There are over 3,000 Karen Refugees living in the Portland, OR metro area. Rockwood Adventist is currently working with more than 50 refugees in providing them a place to worship their Creator, developing community and offering access to Seventh-day Adventist Christian education for their children.
Our Karen Language Church planter helps families from all faith backgrounds access community resources, provides transportation to both Portland Adventist Elementary School and Portland Adventist Academy, and provides spiritual counseling and Bible studies. In addition he works each week to train and equip the youth who lead in their weekly Sabbath School programs and their corporate worship service. We are also working to organize groups in the Seattle, Tri-Cities, Spokane, and Boise metro areas.
Our goal is to raise $30,000 annually to support this growing ministry. Please prayerfully consider supporting our work to bring hope and wholeness to the Karen Refugees living in southeast Portland.
