At The Gathering we welcome everyone no matter where they are on their spiritual journey even as we encourage everyone to personally encounter the radical love and presence of Jesus.  If you are new to The Gathering, there are several ways to connect with us or find out more information.

First, feel free to browse around this website to get to know more about us.  You will see that we are multi-generational, casual, ordinary folks who deeply love Jesus, California, the ocean, the Bay Area, getting together, and blessing our community.

Second, click on the Our Story page of this website.  It will give you a little more detail about how we came to be, how we came to value meeting in small, home-based, communities, and how we seek to live out the radical way of Jesus in this world.

Third, we invite you to connect directly with Pastor David Gschwend  who would be happy to answer your questions by email, text, phone, or in person.  David can be contacted at, or 831.431.0788

Fourth, we encourage you to visit one of our house churches or Gathering Events.  To connect with one of our house churches please click here to go to our House Churches page.  To connect at one of our Gathering Events, please use the events tab on our main menu above.

Thanks for taking a moment to visit our web site. We hope to get an opportunity to get to know you in person at one of our house meetings or at one of our events.  Until then, God bless you on your spiritual journey!
