Update on Volunteer Applications and the 2021 Gathering (May 15, 2020)

Due to the impact of COVID-19, applications for the Gathering Volunteer Corps and Local Volunteers will not open on May 21 as previously scheduled. Our webinar for May 21 on volunteering at the Gathering will also be postponed.

Gathering staff and leadership continue to monitor COVID-19 recommendations and trends from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state governments, our host city and venues, and meeting planner organizations. We know this crisis will impact the ministry of the Gathering, but at this time we are unsure exactly how. We are currently working through a variety of scenarios. Please stay tuned to Gathering social media and the website for updates.

We thank all of you who continue to care for young people during this pandemic. Know that you, your congregation and especially the youth of this church are in our daily thoughts and prayers.
