In 1979 a group of passionate, young people felt led to plant a new church community. Initially the city of Battle Ground, WA was chosen, however with the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980, the team had to quickly choose another site. They settled on the city full of young people, Pullman, home of Washington State University.
Since 1980, Pullman Foursquare has been an integral part of the Spiritual life of WSU and the city of Pullman serving students from all across Washington and the United States as well as over 30 other countries. Each year, Pullman Foursquare commissions and sends out nearly 30 people to serve Jesus Christ in cities, countries and missions across the globe.
The Cordova Theater Story
Built in 1928, the Historic Cordova Theater was the last silent movie house built in the North West. Decked out in a beautiful Spanish Revival style, the theater quickly became one of the first "Talkies" after a brief closure in 1929 to remove the pipe organ and install sound equipment. The Theater served Pullman and WSU until early 2001 when a newly built Multi-plex theater made operating and maintaining the aging theater difficult. At this time, private investors purchased the theater and leased it to Pullman Foursquare Church. Since then, Pullman Foursquare has purchased the Cordova and has worked hard to complete a historic renovation that will allow the Cordova to be a historic gem and useful gathering space for generations of WSU students and Pullman residents for years to come.
