PILGRIM PARTNERS in Mission: Joining in unity with other ministries & groups for the restoration of Portland & all of creation.
We believe the Church embodies and lives out the mission of God – to reconcile a fallen and broken world to God through the Good News of Jesus Christ. So, we don’t just “do missions” by occasionally sending a few highly motivated individuals as “missionaries.” Rather, in our every word and action we all seek to be agents of God’s love and reconciliation to those around us, both near and far. This is the call of every follower of Jesus.
We encourage everyone in Coastal to discover their unique “vocation” – a way of serving and investing themselves relationally; with their time, with their abilities and with the other resources available to them.
Whenever someone in Coastal commits to God’s work of reconciliation the whole body stands in support; through prayer, through encouragement, and in many cases, financially.
Below is a list of local and global organizations to which Coastal people are connected and committed, and with which we partner. To find out more about our Pilgrim Partners, please click on each name:
The Coastal vision is to be missional communities rooted in particular neighborhoods or boroughsand linked to missional initiatives in other neighborhoods.
As the authors of SLOW CHURCH put it: "When a small church from the suburbs comes together with an intentional community from the urban core,...we get a glimpse of the reconciled diversity that is at the heart of the kingdom of God." - C. Christopher Smith & John Pattison
