Anawim Christian Community is a community church made up of the homeless and the mentally ill. Our main goal is to provide for people's needs (including the need to be a disciple of Jesus) where they are at. We don't feel that a person needs to be something different before they get the help they need. Our center is in Gresham OR, which is where we lead and organize day shelters and a worship service. We also have a community house in N. Portland where housing is being provided for a few people and opportunities for community worship. We are connected to ministries in SE Portland and St. Johns, where we distribute food and clothing. And finally, through the internet, we educate people from almost every country in the world about homelessness, mental illness and the Christian response to each.

The voice that is loud and raging,

Like the roar of a lion,
Is not the voice of our loving God,
That is quiet and soft, 
Like the wind on a light and breezy day.

Our dreams He can see clearly,
Dreams that we have that He wants
     made to be reality.
A loving God He is; so loving and true,
A God we can count on through and through.

Only the voice of God can bring
The peace that comes from Him,
The Peace that is like no Peace
That the world can give.

 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. -- Hebrews 13:8
