A CHURCH FOR NORTHEAST PORTLAND
Sojourn is a new church forming in northeast Portland that focuses on three main things: gospel, family, and mission. We do this by extending an invitation to those around us; regardless of race, gender, socio-economic status, or culture; to join us by experiencing the freedom and family at the table of Jesus. The message is clear that Jesus has come for all people, young and old, the displaced, those on the margins, people who've made a mess of their lives, and those that are ordinary. Jesus has come for you. At this table you will find a place to belong, a journey to be taken, where all things are being made new and united by Jesus. We hope that you consider joining us as we take this journey.
INNER NORTHEAST PORTLAND
Our primary focus is the neighborhoods that make up the area known as inner northeast Portland, which has its own distinct look and feel from the rest of the city. The East side of Portland makes up 80% of the city population, and inner NE is an area with roughly 110,000 people. This area encompasses some notable districts like Alberta Arts District, Mississippi Avenue, Hollywood, and Lloyd District. The largest education institution in Oregon, Portland Community College, is located in NE Portland with nearly 78,000 students enrolled annually; and Concordia University is nearby with 7,000 students. The neighborhoods of Northeast Portland make up the most diverse area of the city, but also one that has been splintered in recent years by the ever-changing city. We are a church that wants to reflect the diversity found here and we welcome everyone to join us.
