Christian Life Profile


If you’re going to branch out, you need deep roots

For more than 80 years, Multnomah University has equipped Christian students to love God and serve their neighbors wherever He leads. We’re passionate about embracing Christ’s love, pursuing biblical wisdom, serving others humbly, digging deep into Scripture, striving for excellence, and inspiring each other for careers of impact for the kingdom.

Cultivating faith in every program
Multnomah University offers more degrees and programs than ever before, preparing more students to pursue lives of adventurous faith. From Biology to Bible & Theology, professors and students discuss how Scripture impacts their careers or research. We believe the world needs compassionate servant leaders in every career, workplace, and marketplace that’s hiring. As we explore the Word of God, it transforms us and illuminates the lifelong journey of ceaseless discovery as we sound the depths of God’s wisdom and love. 

Seeking adventure in the Pacific Northwest
On our beautiful campus in Portland, Oregon, you’ll find adventure and a community like no other. Come explore our city and discover endless opportunities, good coffee, outdoor adventures, a unique culture, and a diverse community. Our hearts compel us to serve Christ and love our neighbors in the city. Multnomah University students get involved all over the city with local churches and nonprofit organizations serving the homeless, abused, and broken people of Portland. 

Discovering what we’re made for
At Multnomah University, you’ll be more than a student, more than a scholar, more than an athlete. We believe that you are made for more. You were made to explore creation, deepen your faith, and persevere no matter what life throws your way. We know that God is going to use you for His glory, and we want to help you write the next chapter of your story.

An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “At Multnomah University, you get a rigorous education with a deep, joyful walk with God. It revolutionized my life.”

    • Luis Palau ’61
  • “The professors became more like spiritual parents to me. They walk with you and really care about you. The seminary teaches you to live your theology. If you want to drink from that deep well, go to Multnomah.”

    • Ian Domaschofsky ’19
      Master of Divinity
  • “The heart of my program is wrestling with practical ways of loving people. It’s about God’s love for people because He loves them more than us. Our practical love alone won’t give people eternal satisfaction—only Jesus will.”

    • Zack Gillock ’18
      Master of Arts in Global Development & Justice
  • “One of the founders of Multnomah had this saying, ‘Fall in love with the savior.’ And the more I study Bible & Theology here, the more it orients me toward falling more in love with God.”
