House Gatherings

Becoming invitational, spiritual, and missional people.

House Gatherings

House Gatherings are like extended families that live a rhythm of life together that's worth being invited into. Our House Gatherings are striving to create disciples who are...


  1. Invitational... whether that is through inviting people over for backyard barbeques or going out to be the church in social public life, House Gatherings live in such a way as to say to their surrounding communities, "we are with you".
  2. Spiritual... meaning they spend time contemplating and reflecting on scripture and praying for one another.
  3. Missional... and that mission is to do good in this world out of thankfulness for what God has done for us, as the fruit of our faith, and in hopes of winning others over to Christ.

The best way to find out what a House Gathering is like is to join one... if you're interested in participating in a rhythm of life like this click the "contact us" button below and we'll get you hooked up!
