Can You Really Make a Difference in the World?

You want to see the world become a better place and are wondering how you can make a difference with the rest of your life. You may have participated in short term trips, possibly even with Amor, but have returned home thinking, "What now?"

What if you could be a catalyst for change in the world?

You're Not Alone.

Thousands of people like you have had a transformational experience on a short-term service trip and have left wondering, "What next?"

Over the past four decades, we have seen people successfully transition their experience into a lifestyle of creating justice, and we have also seen people struggle to do so. 

The Global Gathering is the place to come, learn, and be equipped to go out and live a lifestyle of creating justice.  

You have a role to play in changing the world.

Will you play it?

Our theme for 2019 is
Create Justice:
Who Am I?

We come together at this Global Gathering, realizing that the work of Creating Justice is a simple act of God-reflecting, and can only be lived out in its truest sense as we pursue the answer to the question, "Who am I?"

What People are Saying

"In 2015 the Global Gathering provided five houses for five families and this was achieved in under a week. In just 5 days the chains of poverty are starting to be broken for those families, they have shelter from the weather, they have security both physical and emotional. It still blows my mind that by building these houses in one week we may have saved a child being sold as a slave, we may have stopped a woman having to sell herself to make a rent payment. If you want to see God move in the world, go to the next Global Gathering. If the state of the world breaks your heart, Global Gathering will give you hope."

James Burry, Australia
"Global Gathering was a rare and truly life changing few weeks. I have made lifelong friends from around the world that were also crazy passionate about justice. It was an incredible time of renewal to get inspired and focused on what really matters for the new year. It was so much more than just a house build – we had amazing speakers that covered topics that challenged and affected me to this day."
Charlotte Instone, United Kingdom
"Global Gathering was one of the best experiences of the year for our students as well as myself as a leader. Challenging teaching,impactful worship, and witnessing a tangible change in the local community was a recipe for an unforgettable and life changing week. I would highly recommend Global Gathering be an event on your calendar this year!  P.S. The dance parties were on point!"
Chris Easley, United States
