gathering people to bring
HEAVEN. HERE. NOW.
Welcome to The Gathering People! We are a group of people striving to love like Jesus. Our vision is to bring heaven here now - and we believe in doing that by empowering people to change THEIR world in an initiative to change THE world. Our heartbeat is to GO, but you will also find Gathering People growing together in small groups throughout our community, or gathering together for a meal, a worship service, or just a fun time!
The Gathering People movement began in June 2019. We want to live and operate by a set of values that impacts our community, and touches the lives of everyone in it - including people in need, the unchurched, and those who may have been hurt by religion. To find out more about who we are, and what we believe, continue reading our values below:
IMITATORS OF JESUS
Jesus is at the forefront of all that we do. How we treat one another, how we forgive one another, and why we do certain things, can all be traced back to him.
RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE WIN
People come first! Our priority is to have a relationship with you so that we can grow together in Jesus. We value real relationships and want to help you get connected to other people in meaningful and transformative ways.
We want to think outside the box of what a Christian community ‘should’ be - we want to do all that it takes to reach the next generation of believers!
HAVE FUN WHILE LOVING PEOPLE
We don’t take ourselves too seriously - after all, we have every reason to celebrate! We want to create a safe place for people to be authentic and unapologetically themselves.
GLAD TO GIVE
We don’t just want to meet people’s needs - we want to bless them by giving generously and by overfilling any needs that we see!
IT'S NOT ABOUT ME
We get to play a role in this idea that is so much bigger than ourselves - we can bring heaven here now! We can’t make everyone happy all the time, but if we collectively agree that it’s not about ourselves, we can reach so many others!
