The Church that God, Faith and Families Built – Celebrates 50 Years of Service

Five decades ago in the fall of 1966 three acres of land southwest of Tigard, Oregon were purchased for the future site of the Tigard Church of God.  It would take another two years before the new church building was completed and dedicated in a service that marked the beginning of 50 Years of serving the Lord in the greater Tigard area.

But it all began much earlier that year in 1966 when an inspired group of families from Richmond Church of God, Aloha Church of God and Holladay Park Church of God, began meeting on Wednesday evenings in the home of Del and Ginny Kuns to explore the idea of forming a new congregation somewhere on the west side of Portland. With encouragement from Arthur Ely, Pastor of Richmond and Drs. Mack and Irene Caldwell representing the Oregon Evangelistic Committee, the newly formed congregation held its first Sunday Morning Worship and Sunday School in their temporary quarters in the Tigard Community Hall as soon as the second Sunday in April.  Dr. Caldwell served as the first Pastor followed by Nelson Pierce, first full-time Pastor.  And the rest is history.

Today, 50 Years after that first group of faithful believers met with a combined vision to see the gospel preached and personified in the Tigard-area through the lives of all its members, the Tigard Church of God continues to look to the future with renewed vision and passion to serve Jesus Christ our Lord in the greater Tigard community.

Celebrating its 50th Year – the family of the Tigard Church of God invites ALL families of the Church of God to join us in a “Celebration Weekend on July 30 – 31, 2016” to mark this milestone in our history.  Our special guests and speaker for the celebration will be Patrick and Jamie Nachtigall.
