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 »
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 »

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

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!).
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!)

Seminary Class Participation
Here's a brief synopsis of the practical involvement of one of Dr. Roger Trautmann's classes:
MBS students enrolled in "PM 645: Evangelism for the 21st Century" have an assignment to interview practitioners mobilizing God’s people in the area of “word & deed” evangelism. The assignment is designed to take the theory constructed and discussed in the classroom and then see it contextualizing and implementing in the world of “every-day” life. The Innovative Evangelism Conference provides the rare opportunity to hear and interact with up-to-date practitioners and theoreticians through plenary and workshop sessions. This has been provided by the Next Generation Alliance , a leader in the area of evangelism in both the local community and around the world, to MBS students. PM (Pastoral Ministry) 645 students are given the opportunity to attend and report on what they learned in this conference as a part of the course.
