HOTEL Ministry (which stands for “Healing Others Through Evangelistic Love”) exists to share Christ’s love with those living in Portland’s low-income apartment buildings downtown. Each month, teams of dedicated servants from local supporting churches provide meals, groceries, visitations, Bible studies, and much more!
Heart of the HOTEL
It all begins with love and trust. At the heart of the HOTEL ministry is our deep desire to build meaningful, empowering relationships with Portland’s poor. We desire to know each individual as the unique person that God created, and we aim to walk alongside them and help them meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Our inspiration comes from our personal relationships with Jesus Christ and the transformation that He brought about in each one of us. But we do not limit our services to Christians only or require anyone to attend any of our dinners, Bible studies and more. All of our services are totally free and open to residents of all faiths and we pursue relationships with all.
