Building a multi-generational Christian community that is Christ-centered, Holy Spirit inspired, biblically literate and obedient through a personal relationship with Jesus that changes us so we can change our world.
A small group of Grants Pass residents, seeking more of God, started a Sunday school in a private home. That was approximately 1921. Eighty years later that group has grown into the thriving and vibrant fellowship known as Parkway Christian Center.
The first property owned by the church was at the corner of eight and "E" Streets. The church building located on this property was remodeled and expanded to accommodate growth until it was determined that a new location was needed. At that time the church looked to the eastern gate of the city and purchased the property the congregation presently occupies.
Ground was broken in February of 1977, and a year later the congregation moved into the new facility. This new facility (completed in March of 1978) consisted of a Sanctuary, Fellowship Hall, and Children's wings. In 1999, Parkway Christian Center added the Hull Center, a facility dedicated to youth ministry which contains a gym, full service kitchen, and rooms and offices for our Youth Department.
