With a group of givers pursuing friendship and growth, join a conversation over this personal and scholarly testament to the power and hope of Black biblical interpretation.
This Peer Group welcomes those who seek meaningful discussion, lively dialogue, and honest reflections.
Co-Hosts: Michele Dudley, Dana Wichterman and Anne Crossman, Gathering participants
Who belongs? Givers seeking friendship with other givers from every stage of life. Connect and share with new friends in a book study.
When do we meet? This group will meet virtually for five one-hour sessions, starting the second week of June, and then connect in-person for a reunion at our annual conference, September 21-24, in Colorado Springs.
What will we discuss? For those who will be attending our upcoming conference, you will hear from Esau McCaulley, a Wheaton College professor of New Testament, ordained Anglican priest and contributor to The New York Times. Now’s your chance to work through his book Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope, winner of Christianity Today's book of the year, in the company of friends.

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.
