Religious Organization in Gresham, OR
With cooperation of local pastors, Rockwood Assembly of God was began by Leonard Parker at 182nd and Burnside on November 6, 1956. Soon the church purchased acreage at 178th and Main. The owner, a retired minister, wished to see the land used for a place of worship to the Lord. In 1966 a new building, known as Parker Hall was constructed. Later a 2nd education wing was added.
