In the summer of 2016, Sam and Kelsey Wake decided to answer the calling they felt on their life, to lead a church start in the city of Portland, Oregon. In June of 2017, the Wakes and their close friends, Quentin and Renee Bemis, moved across the country from southern Indiana into the central city of Portland, Oregon. The Bemis and Wake family were not alone in their endeavors because God had gone ahead of them and rallied 19 other people to join them in their quest. This small community of faith sold their belongings, their homes, quit jobs, changed schools in order to pave the way for Movement. . After two years of dreaming, learning, and planning, we are planning to launch the church in the fall of 2019.
God has continued to be faithful to the calling he has placed before Movement and we are full of anticipation for how God will use our community to participate in his kingdom building activity here in Portland, Oregon.
