LEVERAGING our Campus addressing housing insecurity
Our On-Campus Neighbors
Jesus Christ summed up all of scripture by inviting the love neighbor as self, as a faithful expression of one’s love of the Divine. Throughout our history we have sought to hold our North Bellevue campus with open hands, hoping to bless and serve our neighbors.

Interfaith Task for Homelessness
Partnership Since 2009
The Interfaith Task Force on Homelessness (ITFH) is composed of individuals representing religious congregations, religious and secular organizations which work toward preventing and ending homelessness. Most of our membership spans much of the religious community, including Christian, Unitarian, Jewish, and Muslim. We reach out to all sectors of the faith community to join us in action and to support us morally and financially. More than this, we work as colleagues with all who seek to alleviate the harm of homelessness. Formed in 2001 under St. Mark’s Cathedral Seattle, we’ve been subsequently hosted by The Church Council of Greater Seattle, and since 2009 by St. Luke’s Lutheran Church.
