About Song of Hope Church
Pastor Ronald Bronski, an Associate Pastor at Mt. Olivet Baptist Church for 11 years, believed that the Lord had called him to plant a church in Vancouver. On January 1, 2007 Song of Hope Church was officially born.
Our mission is to win souls and make disciples. Pastor Bronski and the leadership at Song of Hope Church have a vision of becoming a community of active believers modeled after the Acts 2 church.
Song of Hope Church is a multi-cultural / multi-generational church. Everyone iswelcome. We are small in number, but big in our confidence toward our Lord Jesus Christ who we know to be faithful and true. Anything that Song of Hope may accomplish will be to the glory of God, as we know that apart from HIM we can do nothing.
We invite you to come and participate with us as we embark on this journey of impossibility with great joy and anticipation, watching with eyes of faith to see just how God will write this Song of Hope.
In conclusion, just as Philip told Nathaniel regarding Jesus, we invite you to "come and see" what God is doing at Song of Hope Church.
Our Roots at Song of Hope Church
We at Song of Hope Church believe that roots are important. Everyone came from someone and every local church came from another local church. Consequently, we have decided to include some of the history of the church we came from. That church is Mt. Olivet Baptist Church located in Portland, Oregon.
Mt. Olivet was organized in 1907, when a small group of African Americans successfully persuaded the American Baptist Home Mission Society to grant them a contract of organization. For the next eighty years, Mt. Olivet served as a spiritual home for many families in the Portland/Vancouer area.
In November 1987, Dr. James E. Martin, of Bluefield, West Virgina, became the Senior Pastor. The church grew significantly under the leadership of Pastor Martin and in 1993 moved to its present location at 8501 N. Chautauqua Blvd. The church continues to make a tremendous spiritual impact on the Portland/Vancouver area.
