We are delighted you are interested in joining us for The Gathering — our annual event where Christian philanthropists and their families come together to talk seriously (and not so seriously) about their giving, their lives, and their joys and struggles. We limit the number of adult participants to 350 with the desire that you will enjoy each other's presence more fully. At this time, our 2017 event has reached capacity.

September 21 - 24 Carlsbad, CA

Sometimes it takes having differences, not understanding one another, and even being a little bit irritated by and bored with one another, to remind us that the church is a family and not a club. Scott Sauls
