The Gathering Place

Love Creator, Love Others, Love Life

The Gathering Place is about rebuilding tribal nations through the healing power of the Holy Spirit.

  • Each tribal nation as a distinct people group created in the image of God.

  • The history of each tribe including: Acknowledging the past from a Native perspective.

  • The land on which God has strategically placed Native nations.

  • Indigenous language revitalization as a source of cultural identity & communication of God’s Word.

  • Healthy relationships are the foundation of a healing community.

  • Our prayers will regularly be answered.

  • Biblical & cultural teachings along with current events in Native Country help us understand the world we live in.

  • Learning arts, crafts, and stories will help us attain and pass along sacred knowledge to the next generations.

  • Language is a window into how people think, thus we must take every opportunity to learn indigenous languages.

  • Serving others locally, regionally, and internationally is the best way to keep our hearts open to how fortunate we are.

  • Fellowship over traditional food is good medicine.
