Since 2003, Ascension Lutheran Church in Portland, Oregon, has organized and facilitated an LCMS National Servant Event each summer. This missional service opportunity gives high school youth a chance to go and share Jesus Christ, serve children from the low-income Rockwood community, homeless teens in downtown Portland, disabled adults, and other organizations in need.

We have 60 spaces for servants which are filling up on a first come, first served basis. Consider sending a group from your church – a soccer background or experience is not necessary for attending!

Those impacted by this event…

  • Kids in Rockwood and their families

    • We run a soccer clinic for 3 to 14-year-olds from the culturally diverse, low-income neighborhood next to our church

    • Areas of service include sharing Jesus with unbelievers, supervising children through soccer drills, helping with various tasks for the event, and serving families by helping their kids

  • Homeless teens, disabled adults, and others

    • Dinners are prepared for the homeless and disabled while interacting with the people in need

    • Areas of service include sharing Jesus with unbelievers, dinner preparation, serving food, and connecting with hurting people

  • High School Servants experience:

    • Missional outreach – sharing Jesus through words and deeds

    • Bible study and devotion each day, applying these biblical principles to real life situations

    • Diversity and life outside the Church

    • Community building with each other – making friends for life

    • Prayer and worship

    • Leadership skills

Your youth will never forget how God works in their lives and the lives of others.
