A new type of school partner

In the Portland area, church and school partnerships are becoming more and more common. The effectiveness of these partnerships in impacting students, teachers, and staff of public schools has inspired the faith community to action, especially the students at Horizon Christian High School and Westside Christian School. These two unique partnerships were the subject of a recent article in The Times-Tigard, Tualatin, & Sherwood.

Christian Ministries on Our School Campuses

Youth for Christ (YFC) reaches young people by working with the local church to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus. Ministries include: Campus Life, Deaf Teen Quest, YFC Camp, and much more.

Young Life welcomes students from middle school to college age. Young Life's multicultural ministry, focused on kids in diverse cultural communities and those in economically-depressed areas, is arguably the largest of its kind in the United States.

Your Community Care Projects Made a Difference!

During July and August, local churches made incredible efforts to serve public schools. Churches across the region participated in "Community Care Days" sponsored by their local school districts. 


The "AGAPE BLITZ" is a service project which began 7 years ago as a one-day service project organized by the Agape Church of Christ that has grown into six weeks of service. Over the years the AGAPE BLITZ has worked with community based organizations like schools, non-profit organizations, and women's shelters.
