Seth and Karen and their two children arrived in Portland Oregon in August of 2013 with a dream to start a Church in the city. They moved into NE Portland in 2016 and started hosting Sunday night dinners at their home on NE 26th Ave. On October 1st, 2017, Seth and Karen and a launch team of 35 people founded C3 Church in NE Portland. The first Sunday Service was held at Concordia University Portland.
In February of 2018, C3 Church NE Portland moved into its current permanent facility at 5740 NE Portland Highway. There are now weekly Sunday services, mid week connect groups, children's and youth ministries and a food pantry providing food and clothing to over 1,000 people a month. With the church planting journey just beginning, Seth and Karen are confident in knowing that this is only the beginning of the amazing things God wants to do in the beautiful city of Portland!
