One of Mount View's more unique ministries, the Street Evangelism Ministry is also one of our most diverse and broad-based. Once a month, Mount View takes a team of volunteers into Portland to minister to the homeless. Armed with sack lunches, warm clothes and blankets, and gospel tracts, the team tries to bring a little relief to those on the streets while sharing the love of Christ. To make this happen, Mount View has put together a team effort whereby the church family can participate in a wide range of areas. Some donate items to take to the homeless, others volunteer their time to make sandwiches or assemble the supplies, and still others volunteer to take these things into Portland. As a result of these joint efforts, the gospel message has been extended to those living on the streets and often forgotten by traditional evangelistic methods.
