The Gathering Place
The Pfeifers have been singing gospel music and traveling full time since the early 1980's. Over the years, they would be away from home for weeks at a time, home for a day or two, and then back on the road. Most of the time, they would travel wednesday-sunday, home monday and tuesday and then on the bus again wednesday. With this kind of schedule, John felt like they were losing touch in their home town of Washington Court House, Ohio. The Lord layed it on John's heart to start a weekly Bible Study on Wednesday nights downtown of WCH. After 8 years of studying God's word and the room filling up beyond the maximum capacity, John felt like God had something else in store and decided to meet on Sunday nights as well. The idea of Sunday nights was to "create opportunities to build relationships" such as Movie Nights, Healing Service's, Picnics, block party's, and anything else we could do to build relationships with unchurched people in our community. Not too long after starting Sunday Night Outreach, The Gathering Place evolved into a full-time Church! June 2010, we began having Sunday morning service in the Mayhan building at our local Fairgrounds. Since then, we have moved to another building within the Fairgrounds, and we are currently in the Washington High School Gymnasium. It is amazing how God is still using us to build His Kingdom, in a way we never imagined.
The Gathering Place has become a place of spiritual growth where relationships are being built with the Lord and within the body of Christ. Help us pray that our efforts will be fresh and effective; that we are able to teach His Word clearly so those attending will understand, comprehend, and apply the message of Jesus Christ in their lives.
Currently we are meeting on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. at 120 W. Court Street Suite 3 Washington Court House, Ohio 43160. We meet Sunday Mornings at 10:30 a.m. at the Washington Senior High School Gymnasium. 1200 Willard St. Washington Court House, OH 43160
At the Gathering Place, the atmosphere is LOVE! We strive to make everyone feel invited and welcome, just like visiting family. For the last 4 years, we've been a mobile church; going from one place to another to accommodate everyone and using different facilities for different events, etc. As of summer of 2014, God provided us with 25 acres of prime land right off of the highway for us to begin the process of "Building Our Family A Home". This year, we will start yet another season of our lives and in our ministry. We are so excited about what God is doing in our hometown of Washington C. H. and we are completely open to what His plans are moving forward.
You can now watch The Gathering Place LIVE online each week.
