It is a place to connect with other women, to birth dreams and to make them happen. A place to connect with those who want to inspire and equip women to impact their world for the Kingdom of God. It is a safe place to share our lives, our faith, our hopes and dreams, our struggles, and our failures. It is a place to inhale the love of God and exhale the burdens of life.
Our heartbeat is for women scattered across the globe to have a place to gather. Somewhere you can hear stories and share stories. Somewhere you can listen to the heartbeat of God's calling on your life and allow that passion to grow. Somewhere authentic, honest, and real...where you can just be you. We can't wait to meet you.
I am not alone. When we come together our hearts breathe a sigh of relief. Something incredible happens when we gather. Hope springs forth. Courage is stirred up. Dreams awaken. Hearts are renewed. What was dead comes to life. This is the heart and soul of the Gather Conference- to bring together women from every corner of the world, from every position in life, from every background and past to experience together that beautiful phenomenon of worshiping our Father God in unity.
