"The beauty and promise of Portland contradicts the dark spiritual shroud over the area. Portland is a post-modern, non-Christian outpost. Tolerance is touted as a virtue over truth.

Mission: We will be partnering with NAMB Church planters to help evangelize the inner city of Portland. This ministry can include any of the following: passing out flyers, talking with individuals along the street, hosting block parties, cleaning/organizing local schools, encouraging the local congregation in their efforts to reach the city, and much more. Learning about the city and being flexible to do the work needed by the church planters is a vital part of this ministry.
