    Adam Phillips
    founding pastor

    Adam Phillips started Christ Church: Portland with the abiding conviction that all people are included in all the things that Jesus was about. He has been at the forefront of holistic faith-rooted organizing around poverty, working with organizations like The ONE Campaign, World Vision & Bread for the World. A graduate of The Ohio State University and North Park Theological Seminary, Adam drew national attention when he and Christ Church were kicked out of their previous denomination around LGBTQ inclusion. He and his wife Sarah are raising a Pomeranian puppy named Morrissey.
