Through our willingness to live out God’s unqualified love and radical acceptance of all people, the church has grown to have impact both locally and globally. For that very reason, we have strategically implemented a multi-site model that allows us to bring our fresh perspective to several locations throughout St. Louis and beyond.


Who We Are

The Gathering, founded in 2006 by Matt Miofsky, began out of a belief that church could be different.  Matt, along with a group of mission minded people, had a  deep desire to make a significant impact on our city.   This vision continues to evolve, bringing new generations of people together to serve and worship Jesus Christ, not only in our city, but beyond.

Since its beginning, The Gathering has continued to see dramatic growth.  Multiple sites, numerous worship services, intentional online worship, a variety of small groups, a blossoming children’s ministry,  an engaging student ministry, allies of and support of a growing LGBTQ+ community and a commitment to serving our city and our world are just a few of the ways in which we are expanding our reach.  We look forward to the future, and hope that you will be a part of our emerging history and what God is doing through our growing community.

What to Expect

The Gathering is a casual, vibrant and fully welcoming community where everyone belongs.  You’ll find awesome environments for kids, students and adults that provide compelling messages, eclectic worship and the finest people around.
