About The Gathering

The Gathering is a mid-sized church (500ish pre-COVID) in Centerville, Ohio (south of Dayton). We have experienced healthy growth throughout 2020 and 2021 and anticipate this trend will continue. Our staff team is united and energized with a low tolerance for drama. We have a strong volunteer culture and a high percentage of our congregation is engaged in groups or teams (or both).
