The Main Event For Adults is an inspirational fundraising evening where stories are shared of God at work through The Gathering Place as we invite you to join the mission. This event is always a night to remember!  It is an evening where community is gathered and great food is shared; all hosted in a unique setting of Gruber’s hangar at the St. Simons Airport, which makes for an unforgettable night.  Our goal is to draw supporters who want to join the GP in seeing local students reached with the Gospel of Jesus, equipped to be effective leaders, and sent to impact their world.
Dinner will be served by one of St Simons’ best caterers–Brian Justice of Tasteful Temptations. Come be inspired by live music and testimonies from students and community leaders on how The Gathering Place is impacting lives for eternity! This is a free event and an opportunity to support The Gathering Place will be presented.
