On Wednesday, August 28th, Multnomah University will host the 2019 Church Rush, formerly known as the Church Fair.
This is an awesome opportunity for students, both new and returning, to learn about local churches and get plugged into a great faith community.
There will be 18 churches from the Portland metro area in attendance. Each church will have a booth with information about their congregations and ministries. Church staff members will be at their booths eager to answer any questions and connect with our students.
We believe in the Church, and we want to encourage all of our students to attend and serve in a local church. But with so many choices, it can be difficult for students to find a connection or a sense of belonging with a local church. Our hope is that through the Church Rush, our students can feel welcomed and connected to a local community before they even walk through the doors on a Sunday morning. Students can learn about service opportunities and ministries that ignite their passions and develop their spiritual life outside of the walls of the university.
Additionally, this event is a great way for MU to build connections with local churches for ongoing partnership and future opportunities for our students.
The event will be held on August 28th, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the JCA Student Center.
