The Gathering

The vision behind The Gathering is to create a high energy weekend conference for students grades six through 12 to gather from all over the state to celebrate our Lord and Savior. Our commitment is to create a weekend event that is as first-class quality as you could find anywhere else in the country, with the best worship teams and communicators. Come join us as we envision the days when 5,000 United Methodist students come together as one body!
