Keynote Speaker
C.L. "Shep" Shepherd

Come hear the incredible story of one of the most powerful and dynamic speakers The GP has ever had. More than 645 local students have responded to the Gospel in the last 4 years through Shep’s messages!
A former NFL athlete, Shep now delivers relevant and timeless messages with unmatched passion and energy. His story of transformation from growing up in the slums and total poverty has captivated thousands. Now, he is one of the most sought after communicators to pro and college athletes. Come hear why!

Theme: Something More


When fame and fortune are the values our world follows for fulfillment, it is easy to settle for life’s cheap seats, setting our hearts only on things we can see and distance ourselves from our true purpose and identity. Though we convince ourselves that the colorful filters we exhibit our lives through match how we really feel, almost without noticing, we lose sight of who we are and why we are here. What if there is more to our existence than what we can see? Christ invites us to something more… to a new world he is re-creating, a promised land of beauty and adventure so rich, you’ll never be the same.

What Can You Expect? 

The Main Event for Adults is an annual fundraiser for the Gathering Place that draws around 1000 guests who want to see local students reached with the Gospel of Jesus, equipped to be effective Christian leaders, and sent to impact their world. You can expect an inspirational night with good food through a seated dinner and fellowship with others in our community. The attire for the night is business casual. You will hear student testimonies that glorify God's work through the Gathering Place and be given and opportunity to become part of this exciting mission!
