The purpose of this study is to assist the Christian Holiness Association's Department of Evangelism by locating on maps churches within the association that are in the states of Oregon and Washington. In-depth studies of Portland, Oregon, and its surrounding area; Seattle. Washington, Spokane, Washington, and Vancouver Washington, are also included., The in-depth studies include census tracts which show areas where population is sparse and where it is dense, how many member churches are in each population area, and concentrations of a particular member denomination's churches. Through the use of maps and tables this study makes evident overlapping parishes in some communities and the lack of facilities with a holiness witness in other communities~ Hence, this study will be helpful to Christian Holiness Association denominations in knowing where to cooperatively establish new facilities.
