Partnering with the City to House Folks without Homes
In today’s final conversation of season two of Rumors of Doing Good podcast, Ken & Rob are joined by Josh Hawk who helps lead St. Johns Church in Portland Oregon which was born when two local churches merged together when they realized they were better together than apart. With limited resources, they made a decision to partner with the city of Portland to provide a stable tiny house community for the most vulnerable in order to fulfill their calling to love their neighbors.
Josh Hawk is an avid snowboarder born and raised in St Johns of North Portland, Oregon where he resides with his wife and three kids. He is currently a co-pastor of St Johns Church which began in late 2020 when two deeply rooted North Portland churches joined together. St. Johns Wesleyan Church and St. Johns Christian Church, two churches who have been steady and dependable in the St. Johns neighborhood for around a century, decided to bring together their gifts and vision in order to better serve Jesus.
