John Mark Comer Books

I live in the urban core of Portland, OR, with my wife Tammy and our three kids – Jude, Moses and Sunday. Portland is this great city in the Pacific Northwest buzzing with culture - food, drink, coffee, indie bands, and lots of depressed people. I love it.I'm the pastor for teaching and vision at Bridgetown Church, right in the center of the city by Powell's Books - best bookstore ever! Our church is built around the idea of "practicing the way of Jesus, together, in Portland." We believe the way of Jesus is just that: a way, of life. And it takes practice in community to make it into a reality. I'm also the author of a couple books: My name is Hope, Loveology, Garden City, and most recently, God has a Name. I did my Masters at Western Seminary, which was a great ride. Hoping to get back on the education bandwagon soon. If any my work is helpful to you, great. My life's ambition is to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what he did. My prayer is that the stuff I write helps you do the same.
