North Portland Bible College


Last Saturday afternoon Linda and I attended the 25th Anniversary Celebration of North Portland Bible College. NPBC is a community-based, inter-denominational, evangelical school with classes offered primarily in the evenings to accommodate employed students. It offers both an associate degree program and four certificate programs. The board, faculty and student body at NPBc are multi-ethnic and multi-denominational. Course content often provides a foundation for racial and religious reconciliation and positive cross-cultural relationships.The amazing thing is that this small inner-city Bible College has been providing an excellent education for those who often times for multiple reasons a unable to attend other learning institutions. NPBC has trained and equipped literally hundreds of men and women for kingdom ministry. This is a school has served with excellence in the midst of adversity, both physical and financial, serving as a model for what God can with limited resources.

I viewed a video presentation of testimonies from various individuals who had been served by what NPBC offers, who now serve the kingdom of God across the globe. It was just amazing to see what God had done over 25 years with mostly volunteer people and resources. Linda and I were blessed to share in this wonderful celebration. They are looking forward to a wonderful future as God continues to bless.

In addition to all this, I have the privilege of Teaching New Testament this 2007-2008 school year at this beacon of light. I am so looking forward to what the Lord will do in this segment of my journey with Him.
