Ministry Programs

Danae Stokes

Danae Stokes ’23
Youth and Educational Ministries

Danae Stokes was in her freshman year at Multnomah when, in the middle of a volleyball game, she suffered a broken ankle that took her out of the sport. Left with more time for reflection than she would have liked, Danae turned to God to make peace with her circumstances.

One day, Danae attended a campus event where someone brought up the topic of identity, reflecting on a story of another student-athlete who suffered a career-ending injury. The story resonated with Danae’s own experience. At that moment, Danae felt God reveal what He was trying to teach her through this challenging ordeal: her affirmation didn’t need to come through volleyball, it was already given to her as a child of God.
Danae wasn’t the only one left rattled by her injury. As an out of state student from Anchorage, Alaska, Danae’s mom understandably worried about sending her youngest off to college in a city over 2,400 miles away. On one memorable day, a fellow classmate of Danae’s walked over to her to ask if he could pray for her. Surprised by the compassion and care shown by her community, Danae called her mom. She uttered the words every parent hopes to hear, “Mom, I’m taken care of.” The classmate’s kindness and prayer, along with all the support and friendship Danae has experienced during her time at Multnomah, has stuck with her through college.

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.
