How to Apply

We invite you to contact us

The members of the Presidential Search Committee, along with the administration, staff, and faculty of Multnomah University, share the belief that God knows who should be the next president of Multnomah. We do not mean this in an abstract sense of broadly defined omniscience, but in a very personal sense where His Spirit is already at work to bring leader and school together.

If you are reading this, you are actively engaged in that process. Would you please prayerfully consider if you are that leader? If you believe God is saying that you may be, please apply by submitting your resume or CV (with a mailing address, preferred contact phone number, and secure email) to the search committee in care of for confidential consideration.
