Our Vision

Portland Bible College is a Christian College and a ministry of Mannahouse committed to developing passionate leaders who know how to live in God’s presence and establish their lives on a clear set of biblical values that enable them to thrive in life and serve as influential leaders in their church and society.

Our Mission

Portland Bible College is an educational ministry of Mannahouse committed to the formation of servant-leaders for local churches and societies throughout the world. This will be accomplished through instruction in the Word of God, the development of godly character, and responsiveness to the Holy Spirit in the context of a Christian community in a local church setting.

Our Commitment to The Local Church

“The Church is the hope of the world, and it’s through the local church that God’s people are mobilized to extend the purposes of God to the whole earth. It’s through the Church that leaders are developed and raised up to influence and impact the world. Through the Church, the next generation will be transformed and be used by God to impact their world. It’s through the Church that fully devoted Christ followers will find creative and meaningful ways to worship God and experience His presence. It’s through the Church that men and women with a passion to touch places many of us have never even heard of will find purpose and fulfillment of those dreams.

For over fifty years the passion of Portland Bible College has been to partner with the Church to develop leaders in all areas of life that will influence, impact and transform their world. It’s really pretty simple: we’re committed to God’s vision for your life and the success of your local church! We invite you to come to be a part of Portland Bible College. Get trained and equipped to make those dreams God has in mind for you a reality!

Portland Bible College is a part of the heartbeat and call of Mannahouse. We are committed to training and equipping leaders to strengthen local churches and fulfill God’s purposes around the world.

Based at Mannahouse’s Rocky Butte Campus, Portland Bible College offers training in Pastoral Leadership, Worship & Creative Arts, Pastoral Counseling, and Youth Ministry along with a Humanities Program designed for university transfer. At Portland Bible College you’ll find a vibrant college campus where you will experience God’s presence, clearly understand His Word, walk with a team of staff and pastors committed to your success, and be equipped to fulfill God’s vision for your life!”
