With a group of givers pursuing friendship and growth, join a conversation over the ideas and practices in an engrossing book.
This Peer Group welcomes women who seek meaningful discussion, lively dialogue, and honest reflections.
Co-Hosts: Michele Dudley, Gathering participant
Who belongs? Women givers seeking friendship with other women 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 six one-hour sessions, starting the third week of January, and then connect in-person for a reunion at our annual conference, September 21-22, in Colorado Springs.
What will we discuss? For those who attended our conference in Nashville, you heard John Mark Comer; now’s your chance to work through his book The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry in the company of friends. Inspired by Dallas Willard who once called hurry "the great enemy of the spiritual life in our day," Comer invites us to live an emotionally healthy and spiritually vibrant life.
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.
