What is The Gathering?

We come together every year to learn from each other in the context of our relationships.

From philanthropy to impact investing, from spiritual discernment to practical tips, from urgent needs at home to generational impact around the world, we seek Biblical wisdom in the expression of our Christian stewardship.

We invite a stellar group of doers and thinkers to help us understand new ideas and current events; place current events in historical context; examine the Scriptures and hold complex ideas in tension. Our guests come to share their expertise from a diversity of fields: entrepreneurs and investors, disrupters and institutionalists, theologians and pastors, artists and craftsmen, policymakers and pundits.



We cover everything from the practice of philanthropy, to the leadership of our families, to the opportunities for joining in God's work around the world.

We connect fellow givers who innately understand the responsibilities of wealth. In a safe and trusted setting, we offer each other plates of encouragement and kernels of wisdom, without judgment or expectations.

It was curiosity that brought us to The Gathering, but it was authentic relationships that kept us coming back.

A room full of people who do 'have it all' by worldly standards, singing the song that said "its yours, its all yours" and knowing that they meant it brought me to tears. What a privilege to be reminded how vast God's Kingdom is, and that he uses all of us, rich or poor, to fulfill his purposes.

The Gathering is a concentrated group of high capacity, Kingdom-driven individuals. It enables me to connect with those folks over best practices and ideas and to be there as a friend and build real, authentic relationships.

The Gathering is a sacred space for our family, a rare catalyst for friendships, conversations, and perspectives we have not found anywhere else.

Strengthen What Remains

That was my turning point for considering what time for me is left and how to use it.

Out of Place

Just as it was with Jonah, the whole world seems to conspire against you when you are running from your calling.
