah.edu or calling 503-251-6732.

What's the purpose of the global evangelism track?

Dr. Luis Palau

Dr. Luis Palau

This track is in line with Multnomah’s goal of equipping its students for global mission. The education our students receive is biblically-grounded and academically rigorous, and it deliberately integrates what's learned in the classroom with ministry that takes place in the real world.

How will the track prepare students for missional work?

The majority of the students are already evangelists. They are currently doing the very thing God has gifted them to do, and they will continue to evangelize to those who don’t know Jesus and train local congregations to share the Gospel.

Getting a D.Min. degree will give them the opportunity to study more in-depth the theological underpinnings of evangelism, learn about different strategies and methodologies for evangelism, develop a better understanding and appreciation for the work that builds and sustains evangelistic ministry, and learn from fellow evangelists serving in different contexts.

How is this track distinct from programs offered by other seminaries?

Dr. Tim Robnett

Students participate and study with instructors who are actively engaged in evangelism around the world. The faculty mentor, Dr. Tim Robnett, is president of Tim Robnett Ministries, and he actively trains and mentors evangelists, locally and internationally. International evangelist Dr. Luis Palau is the senior lecturer for this track and will participate in the instruction. Guest lecturers are respected educators and practitioners in evangelism.

How is the track enriching in terms of professional, spiritual and personal development?

Students will use their professional ministry skills in the church and for the community to equip believers in the ministry of evangelism. They are expected to nurture their personal relationship with God and mature in personal character. Participants in this track will have ample opportunity to reflect on and develop a process of adaptation and application of biblical principles in the area of evangelism.

What makes this program stand out?

The experience that Dr. Robnett and Dr. Palau bring to the classroom is outstanding, and I can't think of any program that brings these types of skills and experience to bear. Dr. Robnett’s deep understanding of how evangelists are gifted and wired significantly shapes how instruction will occur, what coursework is assigned, and what topics will be covered.

Alumna Heart for Hurting Minds

Day Marshall  - BS 2009

My husband, Andrew, and I came to MU after a number of years out of school. He came because God stirred him to act on the calling placed on him years earlier. I enrolled the following year because I was jealous of the depth of knowledge I saw him gaining. Read the rest of this entry »

Alumna Teaches Others How to ‘Walk Free’

JoAnne E. Billison – 2009 MDiv Seminary Graduate

I came into the kingdom of God married and a mother of two. My salvation was the greatest moment of my life and I passionately pursued a relationship with Jesus. I couldn’t get enough of Him. It wasn’t long after I came to Christ that I hungered for more scriptural training and education, so I enrolled at Multnomah Seminary. Read the rest of this entry »

Still Donating To Haiti Earthquake Relief

1 Comment » Written on March 3rd, 2010 by

Multnomah students raised over $2000 for Haiti earthquake relief during the week of the Global Ministries Conference. (And we're sure the dollar amount is much higher now - but we weren't able to confirm exactly how much at time of posting).

Haitian Seminary Collapses

Bruce and Cindy McMartin, grads of Multnomah, teach at a seminary in Haiti which recently collapsed because of the earthquake. All funds collected will be sent to help them.

There have been reports that there are around 5000 people camped out on a campus that holds roughly 200 students! There is no place to use the restroom (save for holes they've dug), medical supplies run out fast, and food/water supplies run short.

Burying Dead Students

And more disturbing than all of this is that we've heard reports that they even had to bury some dead students on the campus grounds because there was no other place to put them.

Now, try to imagine all of this on the Multnomah campus - but with far fewer resources!

Please Help

  • Financial gifts can be given at the Student Accounts Office for the "Haiti Fund"
  • Gifts can be given through March 5th

Sustainable Hybrid Education

Comments Off Written on January 29th, 2010 by
Categories: General, Programs, Seminary

Now that we've got your attention with fancy words like "sustainable" and "hybrid", we actually have an interesting article we found some time back that discusses the merits of education that is a blend of online and in-person activities (hence the "hybrid" terminology!).

Sustainable Hybrids - Inside Higher Ed

What does this have to do with Multnomah?

Turns out, little ol' Multnomah is already doing this with what we call "distributed learning" at the Seminary. We call it Multnomah Connect. Not only can you take seminary classes online, but you can take them at our Reno-Tahoe or Anchorage sites as well. Then, when you're ready, you can finish it all up with a visit to the Portland campus. (Somewhere in here, we hear the word "sustainable" too. Yikes!)
