Dave and Thanh live in old Victorian house in the heart of Portland with four other young men in their mid-twenties. The six of them have intentionally committed to following Christ and making a difference in the city. Dave and Thanh are also are a part of the Discipleship group that I (Matt) lead every Sunday night.
Last Saturday night this community of men hosted a Christmas party and invited everyone in their network of relationships. I was amazed to see a packed house and the Christ-centered community being fostered amongst 20-somethings from across the city. There were people new to Portland and people that grew up here. There were followers of Christ and friends who don’t know Jesus. There were a myriad of organizations, churches and workplaces represented. It was a great environment and great conversations…all because these men are seeking to follow Christ in the city and make a difference for the kingdom of God.
Thanks so much for being a part of our lives and part of the ministry here in Portland. During this season of Advent, we pray that your life is filled with peace and wonder at the glorious riches of our savior.
