Registration will open soon.
Visit the frontier of technological change and envision its impact on humanity, from artificial intelligence to genetic engineering.
The questions we’ll address: (1) What's happening on the frontiers of technology? (2) How will our lives be shaped by these advances? (3) How might Christians draw truth and wisdom from Scripture to guide us in responding, shaping, and contributing to those advances?
We’ll spend one day diving into the world of genetic engineering and another day on artificial intelligence, concluding with a half-day of synthesis and imagination.
Guiding us through the scientific leaps, social ramifications, and theological themes are a collection of extraordinary thinkers and practitioners, headlined by:
Francis Collins, former director of the National Institutes of Health
Eric Kim, co-founder of Goodwater Capital
Frank Chen, partner at Andreessen Horowitz

Criteria to join our community events
- Follow Jesus as Lord and Savior.
- Give at least $200,000 a year to Christian causes. Though the number isn't a rigid threshold, it represents a proxy for the types of people who are asking and wrestling with the same questions around wise stewardship, giving well, avoiding pitfalls, raising the next generation, allocating resources, defining a family legacy, etc. People come to The Gathering to pursue relationships with peers who are exploring similar issues with a measure of humility, vulnerability, and trust.
