Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Missions at SW Hills focuses locally and globally with the intent of facilitating varied mission partners while maintaining sensitivity to God's leading for both individuals and whole teams. This maximizes our opportunities to participate in varied ministries while drawing on the vast treasure of gifts and skills God has developed among us. We also encourage individuals at SW Hills to engage in local ministries as God calls them to serve alongside our missionary partners around the greater Portland area. We also look forward to raising up and sending out individuals who will consider extended internships of six months to a year or even full-time service.
