About James and Sheryl Helms

As followers of Jesus, Sheryl and I serve on staff with Nav Neighbors and James is the area connector for the Parish Collective in Portland, OR.

We are neighborhood practitioners, we participate with God in what he is doing in our neighborhood. We are also local leaders and are linking expressions of the church in order to weave together a fabric of love and care in the neighborhoods across the city. We intentionally seek to equip everyday people, right where they are, in order for them to love their friends, family, and neighbors.

We want to share Christ and to demonstrate the good news about God’s Kingdom. We are disciples in every day life, we mentor, equip and seek to make a positive impact in the lives of people in our neighborhoods and to seek the flourishing of the place where we live!
