In 2009, the Greater Gresham Baptist Church purchased the old Zion church, with plans to renovate the building and "change the lives of the people in this community." As they noted, the old building is "within a 3-mile radius of 250,000 people, ninety-five percent of whom are not actively involved in a church."
When the renovation did not progress as quickly as planned, Greater Gresham formed a partnership with Door of Hope, a church that was seeking to establish a ministry in inner northeast Portland. Door of Hope is currently renovating the church and plans to open for Christmas Eve services.
