Pastor Ron Kincaid

Ron Kincaid was born in Menlo Park, California and grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, his Masters of Divinity from Trinity University in Deerfield, Illinois, and Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary. During his years in college and seminary, he served on student staff with Young Life at Beaverton High School in Oregon and Deerfield High School in Illinois. Ron and his wife Jorie met while working in Young Life together in Illinois. Prior to starting Portland Community Church, he served as the lead pastor at Sunset Presbyterian Church.


Ron believes all that he has done in his life to date, God has used to prepare him for the privilege of shaping Portland Community Church into a God-honoring, loving church, that leads people into a growing relationship with Christ.

He and his wife, Jorie, have nine children, two daughters-in-law, five grandchildren, a horse, and a Siberian Husky to say the least, their home has been pretty wild for the last three decades.

Ron enjoys going on dates and walks with Jorie, spending time with his family, reading, and six months of the year he goes water skiing twice a week on the slalom course in West Linn.
