Make the most of your ministry
Your calling is unique, but the call to Christian leadership in every field requires biblical wisdom, spiritual maturity and cultural awareness. Those are the qualities you’ll develop at Multnomah Biblical Seminary. Whether you’re examining an ancient manuscript, representing Christ during an interfaith dialogue or gaining practical experience in our Mentored Ministry program, you’ll deepen your understanding of the Word and the complexities of modern society. And by the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to encourage hearts and share God’s truth in any setting.

- Teaching sites. Attend classes in Portland, Ore., or Reno, Nev.

Our seminary is dedicated to the exposition of Scripture through the learning of the original Biblical languages as well as dialoguing with science for the purpose of training ministers to have more helpful and holistic conversations in the realms of faith and science.
