Bible Programs

Ryan Nolan ’21
Bible and Theology, Minor in Church
Youth Pastor, Mountain Park Church

Ryan Nolan came to Multnomah after the institution he was attending closed. Left with two more years to finish his Bible degree, he moved back to his home state of Oregon to finish college.
Combining his interest in biblical studies and ministry, Ryan pursued a major in Bible and Theology with a minor in Church Leadership. During his first term, a difficult series of personal events derailed his academic trajectory. That’s when being at a small school made all the difference. In his words, “The biggest thing, looking back, was I did feel seen… they cared more about who I was as a person than my grades or my money. They cared about me, and were able to create individual game plans.” With the support of the Counseling Center, Student Success, and his professors, Ryan was able to find his footing and ultimately graduate in 2021.
It took tenacity and consistency, but today, Ryan uses his passion for ministry to serve as a youth pastor for Mountain Park Church, located in the suburbs of Portland.

Why Study at Multnomah?

Founded in 1936 as Multnomah School of the Bible, we believe your education should be grounded in Scripture. We seek to draw closer to God’s Word in every aspect of your experience — in classes, athletics, and especially your time in community with friends and professors.

Among our faculty are world-renowned biblical scholars, business experts, master science communicators, and more. However, it’s their commitment and care for their students that make them stand above the rest. With opportunities for faculty mentorship, your professors will be there for you at every step of your educational experience.

Portland is a beautiful and vibrant city in the Pacific Northwest. With oceans to the west, mountains to the east, and world-class food just blocks away, you’ll have easy access to anything you want to explore. Service also lies at the heart of Multnomah, and living in Portland brings opportunities to engage with the community through university events like Day of Outreach.

With an undergraduate population just under 400 students, you get to truly know your classmates, and we like it that way. Our close-knit community creates opportunities for discipleship, lifelong friendship, and developing connections that will facilitate your career and personal development for the rest of your life.

Sometimes you need more than great professors, caffeine, and friends to get you through college. That’s where our campus resources come in to play. Multnomah is equipped with a student counseling and wellness center that provides Christ-centered, culturally responsive, psychologically sound therapy. Additionally, we provide a student success center, career services, and disability resources.
