Multnomah's Exodus Team Brings Christ to Local Groups

2/18/2008
Exodus, Multnomah's dynamic, multi-arts group continues its ministry this spring with several upcoming events at local churches and schools. Now in its second year, Exodus is more than an event worship team; it is a group of students that helps others experience biblically-centered worship through the arts.

"The Exodus team includes Multnomah students with skills in dance, drama, poetry, sculpture, graphic design, and music," Daniel Congdon, the director of Exodus said. "This year's team members bring a great wealth of artistic experience."

"We are excited to be taking on more events in 2008. Each one is unique, in that the Exodus team first builds a relationship with the ministry or organization," Congdon said. "These relationships help direct the Exodus team as the members learn to discern how to apply their gifting and theological training into a real-life ministry opportunity."

This year, the Exodus team will partner with six youth groups and a Christian high school to develop 11 different worship events. "These events are Christ-centered, engaging, and a unique way for Multnomah students to experience life-changing ministry," Congdon said.

The team will appear at Calvary Community Church in Longview, Washington on February 20, to work with a youth group of 200 students. On March 9, Exodus will then visit Grace Chapel in Wilsonville, leading worship for the youth group. At Multnomah, Exodus will lead a special Good Friday chapel on March 21.

Congdon, a graduate of Multnomah Bible College, launched Exodus as a new branch of Multnomah's ministry programs in the fall of 2006. At present, the team is made up of 8 Multnomah college students.
