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.
