Each night of the Gathering we will come together in the NRG Stadium for a time of inspiring speakers, uplifting music and more. Be a part of the Mass Gatherings by indicating your group’s interest in Mass Casts when you register.

Our speakers will share how God’s call, God’s love, God’s grace and God’s hope changed everything in their lives. Be watching here in the months to come as we release speaker names and bios.

Our house band leads us in singing each night. You will sing some of your favorite praise songs and hymns and you will learn some new favorites!

Throughout the Gathering, special guest bands will join us to share their love of Christ and neighbor through song. Announcements on our special guest musicians coming soon.

On Sunday, July 1 we will gather one last time in the stadium for closing worship and the eucharist.  Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will preach and we will celebrate and remember that Jesus Changes Everything! Be a part of closing worship by indicating your group’s interest in being Communion assistants when you register.
