Jesus Experiment Cross Walk

PLEASE NOTE: The Route of the walk has changed and will now begin and end at the Oregon Convention Center NOT Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Jesus walked many paths and made many journeys. However, his most important walk ended on a hill outside of Jerusalem where he died on a cross... a cross he carried until a man from the crowd, a visitor to Jerusalem named Simon, was summoned to carry it for him. That walk and that death have impacted lives for over 2,000 years.

Reel ahead to April 19, 2014, when 900 people, in teams of three, will commit to carrying a cross, as Simon did. 300 life-size crosses will be carried from the Oregon Convention Center across the Steel Bridge, south along the water-front to the Hawthorne Bridge and then back again to the Oregon Convention Center south parking lot.

Before the Cross Walk, people are urged to read, the Jesus Experiment, a book that will connect them to Jesus and prepare them to fully experience the cross.

The Jesus Experiment Cross Walk will culminate at the Oregon Convention Center south parking lot with a gathering of registered walkers, bands and speakers to reflect on the Cross and celebrate Easter.

Join us as we experience the cross and elevate Jesus.
