Pastors Mark and Tim shoot the breeze

Mars Hill was small, often homeless, and just getting started when Pastor Mark and Tim Smith met over 14 years ago at a conference in New Mexico. Whatever was said that day, Pastor Tim felt called to join Mars Hill, move with his wife across the country to live with Pastor Mark and Grace and head up worship at the church, the fruit of which today is Mars Hill Music. Pastor Tim served as the longtime worship pastor at the Ballard church, and then for a few years at the Bellevue one, before being called to head down to his native Oregon to lead the Portland church.

A lot has changed over the years. When Pastor Mark was recently at Mars Hill Portland for their recent Mission & Vision Night, he sat down with Pastor Tim Smith to talk about their long friendship, history at the church, and what they’ve seen God do over all those years.

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

What to Expect

The Mars Hill Guide Leadership at Mars Hill

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.
