Designed for grades 6-12, we try to create unique environments for spiritual growth using powerful worship, profound teaching and small group dynamics.
Portland Youth Conference has been in existence since 1997. Since the beginning we have tried to connect students to Christ in a culture that doesn't see the need for a Savior.
Mike Kennedy lives in the pacific northwest with his beautiful wife, Stephanie. They have two amazing children who are both using their talents to praise Jesus and build up God’s Kingdom. They also have two energetic grandsons who fill their lives with joy. In 1988, God led Mike to attend Northwest College of the Bible and prepare for ministry. After he graduated, Mike served as a youth minister for 10 years in Portland, Oregon. In 2001,
he accepted the call to preach for the Minnehaha Church of Christ in Vancouver, Washington and he has been there ever since.
Mike is also a professor at Northwest College of the Bible.
In addition to his ministry in the church, Mike also serves the community by driving a school bus for the Vancouver School District. Over the years God has worked through Mike’s ministries in the church and in the community to lead dozens of young people to Christ.
Recently, Mike wrote Bi-vocational Ministry for the Sake of the Gospel, a book explaining how the gospel can make any ministry effective and fulfilling.
