History

Hofen Family.png

Mission Church was founded in 2007 as Pastor Brent and his family moved to Bend, Oregon to start a brand new church. 

The heart and calling of Mission Church is to eventually plant eleven campuses that help to touch hearts and change lives all throughout the Pacific Northwest. We are on our way to this goal with a campus in Bend (planted 2007), Redmond (2012), online (2014), Madras (2016), and Portland (2018). We aim to partner with the Spirit in planting in his timing, and help to connect people's stories to God's purpose throughout the Northwest.
