The Beautiful Garden

Song of Solomon 4:12-5:1


As Solomon compares his bride to a beautiful garden in Song of Solomon 4:12 - 5:1, we see a summary of the love he will express during the course of the entire book. As we pull back to the bigger picture, we also see the love that God expresses for us as the bride of Christ, what He bestows upon us in light of this, and what our response should be in return.

Senior Pastor
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
