AllOne is group of church leaders in the Clackamas area who value relationships. Originally brought together by their common interest in the North Clackamas School District, they have since united to pray, plan, and work together to serve and bring healing to the community God has placed them in. 

Their first collaborative project was in 2014, in partnership with Embrace Oregon. They oversaw 13 churches focusing on one project: a makeover of the local Department of Human Services (DHS) building in Clackamas operated by the state of Oregon. Yes, the church serving in the state offices! 

With many needs in their local schools and the overall community, the leadership team meets together to screen opportunities presented to the group. Once a project is selected, they inform those churches that have expressed interest in serving together as part of these AllOne initiatives.

Simply knowing and caring about the needs in their community opened the door for this partnership that became AllOne. Modeling themselves after a similar group in the St John’s area, the leaders of AllOne encourage other local faith leaders to form their own regional partnerships centered on the needs and families of a nearby school district.  

SPN congratulates the leaders of AllOne and prays that God will continue to bless their efforts to serve their local community.
