REGIONAL OUTREACH MINISTRIES
The HCC Family is supportive, encouraged by, and excited to be a part of several regional ministries that love and serve God and love people in various ways. Take a look at the groups below and learn about the many places God is moving among His people ...
BUSHNELL UNIVERSITY fosters WISDOM, FAITH, and SERVICE through excellent academic programs within a Christ-centered community. Bushnell University is committed to a holistic approach to education and life-long learning that engages not only the mind of the learner, but every aspect of life – body, spirit, and heart. Bushnell University fosters life-transformation through co-curricular learning, campus ministries, student development programs, service activities, and community experiences, including programs designed for non-traditional and adult students, as well as traditional undergraduate students.
At Bushnell University, they seek to highlight their Christian identity in ways that unite Christians everywhere, and not in ways that tend to cause division between various groups of Christians. In this spirit, they believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and we proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world.
HCC has many Bushnell graduates and alumni within our congregation. Formerly Northwest Christian College and Northwest Christian University, Bushnell just recently celebrated it's 125th Anniversary serving the Lord through Higher Education opportunities. HCC has supported the school since it's inception.
We are pleased that Bushnell's current President, Dr. Joseph Womack (Just "Joe" to us) attends HCC with his family. Our Lead Pastor, Clare Buhler, serves on Bushnell Board of Trustees. We have other HCC folks who work for Bushnell in various capacities.
HCC supports the school with students, internship opportunities, monthly financial support, and opportunities for service and spiritual growth among it's students. You can learn more about Bushnell by going to their website: www.bushnell.edu
WINEMA CHRISTIAN CAMP is located on the beautiful Oregon coast just north of Neskowin off Hiway 101. In this beautiful setting youth, adults, families, and children come face to face with the breathtaking creation of God! For over 75 years, Winema Christian Camp served as a place where people could experience God's love in Jesus Christ and respond to His invitation to faith and service in His name. Offering youth camps, family conferences, and pleasant retreat settings, Winema Christian Camp is a place God has used to change the hearts of generations of campers.
Harrisburg has been supportive of the camp for over 24 years, and even longer families from HCC have attended the various conferences and camps. Each year kids and families from HCC enjoy a week or weekend of camp, and many have served in leadership roles at those camps and conferences. You can find out more information about WInema Christian Camp and current camping schedules and registration by going to their website at: www.winema.org
OREGON CHRISTIAN CONVENTION CENTER is a place, an event and an idea! The place is on 19 acres in Turner, Oregon. The event is the annual week of the now “Northwest Christian Convention” , formerly the "Oregon Christian Convention". The idea is to connect churches on common ground for the building up of the Body of Christ. In 1885 the Turner family donated the property that hosted the annual camp meeting known as the Oregon Christian Convention. The Tabernacle, which was built in 1891, continues to house the annual Convention event and many other activities.
The Convention has been connecting the church in the Northwest for over 160 years. The center offers conferences, retreats, and seminars throughout the year. These events target areas of ministry in the church to equip the church as it ministers in the local community. The grounds and facilities are available to rent for camps, retreats, family gatherings, and other activities.

TURNER RETIREMENT HOMES is located in the heart of Turner, just Southeast of Salem, Oregon. TRH was founded in 1933 when Cornelia Turner Davis donated land and funds to establish Turner Memorial Home. It was created to provide benevolent housing for retired ministers and missionaries, who dedicated their lives to share and teach the Word of God. Since 1933 they have evolved and grown, but we still retain the mission of our essential purpose - to provide affordable housing to Christians in need.
TRH is happy to be able to provide both options of independent living in their community as well as assisted living in TRH's Residential Care Facility. They are open now to anyone who wants to live in a place where their spiritual, physical, and some essential needs can be met. HCC has had several former Pastors and Pastor's wives who have lived at TRH over the many
years. HCC supports Turner Retirement Homes with a monthly financial gift and prayer support. If you are interested in TRH go to their website: www.trhomes.org
