The Gathering USA

The Gathering USA is a ministry of evangelism, discipleship and mission opportunities for men, engaging them to live fully alive. The Gathering was begun by Dr. John Tolson in 1978. Alarmed by the lack of spiritual direction men were providing for their families and the alarmingly low number of men attending church, John developed an appealing and effective way to reach men for Christ by mobilizing Christian men to invite their friends to a non-threatening outreach event in a secular setting.
