Frequently Asked Questions

What is Gather?

Gather is a one day event for pastors, church staff, ministry leaders, and future church planters. You will hear from leaders in your region and have an opportunity to meet and build relationships with others in ministry. We pray that this event helps to strengthen you, the local church, and advance the Kingdom.

Is there a cost to attend Gather?

No! This event is entirely free, and all are welcome, but you must register to attend.

Where can I find the Gather event schedule?

The event schedule can be found on each location’s landing page.

Will all locations have the same speakers and sessions?

While speakers will vary from location to location, each Gather experience will include powerful worship, timely words for the season we are in, and plenty of opportunities to connect with others across ARC.

Will you have lunch on-site?

Yes, lunch will be provided at each Gather location at no cost to you. A big thank you to our host churches and sponsors for providing lunch!

Is childcare provided?

No, childcare is not provided at Gather. Nursing mother’s rooms will be available.

If I cannot make it in person, will there be an online experience?

Gather is best experienced in person! We want you to use this time to connect and build relationships with other leaders in your area. ARC was founded on relationships over 20 years ago and is still just as important today. Don’t do ministry alone!
