Rose Church exists to be a home that looks like heaven.

Our MISSION

Our mission is to build BIG people: becoming like Jesus, in community, while growing in faith.

our history

Rose Church started with 22 people in a living room in Vancouver, WA in 2017. The church launched in February 2018 at the Bossanova Ballroom. The church grew, God did great things and at 18 months old the church was offered to buy an old building in the Laurelhurst neighborhood. The church gathered and rallied to buy a building at our two year anniversary. And ever since then we have been committed to building big people in God, doing what Jesus did. Rose Church is committed to building the church, families, changing the city, and continuing to grow to reach Portland metro.
