Who We Are
The Fellowship at Bend exists to glorify God, edify the body, and testify of Him.
We are a church in Bend, Oregon that is steadfast in the Apostle’s doctrine, the breaking of bread, fellowship, and in prayer. Our mission is to be a church growing in faith, hope, and love, with a passion for making disciples for our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. Acts 2:42, 1 Cor. 13:13, Matt. 28:19-20
The Fellowship at Bend was started on April 4, 2004, when Lead Pastor Loren Anderson was called by the Lord to move to Bend with his family to plant a church. Loren began pastoral ministry at Applegate Christian Fellowship, where he attended the ACF School of Ministry and was involved with youth ministry for 8 years. The church has grown from a small family to over 500 people that gather weekly.
