About Us


We are a welcoming Christian community, united in our desire to work with all people to restore all of creation to God’s loving embrace.

Galatians 3:28, The Message

In Christ’s family there can be no division into Jew and non-Jew, slave and free, male and female. Among us you are all equal. That is, we are all in a common relationship with Jesus Christ.

McMinnville Cooperative Ministries is a union, a marriage of two hearts with a unique and beautiful vision of worship.

McMinnville United Methodist Church and Trinity Lutheran Church of McMinnville came together  to form their vision of a new and welcoming community of people.  A place for those who felt displaced, wronged or un-included in religious groups before.  Those seeking a community of loving people who work to help those around them.  The Coop is a spiritual community, seeking to make the world better one day, one person at a time.
