Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? Jesus responded: To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these commandments. - Jesus
Part of being a follower of Jesus is learning to love our neighbor. We believe this includes the orphans and widows of our City (James 1:27). Each missional community intentionally adopts some part of Portland to serve or partners with a non-profit organization that cares for those in great need.
We currently have on-going partnerships with organizations like Goose Hollow Family Shelter, SW HOPE, Hayhurst Elementary, Mary Rieke Elementary, Compassion SW, and Neighborhood House.
SERVING & APPRENTICESHIP
We believe Missio thrives as a community when everyone is using their gifting and resources to bless people and glorify God. If you have a strong desire to grow in areas of missional leadership or might want to serve during the Sunday gatherings, please contact us so we can share how you can volunteer on a regular basis at Missio.
