"You take care of the depth of your ministry, and let God take care of the breadth of it; You work on the quality of your shepherding and let God take care of the quantity of the sheep."
~ John MacArthur
WHO IS JESUS?
The only Redeemer is the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, in whom God became man and bore the penalty for sin himself. Jesus Christ is our living Savior, our risen Lord, our Great High Priest, and our loving friend. He is fully man and fully God and
He is worthy of our worship!
WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?
The gospel is the story of God's sovereign plan from eternity past to redeem a sinful people to Himself through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Only by faith in Jesus Christ and in his substitutionary atoning death on the cross can we find salvation. Our only hope in life and death is that we are not our own but belong, body and soul, both in life and death, to God and to our Savior Jesus Christ.
WHAT IS YOUR CHURCH ALL ABOUT?
We exist to display the Glory of God by Being and Making Disciples of Jesus Christ. We do this by living out the gospel in four primary ways: through authentic worship, devoted community, strategic equipping,
and bold witness.
In 2013, a few believers began to gathering in the living room of Garth and Patty Leno to pray, for fellowship, and to study the Bible. It wasn't long before this small group outgrew the Leno's home and began to meet on Saturday evenings at the Roseland Golf and Curling Club. Soon thereafter the group grew large enough that the rented meeting room they occupied could not fit those God was bringing, and a larger banquet / meeting room across the hall was needed.
God steadily brought more people so that on January 18, 2014, the group decided to take the first steps in becoming a new church in Windsor-Essex. By God's grace, this simple 'gathering' of believers became The Gathering Church.
The Gathering first met at Roseland Golf Course from October 2013 and worshiped there until January 2015 when it leased and renovated a warehouse on Provincial Road. By God's grace, the church was given the opportunity to purchase the building now occupied - a 12,000 square feet, 6.2 acre, former Knights of Columbus building. The first worship service took place in October 2017. Pastor Garth concluded his fulltime ministry at The Gathering in June 2022 and has become a Team Leader of Pastor Care with the CNBC.
You are welcome to join us! We gather to worship every Sunday morning at 10:00.
We meet at 2401 Columbus Avenue, Windsor
Welcome to a new era at The Gathering!
We're extremely excited to unveil our new logo! Embedded in this logo, you'll find our letters: TGC [The Gathering Church], as well as an abstract bridge [representing Windsor/Essex]/cross hidden in the T.
