Find fellowship among women and discover your passion and strengths as a giver.

In the security of a group of peers, be encouraged as you identify and fulfill your God-instilled passion for service and generosity.

Share the stories of your lives. You'll be inspired by seeing God at work in the philanthropic efforts of your peers. And you'll be a source of inspiration for others. Spend time with other women asking similar questions, and bask in the joy of what you discover together.

Understand how to deploy your resources. As a philanthropist, investor, and steward of your relationships, you have a reservoir of strength and resources. Learn how to align that abundance -- talent, treasure, and time -- with your passion and purpose.

Swap the lessons you've learned along the way. Whether making a home and raising children and/or launching a career and growing a business, you have insights that others need to hear.

Host: Teri Bledsoe, Michele Dudley and Dana Wichterman, Gathering participants

Who belongs? Women givers seeking friendship with other women givers from every stage of life.

When do we meet? This group will meet virtually, on Tuesday, for 90 minutes, starting in January 2024.

What will we discuss? We will draw on the excellent resources from our friends at Women Doing Well, a ministry that helps women live whole-hearted generosity. This group will work through two 6-session courses: Ignite and the newly designed Grow to Activate.

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.
