I’m grateful for the chance I had to mobilize more than 500 people to help serve and bless our city recently. It was humbling to be a part of what God is up to in Rockwood by partnering with a number of churches and organizations who labor in ministry here in the city. What a joy to see God at work and see people lives changed that day. I have a lot of hope for one of the most difficult neighborhoods in Portland.
We knocked on close to 4000 doors. We completed about 900 surveys. We had 500 spiritual conversations and saw 11 people place their faith in Christ. We handed off almost a hundred contacts to local churches to follow up. Oh, and we picked up hundreds of pounds of garbage.
Watch this video for a great summary of Rockwood Knocks. You’ll hear directly from my friend Brad Ketch of the Rockwood Community Development Corporation who I worked directly with in planning this event.
