Missions

When Southwest Church of Christ began, it was determined that the first 10 percent of contributions would be dedicated to missions. This same spirit has continued through the years, and now Southwest dedicates 15 percent of contributions to mission work.

Right here in Tigard, Oregon

There is no greater mission field than right outside our own doors. Through many of our ministries we reach others by showing the heart of Jesus.  Through belief in Him many have been led to commit their lives to Him in baptism.
