About Our People

MaryKate Morse (Seminary) published a book this spring, Lifelong Leadership: Woven Together through Mentoring Communities (NavPress). In it, she offers a comprehensive mentoring community model to support and develop Christian leaders for the lifetime of their calling. This communal and formational approach to mentoring leaders was field-tested and proven to be effective in diverse cultures and faith contexts. 

Don Powers (Biology) and four colleagues published an article, “Hummingbird torpor in context: duration, more than temperature, is the key to nighttime energy savings,” in the May 2020 issue of the Journal of Avian Biology. The piece was the cover subject of the publication, dedicated to empirical and theoretical research in ornithology.

Paul also preached two Zoom sermons for Spokane Friends Church in April and May, and he spoke at the McMinnville Presbyterian Church on “A Quest for Jesus – One that Includes the Gospel of John.
