Local Missions

A major part of our focus at Foundry is on our local Bend, Oregon community. We greatly desire to be God's hands in serving the people around us. Working through both our own ministries and those of other organizations, we seek to fulfill our Great Commission in Bend.

Our Local Missions Committee meets the second Wednesday of each month in the church Gathering Place at 5:15pm. If you would like more information about our programs or would like to get involved, please contact Ken Mays.

Below is a list of the Bend organizations and ministries that we support:


James 1:27 describes the care of orphans as pure and faultless religion. Understanding the financial and psychological stress of adoption, we have established a two part ministry to adoptive families at Foundry. First, families in the adoption process are provided mentor families to encourage, guide and support them. Second, a designated fund exists to help qualifying families pay for adoption costs.


The Central Oregon Police Chaplaincy is a Biblically-based, non-profit ministry that exists to serve and support all law enforcement and emergency services personnel within Central Oregon by influencing them with God’s grace and love and providing Christ-centered service and ministry to those in uniform along with their families.
