The Gathering 2013
Three years ago God dropped a vision in the hearts of a small group of young people out in Eastern Long Island to have one night of worship. A night not for or about any specific Church, but solely for THE Church of Jesus coming together and lifting His name high over our Island. One night where we the CHURCH can open our doors and welcome anyone and everyone to encounter the living God who is passionately in love with them. The above video is the Recap of last years Gathering, check it out!
3 Years ago we started with about 150 people. This past year we exceeded 400 people, and watched as God moved in some absolutely incredible ways, not only in the lives of those who knew Him already, but also in the lives of those who had never known Him before.
The GREAT news is The Gathering is growing quickly with people passionate to worship Jesus. The CHALLENGE we now face is getting a bigger venue to host the event. Our heart is to take this event OUTSIDE the walls of a Church building, and into a more public venue where people who would never step into a Church would feel comfortable enough to come. Obviously this challenge requires funding, which is why you find us here on Kick starter.
We would be honored if you would partner with us in making this night of public worship POSSIBLE on Long Island NY. How this works is: we have set a goal of $5000.00 to make by July 21, 2013. You can donate and see how far we are into reaching our goal by creating a login and giving right here on the website. The site tracks our progress and you can see how close we get as time progresses. If we do NOT reach our goal by the 21st of July, ALL the money already given KICKS BACK to those who gave and we are left again with a balance of $0.
We hope to have the honor of partnering with you in this vision for The Gathering 2013.
