THIS WEEK'S SERMON

A Creative Minority

March 07, 2021

Does it sometimes feel like you should have lived in a time when the world was better; when people were kinder and morals, beliefs, and righteousness were honorable? Do you feel like the world around you is becoming harder to recognize and finding your place in all the change is hard?

There once was a man named Daniel who was ripped from the world he knew and thrown into a culture that was unrecognizable to him. What he did then was unlike most. He didn't run, he didn't conform, and he didn't hide. He lived in it. He thrived in it. He kept his faith, morals, and righteousness while influencing the world around him toward the source of his very life. How do we learn from him? How do we come to grips with what Daniel knew... that, You Were Made For These Times

Our Story

Learn about our journey in planting a presence in our city

2014

Launch

Rise launched in March of 2014 meeting in the Fairview Community Center in Fairview, OR. Within 6 months we outgrew that space and started meeting on Sunday nights at Mountainvew Church in Gresham. 

2016

Vision Clarity

In 2016 we took huge steps towards clarifying our vision to rise up and saturate our city with the Gospel. This means all over our city, you see followers of Jesus rising up to their true calling to bring the presence of Jesus to every corner of our community. 

2017

Multiply

In 2016 we multiplied into two services on Sunday nights. This allows us to reach and connect with more people in our city.

2018

Future Home

In 2018 we purchased our future home right in the middle of Gresham. The hand of God moved in powerful ways to allow us to purchase the former SkateWorld. 

2019

Ministry Impact

2019 was filled with incredible fruit. From 70 people entering the waters of baptism, to our largest Rise Kids Camp ever, to tangible partnerships with community outreach like My Father's House and laundry love. 

2020

Adaptation

2020 hasn't gone like any of us had planned. But the ministry and mission must go forward. In September of 2020 Rise launched house churches as a new method in the midst of an unprecedented season.
