Connect with Other Christians

Discovering the depth and complexity of life with Jesus in difficult, and nothing bolsters our resolve to pursue faithfulness more than learning together with a community of believers.

Older and younger, men and women: people from all walks and backgrounds who will listen to doubts and questions without hostility or rejection are invaluable. We believe that a “disciple” is a learner at his or her core, so we work to spur one another on toward continuous growth and maturity in Christ. 

Because we believe that people sharpen one another in the same way that iron sharpens iron, pastors and teachers from our community offer different seminars, courses and discussion groups throughout the year. Please check back often to get an updated glimpse of what’s going on.

Tuesday Morning Bible Study

This is an in-depth Bible study with practical life application, currently engaging with the Gospel of John. Our Senior Pastor, Ben Tertin, is teaching this year, and he loves to bring the complex nuances and abstractions of biblical literature down to the concrete streets of real life here in Portland. We have lively discussions, and all are absolutely welcome to jump in.
