Almost eight years ago, a handful of people invested in a dream to start a church called, The Gathering Place. Since then, we've planted campuses in other cities, established Christian schools, and the love of Jesus has impacted 1000's of lives!
JUST THIS YEAR
375 people have made decisions for Jesus Christ
99 people have publicly celebrated their faith through baptism
300+ people are finding freedom in small groups
250 people are serving weekly through our local church and in our community
We launched an additional campus in Calera, AL
Over 5,000 people have been reached globally for Jesus Christ
Over $400,000 has been invested in foreign and local missions
We have provided Christmas for over 200 children locally and 500 in Bulgaria
WHAT IS BIG GIVE?
Big Give is a special, once-a-year offering where we give over and above our tithes and offerings to make a difference in people’s lives here in our state and around the world.
This year’s Big Give Offering will be during our worship services on Thursday, December 13th & Sunday, December 16th at all of our campuses and services.
We’re encouraging everyone to join with us on this special day. Our goal is not for a certain amount to be given, but for everyone to participate in some way. It’s not about equal giving, but equal sacrifice.
This offering will bless people’s lives in several areas:
We believe the cities where God has given us campuses are our first responsibility. Through our strategic ministry partnerships, we have more opportunities than ever before to impact the people of our cities during the holiday season. Our team has vetted through these opportunities to find the most critical needs and most effective places to make a difference. We’re already doing a lot in our communities, but this offering will allow us to do even more.
Our second area of focus is our great nation. We believe the local church is the hope of the world, and the best way to impact our country is by starting new churches and strengthening existing churches in the U.S. This offering will support life-giving churches that will change communities.
Through our strategic ministry partnerships, we have the opportunity to raise up more leaders and plant more churches in the most critical places on earth—Israel, India, Nepal, and Africa, just to name a few. This offering reflects the heart of our God, who loves the whole world (John 3:16) and responds to the cry of Jesus to “go into all the world” (Matthew 28:19).
The Gathering PLace Church
This offering accelerates the vision that we share here at TGP—to establish life-giving churches that will deploy believers for the fulfillment of The Great Commission (Acts 1:8).
