Sometimes it’s hard to stay focused in ministry and we wonder where we should be putting our energy. Even worse, we stop wondering this.
Within a 20 minute radius of our church building we have college overload…
Here are the colleges/universities:
- Portland State
- University of Portland
- Lewis and Clark University
- Reed University
- Oregon Health and Science University
- George Fox University
- Concordia University
- Multnomah University
- Warner Pacific University
Then we have 14 different trade schools…art, mechanical, etc.
Then we have the following Portland Community College (PCC) campuses:
- Rock Creek
- Mt. Hood (about 30 minutes from our building)
The community colleges alone total over 80,000 students on campus.
This can cause confusion as to where to concentrate our time.
We have thoughts on this, but wondering, what are some guidelines that you use to focus your attention?
