AS IS CHURCH - A VISION TO IMPACT THIS CITY
The Hope Center | Kern Park Campus | Rockwood Campus
In 2011 Pastor Scott and Gwenna (and a handful of their friends) were called to plant AS IS Church and it was launched on Easter 2012. The ministry of AS IS Church has since grown to reach thousands of people with two campuses, weekly services, and ministries serving the greater Portland/Metro area.
The ministry of AS IS Church is building a community of resilient people whose lives have been redeemed by God’s love. The lives that are changed are not merely examples of God’s power to restore broken lives. The men, women and families we help also go on to share that love with others, to pass on the hope they have been given, and to make transformation possible for others.
At the heart of our vision is The Hope Center. For years we've prayed that God would provide a permanent home to resource our campuses and communities. God has answered that prayer through the merger with Kern Park Christian Church (located in the center of Portland).
Our mission is to connect broken people to a community of support by offering resources and services that address immediate and long-term needs.
