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.
