The Gathering

Young Adults Ministry


The Gathering is a ministry for young adults to grow in or begin their faith for the first time. The ministry seeks to provide a place for young adults to GATHER to study God’s Word, pray, serve one another, and worship Jesus. Additionally, the Gathering encourages young adults to GO live out their faith, share the Gospel, have fun, and change the world.
