MINISTRY STAFF

Here at The Gathering we don't have one single lead pastor; we have two leaders who share preaching and leadership responsibilities in addition to specializing in the different parts of our process.

JESSE DUKES

Hello, I’m Jesse Dukes, husband of Keight (K8), father of Judah, Layla, and Noa. I’ve lived in Senoia since 2006, grew up in Fayetteville, graduated from Sandy Creek High School in 2001, and graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005. I’m a self-professed Bible nerd and love reading of all sorts.  

 

I’ve also been known to play guitar, talk about CrossFit, drink coffee, eat gauc, guess people’s Enneagram type, listen to podcasts, and work on finishing my Masters in Counseling from Messiah College. At The Gathering, I’m our GROW Pastor and also oversee our worship ministry.  Jesus came into my life at an early age and has continued to rock my world year after year.  My life is dedicated to serving Him and helping people grow in His love.

KATIE RAY

Hey guys! I’m Katie. I’m so glad you’re interested in the Gathering! I hope you’ve instantly felt so loved and know you belong.

I’ve been with the Gathering since day one and I’m so passionate about what we are doing here in our community. I have zero chill when it comes to Jesus- His unconditional love has changed my life forever. I’m a lover of coffee, lashes, a bold mani/pedi and all things boujee. When I’m not gathering peeps, you can find me hanging with my fam. My husband Brooks and I have been married for 13 years and have 4 kiddos that I’m mush for. Again, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here and can’t wait to get to know YOU!
