Graduation is not the end of the journey at Multnomah. It is a turning point that marks the Lord’s faithfulness thus far and inspires hope for the future. A Multnomah education continues beyond our halls because we prepare students to keep growing in Christ, exploring the Scriptures, and serving others for a lifetime.
Last weekend, Multnomah Biblical Seminary commenced the graduation of its first Doctor of Ministry in Global Evangelism students. The D.Min. in Global Evangelism program is the first of its kind in the nation and reflects the historic values of Multnomah. Whether local or global, full-time or part-time, online or residential, Multnomah University and Biblical Seminary equips students to love Christ and serve their neighbors in any calling or context around the world. We come alongside our students to enrich their spiritual formation, deepen their understanding of Scripture, and hone their ministry skills as they serve in their contexts.
Our graduates earned their D.Min. in Global Evangelism degrees while leading ministries and churches around the world. Martha Wagner, of Corvallis, Oregon, is the president of Hope Ministries International and has devoted her life to evangelizing and training women around the world in countries like Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Spain, Poland, and England. Three of our graduates attended on scholarship from ETeamGlobal, a Portland-based evangelistic ministry. Roman Baranowski, of Lodz, Poland, is a former Baptist pastor who now serves as the president of One 4 All Ministries, which ministers in Eastern Europe. George Muguro, of Nairobi, Kenya, is a Bishop in the Pentecostal Evangelistic Fellowship of Africa overseeing several churches in Nairobi and the Manna Bible Institute, which trains rural pastors and evangelists. Arthur Magezi, of Kampala, Uganda, planted over 50 churches in Uganda and serves as the president of Christ Transformation Ministries, which launched an institute to train evangelists for East Africa.
For three years, our graduates attended annual ten-day intensives with their cohort on campus. For the remainder of the semester, they participated in online interactions led by our faculty designed to cultivate their growth as evangelists and ministry leaders. Our graduates received advanced training focused on communicating the gospel effectively in our ever-changing world to expand their ministry reach.
Dr. Greg Dueker, Director of the Doctor of Ministry program, commented on the integration of our graduates’ ministries with their degree, “These students have an amazing amount of experience as evangelists. They had the opportunity to work in their own ministry contexts with Dr. Tim Robnett who regularly joined them in their evangelistic outreaches and festivals. Our D.Min. program is inherently practical because all classroom learning is immediately integrated into the student’s ministry context. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people, have come to Christ or been trained for ministry through the efforts of these students, while they were completing this program. We do not know of any other program that provides this level of training and mentorship in the field of Global Evangelism.”
ETeamGlobal president, Dr. Tim Robnett, helped start the D.Min. in Global Evangelism program, and serves as one of our academic mentors. He is a Portland-based evangelist who founded his current ministry nine years ago after spending 20 years working with Luis Palau.
