Our mission is to enrich the lives of our children and youth physically, educationally, and spiritually.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” And he laid his hands on them and went away.
Our Vision is for Portland to be a productive community with a generation that is equipped to face life’s challenges with a deep rooted understanding of who Christ is and what he has done for them.
For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.
