Thank You For An Incredible 2017 Main Event For Adults!

February 27, 2017

What a night we had at the 2017 Main Event For Adults!

Last Thursday, along with hundreds of guests, we celebrated God’s work through The GP. Along with student testimonies, our Executive Director, Lucas Ramirez, shared about the great momentum in the organization and invited the community to join The GP in “reaching students before they need to be rescued!”

We also heard a dynamic keynote from C. L. “Shep” Shepherd as he shared with us his incredible and inspiring story. The crowd responded with a standing ovation!

It was a beautiful evening and the results blessed us by showing the deep community support for this ministry! We raised $170k towards our goal of $200k for the night – we are so grateful!! This will allow us to continue our student leadership development programs, mentor initiatives and evangelistic outreach to students.

In addition, we had many people sign up as volunteers to serve in GP programs and offer their support in other ways such as donating physical assets or access to their homes for our various program housing needs. Thank you everyone for your generosity!

If you were unable to join us last Thursday, but would like to support the work of The Gathering Place, it is not too late! You can call us anytime to volunteer, get involved and you can always give here or by calling our office (912-264-3474).

Thank you again to everyone for making the event such a huge success. We could not do what we do without the support from so many – on behalf of the students we serve – THANK YOU!!
