What is the Gathering?
The Gathering is a Zoom group where people who see what’s happening in this world can discuss predetermined videos, articles, and topics related to Bible prophecy and the soon return of Jesus for His bride. See the complete invitation to join below:
Do you feel alone? You are invited to gather with fellow believers who see the prophetic significance of our times. We know Jesus is coming soon!
This world is getting darker. Some see it; others, even Christians, barely acknowledge that we’re nearing the end. For most of us, the people around us are tired of hearing our warnings. And honestly, we’re tired of trying to warn, especially when we are so often shut down and even ridiculed over our certainty of a pretribulation rapture.
What if you could come to a safe place, a place where others are discussing this season of the end? Would you be interested? Many prominent prophecy pastors and teachers have live YouTube chats that allow for interaction between their listeners. That gives great encouragement, but what about “face to face” interaction? Don’t you miss it?
In the spirit of the admonishment in Hebrews 10:25, I propose we assemble to encourage each other as we see the day drawing near. I need it. People around me need it. The ease of getting together in the post-covid world is one of the benefits we have with technology. God is using what the enemy intended for evil to connect people nationwide, worldwide even through Zoom meetings.
My own time having Zoom meetings has gotten me to thinking; I can host a Zoom “Gathering” and invite those near and far to interact with one another. I don’t intend this to be me teaching or leading anything. I see this, instead, as a place for scattered sheep to gather, connect, and discuss a predetermined sermon, video, or article.
A few specifics to help you decide if you want to be a part of this Gathering:
- Meeting time will be most Thursday evenings. Early log-on time is 6:00 (CST) to get audio and video going for new members. We begin at 6:15, and end time is 7:30.
- You can come when you can, even late, and leave early if you need to. No explanations ever needed.
- This is a come-as-you-can small group. No commitment.
- Assigned videos and discussion questions will be available on Mondays at The Gathering Or you can receive updates in your inbox by signing up here.
- Small group time will be group led, meaning there will be no preassigned leader. A list of questions will be assigned for the groups, and all will considerately interact.
- You will never be asked to pray out loud unless you specifically let me (Lisa) know that you are comfortable with that.
Rules of engagement will be predefined, meaning there will be a code of conduct. This isn’t a place for heated theological debate, rather a place where Jesus is to be honored by all of our words and actions.
If you’re interested in joining us, follow the link at the top of the page for the next meeting. The link for the assigned video or article will be available by Monday at 5:00 p.m.
What to expect:
6:00 to 6:15 (CST) is reserved for members to get their audio and video situated. Or you can arrive at 6:15. There will be a brief welcome, then we will be assigned to small groups of 3-5. Each member should have their list of questions and Bibles. One member can ask questions and allow for discussion, or members can take turns asking.
If you’re naturally quiet, try to challenge yourself to join in the conversation when you’re more comfortable. If you’re naturally chatty (like me), please leave room for others to speak.
Rules of engagement will be predefined, meaning there will be a code of conduct. This isn’t a place for heated theological debate, rather a place where Jesus is to be honored by our words and actions.

If you have never used Zoom, you will need to add the Zoom app onto your device. You can attend the meeting on your computer, tablet, or smart phone.
If the information on the Zoom site doesn’t work, or if you’re not familiar with how to download apps onto your devices, reach out to someone younger in your family or at your church. Technology is newer to us over a certain age, so we have to be willing to let our younger, more tech-skilled generation help. Let them earn a blessing.
Hope to see you soon,
