Spiritual Integration

From Biology to Bible and Theology, professors and students discuss how Scripture impacts their career or research. We believe our life in the Spirit and our calling in the world should not be separated. We believe that the world needs compassionate servant-leaders in every career, workplace, marketplace that is hiring. We see opportunities for the gospel in more places than ever before.

On-campus Opportunities

Students are formed spiritually through Chapel, volunteer service, prayer meetings, Bible studies, circle groups, clubs, and worship events. Our spiritual focus goes beyond programs and events into the life-on-life friendships that grow in the residence hall and in the coffee shop. It is in and through our community that we point each other to Jesus with word and deed.

Chapel Worship

In the City

Our hearts compel us to serve Christ and love our neighbors in the city. Portland is filled with exciting experiences and activities, but it also contains places that need light. Multnomah students get involved with nonprofits and organizations serving the homeless, abused, and broken people of Portland. Our campus community is invested and involved in local churches throughout the area. We celebrate the numerous gospel-centered communities of faith who love to disciple and worship with college students.
