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, Gathering participant
Who belongs? Women givers seeking friendship with other women givers from every stage of life.
When do we meet? This group will meet virtually once a week, for 90 minutes, starting the third week of January, then connect in-person for a reunion at our annual conference, September 21-24, in Colorado Springs.
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.
