The Gathering :: 2019 District Assembly & Conventions

We believe that significant things happen when people gather to celebrate, worship and be challenged together as a family! Welcome to The Gathering, our 2019 District Assembly & Conventions.

As you know, LIMITLESS is a concept that brings immediate pictures to mind. We think of superman strength and a supply of resources that pushes beyond all obstacles. But what if LIMITLESS was less about being a hero and more about obedience and faithfulness?

Join us as we gather for three days to ask ourselves what is God calling us to surrender, and yes, even dream, in order to experience His LIMITLESS provision in our lives, families, congregations & communities?

Our host site will be the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, located in downtown Columbia. All events will be on the Main Level, offering curb-side access, a connected lower parking lot containing 260 spaces, and a convenient parking garage across the street. You will also be steps away from great restaurants and hotel accommodations. You can explore more details here.
