The Gathering – How It Came To Be
"Jackie had an idea when we had a good friend over for dinner. She was quite excited about her idea. When this happens, a tugboat couldn't knock her off course. And, as usual, she was thinking of others. The single folks at church needed something more to do. God had saved and moved an "older now" rock 'n roll musician out of the smoky bars and onto the fledgling praise team at church. And Jackie had a garage that was pretty much empty ... so ... single folks ... rock n' rollers ... empty garage ... obvious to God and her, I'm sure. What she didn't know was the extent to which the rock 'n roller had been convicted and how excited he was about a new, higher purpose for an old hobby.
So, The Gathering was born that evening and though we were confident it was a good idea, we had no idea what God had in mind. Early on, we would have perhaps ten people show up. But we chugged along. The ten became 20, then 30, then 40 and coming from Chapin, Eastover! Then Jackie does her thing and we move to the PALACIOUS Yellow Rock Hall, with an actual stage and the numbers soared! The event begins to make a profit! Even funding the sound system for the brand new Willow Ridge Church. But as bands often do, "First Friday" tired after a while, but not Jackie. 12 years later, with many, many lives steered in his direction, it seems The Gathering itself is sort of God's tugboat and Jackie Branham, his captain.
Love you Jackie and thanks."

God's Word
"11 It is written:  'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' 12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God. 13 Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way."
Romans 14:11-13
