John Mark Comer

I live in 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 if you’ve ever been to Portland). Our church is built around the very simple idea of practicing the way of Jesus, together, in Portland. We believe that the way of Jesus is exactly that, a way of life.

I’m also the author of a few books; My Name is Hope, Loveology, Garden City, God has a Name, and my newest: The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry.

As for education, I have a Masters Degree in Biblical and Theological Studies from Western Seminary, and am currently at work on a Doctorate in Spiritual Formation through Fuller Seminary and the Dallas Willard Center.

If any of the stuff on this site is helpful to you, great. My life’s ambition is to be with Jesus, become like him, and do what he did. My prayer is that the stuff I make helps you do the same
