Multnomah Biblical Seminary is pleased to announce the
official launch of its new online education program, "Multnomah Connect."
Initially Multnomah will offer two online classes during the fall 2007 semester
including Theology 507 and Biblical Leadership.
Multnomah Connect is an online pilot program that will lead
to a Graduate Certificate or MA(PS) when fully developed. This program is
designed for college and university graduates wanting advanced Bible and ministry
training for church leadership or full-time ministry.
Dr. Don Brake, the
academic dean of Multnomah Biblical Seminary is excited to see online education
grow at Multnomah. "We expect to have many people from around the world to be
able to get a sound education in Bible, theology, ministry training, and
spiritual formation," Dr. Brake said. "Multnomah Connect is a means for
students to continue their education even if they are unable to leave their
ministry or place of residence."
Multnomah alum and Director of Distance Education Charles Schreiner was elemental in developing
Connect. "The launch of Multnomah Connect isn't about the software although it
is innovative. It isn't about careful planning, although it has been well
planned. It isn't even about excellent faculty although we have some of the
finest. It is about connecting students to their educational goals furthering
the Kingdom of God worldwide," Schreiner said. "It is
exciting and motivational to think about the men and women who would not be
able to access this quality education without the power and convenience of the
"Modern higher education focuses on in-depth learning
through interactive dialog," Dr. Brake said. "Online learning is a delivery
system designed just for this type of education." Multnomah hopes to use these
new methods of learning to attain the goal of their mission statement: to
educate, equip, and enrich Christians for leadership in their church, their
community, and their world.
