The gathering

Welcome to the Gathering


We’re so glad you’re here and are interested in who we are and what we are about. The Gathering was born out of Isaiah 43:18-19, which says, “Forget the former things, I’m doing something new, like streams in the desert.” Imagine for a moment the good news and good works of Jesus pouring into your neighborhood, through you and those who gather with you.


Join us every Wednesday at 7PM CST on Facebook and YouTube for our midweek Gathering.  You will hear a relevant Word and get inspiration to help you through the rest of the week.  If you would like to download the Gathering Study Guides, visit here. 

how the gathering works


With 3 billion people online, more and more people are watching church from the comfort of their home. Our desire is to help people who watch church in their home become people with a church in their home. 


The Gathering is an effort to take the good news to more people through technology. We will not be saddled with the cost of buildings or leases. We will be encouraging people to meet together with what God has provided, in the places where they live. 


By hosting smaller gatherings in homes, community centers, and offices, we will be able to invest our offerings back into our communities.

the problem - coronavirus

The concern over the spreading the COVID-19 virus certainly applies to Sunday church gatherings.


Seems like the notion of “cancel culture” just took on a whole new dimension.

School — canceled. Vacation– canceled. Basketball tournaments and horse races– both the lifeblood of my people– canceled. Conferences, retreats, events of all kinds– canceled, eliminated.


In a matter of a few days, this thing has gone from “wash your hands and cover your cough” to a significant lifestyle change that most of us have not experienced in our lifetime. 


There are many unknowns here. There is unprecedented territory ahead, and nobody can say how long it might last.

The opportunity


The Gathering will help reach the world for Christ online and reverse the declining trends in church attendance. Jesus said we are not to forsake the gathering of ourselves together. 


He promised that He would build His Church (gathering) and that the gates of Hell would not prevail against it. 


The vision of The Gathering comes from His promise in Isaiah 43 where He revealed that His Gospel and His Church would be like streams in the desert. Thank you for taking the time to begin learning about The Gathering.

While sending people to our Facebook page or YouTube channel to view our live stream is an option, the downside is there are a lot of distractions for people on both platforms. You have notifications, chats, ads, etc and it’s hard for viewers to focus on engaging in your service. We prefer sending people to our "distraction-free" streaming site. It provides a distraction-free experience that is equipped with the Bible, sermon notes, and community chat (coming soon) and online giving. You can click the link below to access the site.
