GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY
The Gathering is a movement inspiring college students to live for what matters most. We exist so that students in Northern Virginia can know God, find freedom and make a difference in their world. We do this through dynamic worship and powerful messages, real and relevant relationships and a community committed to empowering students to reach for God’s great purpose for their lives.
At The Gathering, small groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. Our small groups are designed to give everyone at The Gathering a place to belong, to be cared for, and to be encouraged and strengthened in their journey with Jesus. Sharing life through community is part of God’s design for us, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why small groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
