About Our Ministry

Real hope for Tigard.

We're a small community of broken people learning how to live in God's grace. We've all stepped through pain, treaded on uncertainty and felt like we were drowning in doubt.

Yet while we were still powerless — before we could even attempt to fix our problems ourselves — God came and rescued us. (Romans 5:6-8)

This is the hope we have.

Our Pastor

Pastor Paul Bourman cannot remember a time in his life when he did not want to serve people in the role as their pastor. He even attended a high school to start on that path called Luther Preparatory School. He continued his studies for the pastoral ministry at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, where he received a Bachelor of Arts. Two weeks after graduation, he married his high school sweetheart, Charis.

Upon graduation he completed his graduate studies at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI. During these years of studies, Paul and Charis became parents to their two children — Theo and Adeline. He graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2020. After graduation, he was called to be the church planting pastor of Hope Lutheran Church here in Tigard.

He enjoys running, roasting coffee, hanging out with his wife and kids, and exploring all the beauty that Oregon has to offer. Mostly though, he just wants to love people, invest in those relationships, and hold to the promises of Jesus with them.

What we teach at Hope.

What we believe and teach is rooted in God's perfect Word — The Bible. Because we know it never changes, we know we can put our hope in it.

What to Expect at Hope

Visiting somewhere you've never been can be an awkward experience. We don't want your first visit to Hope to be weird. Here's a few things you can expect when you attend a worship service:


We're a come-as-you-are kind of crowd.

Outside and in. We don't have a dress code and we want to create a community of authenticity, honesty and love.

Worship that connects with God.

Songs, Bible readings, prayers, and confessions that connect us to the love and forgiveness that God promises us in his Word.


A message that goes from head to heart.

A Jesus-centered message that engages our minds on the level of our modern world, and that sinks the hope that we have through Jesus deep into our hearts. 


Hope is for kids, too.

Bring your kids! We love welcoming families to worship together. There will always be a special message just for kids, and we don't expect little ones to sit still or be quiet-as-mice throughout the service. Everyone is welcome at Hope.


We'd love to meet you outside of Sunday morning.

Really, we would! We get it, Sundays can be an intimidating time to be a visitor.

Reach out through our contact form, and we'll set up a time to meet virtually on Zoom, for coffee in person (our treat!) or join us for a support group or community service activity.
