Exclusive Stories


Have you seen some of our profiles?

With this collection of stories, we highlight the Church, the diverse members who make up the body of Christ. We see how people’s experiences have shaped them as a child of God and how God has worked in their lives. We learn more about all the wonderful and varied vocations that people follow and are inspired to use our gifts to the glory of God.

You can find the stories on Instagram and read some longer exclusive stories here on the Gathering blog.

      I really think that when you find yourself on the other end of that struggle, your faith will be stronger than it has ever been before, and that’s all because God used that struggle to strengthen you.
