Our Focus

Gather. Grow. Go.

The Gathering Place is a Christ-centered church in Vancouver, Washington. Our focus is to journey with people from brokenness to extravagant life in Jesus. We are not a perfect church by any means, but we long to know the real answers for real life in the power of God’s grace. We also aim to be an externally-focused church, introducing other people to the love of God through community partnerships with schools, government agencies, and faith-based ministries. All of us are on this journey together and a pathway we describe with three words…Gather, Grow, Go.

Join us Sundays at 10:30am for worship at our new location at 2500 NE 78th Street.
