“Dr. G” – As He is Affectionately Known

The auditorium erupted into applause and a standing ovation as Dr. Garry Friesen, this year’s commencement speaker, was introduced and presented with the special honor of Professor Emeritus by Multnomah’s President and Board of Trustees. The influence “Dr. G” has had in the lives of students, faculty, staff and alumni alike is remarkable.  The evening was especially significant for our Multnomah community in light of Garry’s retirement announcement after 37 years of teaching on Multnomah’s faculty.

M.A. in Global Development & Justice

By Greg Burch

It was early morning when I was huddled around a fire with ten boys, ages 8 to 13, preparing to work in the community market in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Each Saturday these boys would show up at 5 a.m. to get their “choice” wheelbarrow preparing to carry client’s groceries around the market and then either back to their cars or homes like caddies. For a number of weeks I joined them, hoping to learn about the lives of young workers and to observe how Bolivian Christians reach out to this group of children. In some cases, these children live on the street. Others live at home and help out by providing some of the family income. Compared to some working conditions around the world, these boys are fortunate. Read the rest of this entry »

The World Needs Multnomah University Graduates

Having personally watched the impact MU graduates have on the world around them - sometimes in ministry and sometimes in the marketplace - I become more convinced of my belief that the world needs MU grads. The love and compassion they show for those around them is unsurpassed. I've gotten to watch the change in their lives as they mature and learn during their years working toward a degree. They go off and routinely become the best employees because they have hearts that serve others. They are always learning and always striving to do better.

Meet Multnomah’s Faculty – Professor Rob Hildebrand

Whenever we ask our alumni, "What was your favorite part of your time at Multnomah?". We hear responses about the fun memories made with friends,  appreciation for relevant biblical training, and the transformation that God worked in their hearts. Not surprisingly, we also often hear about the positive influence that the professors had; the passion with which they taught the Word of God and how they lived out the love that they spoke of in the classroom. Many hearts have been touched by the faculty here at Multnomah.  Read the rest of this entry »

On the Flip Side – Kathryn Dunbar (’98 MAPS)

Kathryn Dunbar (‘98 MAPS)

Kathryn graduated from Multnomah University with a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Studies and an emphasis in Women’s Ministries. She secured a position in the Registrar’s office at Multnomah, and worked there for four years. After studying and working at Multnomah, the Lord led Kathryn back home to Fresno. Kathryn said, “leaving Fresno to take a job at Multnomah was one of the hardest decisions to make, but returning home was almost as difficult. I created a new network of family and friends, loved my job and got involved at a church. The Lord has certainly blessed my move back.” Read the rest of this entry »
