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?
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?
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?"

"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."
Our agreement to you and your group.
Local community leaders decide what needs in their community need help from outside sources. They know best.
Your money is spent in the local economy when we source building materials and food. Two houses built per week create 14 full-time jobs.
Life-changers, like you, from around the world bring their resources together to expand their individual impact.
Resources go to the people you want to impact. An independent third party audits Amor every year.
You will get the experience you expect to get or we'll make it right.
