Multnomah University provides you the tools and support to grow your faith in a Christ-centered community and to live out your faith in an impactful way.
Life At MU
Our mission is to invite students into a deeper experience of God’s love by creating opportunities for spiritual growth through reflection, discovery, and daily practice.
Weekly chapel services are a highlight on campus to gather together to worship and hear from God's Word.
Build relationships and deepen your faith during our weekly student-led worship experience. Every Tuesday evening at 6 p.m., students gather to worship in The Den.
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.
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.
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.
Spiritual Life Conferences are an important part of our chapel schedule and provide you the opportunity to explore your interests in depth.
The Christian Life Conference (CLC):
Set forth by MU’s founder, Dr. Mitchell, the CLC starts the year off strong. From September 25-29, MU will be partnering with New Wine, New Wineskins, and we will be focusing on biblical themes and practical application.
The Global Missions Conference (GMC):
In partnership with the Global Studies program and co-facilitated by the Spiritual Life team and the GMC volunteer team, GMC offers students several opportunities to meet mission organization representatives and to hear about God’s work throughout the world.
Conference attendance for chapel credit:
Conference attendance is a part of our institutional chapel requirements. For each conference, students will have a minimum of 10 chapel credit opportunities and will be required to attend at least 5. Any credits gained beyond 5 will go toward their overall chapel attendance requirement of 30.
