Preaching and pies in Portland

Pastor Mark, Pastor Dave, and I had the opportunity to visit Mars Hill Portland for a Mission & Vision Night. The church was packed with families excited for what God is doing and eager to hear from the leaders on what is happening across all our churches and locally. The church has grown to almost 700 people in its first year under the leadership of Pastors Tim Smith and Ryan Mount. Volunteers also brought in over 90 pies! We couldn’t be more encouraged with how this local church family is doing.

Pastor Mark talked about how he wanted to make sure Portland knows they’re family. Even though he’s not close geographically, he loves this church as Paul did with all the churches of the New Testament. He also told them he hopes to be preaching at Mars Hill for 40 years, he’s not going anywhere. When he travels, he hears about the love others have for Portland and how people pray for their church often.

After Pastor Mark spoke, people hung around for two hours to share fellowship and meet the executive elders. We also took part in eating some of the pies. We look forward to seeing what God will do in the Willamette Valley in the coming months.

Pastor Mark gets to know some of the younger members of the families at the Portland church.

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

What to Expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be nerve-racking. But having an idea of what to expect can help. There are three main parts to every Sunday service: preaching, worship, and kids. To learn more about each of these, click the links below.

The Mars Hill Guide Leadership at Mars Hill

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.
