The Gathering has a mission and a mission field. Our mission is: To restore hope and community through experiencing the hope and salvation of Jesus Christ.
We are all missionaries, sent to our community as our specific mission field. As such, we seek to complete the mission of Jesus Christ in reaching the people. We will follow Jesus’ lead and example. We will seek to reach people in their hurt, loss, and brokenness as well as be with them to celebrate the victories in life. We seek to encourage, educate, and care for the whole person: mind, body, and soul. In doing so, we seek to compassionately come alongside everyone and to equip, train and educate our community.
We cannot achieve this mission alone. We need your help. 50% of the people we currently serve are recovering addicts. 88% of the people we serve have no ability to financially contribute to this mission. In 2018, 10% of Auburn’s roughly 13,000 population (just over 1300 families) live at or below the federal poverty level. That means, for a family of 3 their income is $21,700 or lower. In addition, another 41% fall into the category of the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) population (meaning these families are living paycheck-to-paycheck). This statistic is unacceptable. Auburn can thrive and we can help each other overcome our circumstances. We can do life and live--really well--together.

to commit to helping with a $5 recurring monthly donation. We are a registered nonprofit church and all your donations are tax-deductible. For the year 2020, due to the pandemic, individual donations are deductible 100% with no high or low limit. For corporations and businesses, your donations are deductible at 25% rather than the normal 10% deduction.
The need is greater now, more than ever! In the coming month(s) we will be taking our programming live at our new location in Westedge Mall (suite 130). Please join us in loving and supporting our community and the growth it and its residents deserve.
