Seminary’s Gupta presents spring faculty lecture March 5

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

All are invited to the 2019 Spring Faculty Lecture on Tuesday, March 5, at 6 p.m. in Hoover 105. 

Nijay K.Gupta’s lecture, “People of Faith: Why the First Christians Called Themselves ‘Believers,'” will focus on why followers of Jesus adopted the label “believers” in reference to their identity, and even referred to their religion as “the faith.” What significance did this pose for them? Was it primarily about “beliefs,” or something more? Gupta will explore these important historical questions and also address the relevance this discussion has for Christian identity today.

Gupta is the recipient of the 2017-18 Faculty Achievement Award for Graduate Research and Scholarship and is an associate professor of New Testament at Portland Seminary. 

Come early, between 5 and 6 p.m., and check out the work of our Richter Student Scholars and Steinfeldt Peace Scholars at a symposium in the Hoover lobby. Students will present their research and peace projects in a conversational poster format. Refreshments will be served.

Questions? Contact Laurie Fair at lfair@georgefox.edu.

Weather-related campus closure information

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Winter is here. Following is our process for announcing campus closure information. The provost will make the decision whether or not to close the Newberg campus, Portland Center and Salem site for daytime classes by 6:30 a.m. or 2:15 p.m. for evening classes. This applies to all days of the week, including Saturday. Decisions at the Redmond site will be made by the professor.

Major considerations are road conditions, ice, utility service disruption, and how long the severe weather or emergency is likely to last. To find out if a closure decision has been made when bad weather occurs:

  1. Visit the George Fox flashalert.net page at http://flashalert.net/news.html?id=32 (This is the first site updated)
  2. Listen to local radio and television stations. Each campus will be identified separately. (This info comes from Flashalert).
  3. Call the George Fox University switchboard at 503-538-8383.

More information on campus closure policies can be found at georgefox.edu/closure.
