Attending A College Fair?

Here are some tips from the other side of the table.
The Fall season means the start of classes for all the students at Multnomah, but for me Fall is the beginning of "travel season". Each year I spend most of September and October attending college fairs in California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Each night I get the same questions and give out tons of information. I also pick up on a lot of common themes. By this point, I’ve noticed there are a lot of students who know what they are doing - but even more who don’t have a clue! Read the rest of this entry »

Application Deadline Extended

Times are tough and making big decisions is hard - harder than usual. We hear this from many, many potential students who are telling us about the difficulties they face.

Well, we, as a former US President once said, "...feel your pain."

So, since Multnomah still has some class seats open and since there was an abnormally high amount of applications yesterday (the original deadline of 7/15), the "deciders" at Multnomah extended the application deadline out to August 10th for this year only.

Maybe some of that influx of applications was due to this?

Prayer For Multnomah

Let me start by saying "thank you!" to all of you who faithfully pray for the ministry of Multnomah.

Prayer Needs

  • Dr. Dan and Eric Rice as they travel to the Alaska Student Aid Banquet, Saturday, June 13, 2009 at 7:00pm at ChangePoint Church in Anchorage Alaska
  • Multnomah staff, faculty and students who are travelling around the world in support of missionaries or on vacation.
  • Alumni missionaries
  • Staff who have been laid off or downgraded in hours - that they would find a new place to work before their MU end-date of June 30th, 2009 arrives.
  • For ProCom and the Web Team as they embark on the Website redesign this summer and fall - while maintaining all the rest of MU's communications tools and current site.
  • For our Advancement Department who is out in the field seeking donors to support scholarships and student aid.
  • For new students who are still on the fence about coming to Multnomah - that they would make a confident decision for Multnomah if that is God's will for them.
  • For the safety and energy of our Campus Services department as they embark on the many facilities projects this summer.

Thank you all for your prayers. May they be answered in the form of many future generations of ministers who love Jesus, know their Bibles, and advance God's kingdom.

Taiwan Trip Update 4

Two More Days 

taipei-101On Thursday, we spent the first part of our day visiting the Taipei 101.  I think this is the world's tallest building.  Even if it isn't, it does boast the world's fastest elevator.  It took only 43 seconds to go up 84 floors.  It was a bit foggy, but we still had a great view of the city.  We enjoyed the chance to see some of the sights and ate lunch downtown as well.

 Youth Groups and Night Markets

night-marketAfter the Taipei 101, we went back to the Bethany Academy and led a youth group service they have on Thursday evenings.  Many of the Bethany students that we met on Tuesday were attending.  The students led us in worship and then we had two of our students speak.  After our students spoke, we broke up into small groups to further explore some of the ideas that were shared.  Once the youth group ended, many of us went down to the Shilin Night Market do some exploring. 

Ensuring The The Gospel Is Heard

Friday we spent our morning back at Christ's College.  We led their chapel service which is about an hour and a half long.  We began with two of our students singing a special song and then we showed a video that showed off our campus.  After that I spoke about Multnomah's programs and then we had two student testimonies.  Coach Bickley finished off by sharing a short story and the gospel message. 

About half of the students at Christ's College are not believers and we wanted to be sure that they had the opportunity to hear the gospel. 

zooThe afternoon and evening were spent hanging out all over Taipei with students from Christ's College.  Some students went to Danshui, some went to the Shilin Night Market, and I went with a group of students to the Taipei Zoo.  It was really great to see the city and to get to know the students from Christ's College better.  Besides that, they were great tour guides.

Admissions & Basketball Go To Taiwan

It is just about 48 hours until I head to Taiwan.

Wow...It doesn't quite feel real yet. I'll be going to Taiwan for 10 days with members of Multnomah's Basketball and Volleyball teams to minister to the people of Taipei. The big idea of this trip is to use sports as a means of connecting with the people of Taipei and to be able to share Christ with them. Even though I am only marginally athletic, I am VERY excited to be a part of this team. I have the privilege of joining them in their ministry efforts as well as promoting Multnomah to a number of students.

Spending Our Time

The majority of our time will be spent connecting with students from four different schools in Taipei. Bethany Academy and Morrison Academy are two Christian schools that have a large number of missionary kids. We'll be speaking in their chapel services, giving a few basketball clinics, and playing a game against their high school basketball team. Christ's College is a unique college where about half of the students are believers and the other half are not. Many students are enrolled in the English program and we will have the opportunity to share with them at their chapel services as well as play a basketball game against their team. The last school we will be working with is Tzu-Chiang Elementary school. We will be inviting them to an all-day basketball clinic on Saturday, May 23rd that will be held at Christ's College.

colin_wyenbergFollow Along and Pray For Us!

I will be blogging every couple of days and I'll be sure to include plenty of pictures! This is a great opportunity and we would love if you would join us in praying that God would grant us opportunities to share His love with the people of Taipei.

Until next time...Zaijien!! (Good bye)
