The Gathering: Starts Sunday, August 13
Turning the Church Inside Out
*The Gathering will be an “affiliate” of Mobile Missions Network and will be our first “church plant”.
“My ambition has always been to preach the Good News where the name of Christ has never been heard, rather than where a church has already been started by someone else. I have been following the plan spoken of in the Scriptures, where it says, ‘Those who have never been told about him will see, and those who have never heard of him will understand.”” Romans 15:20-21
