Regional Gathering, West

Regional Gatherings are events for the EMCC family of pastors, leaders and global workers. With one event in the East and the other in the West, these twin events are held between General Assemblies. 

It is a time for inspiration, celebrating what God is doing in our midst, learning, connecting, and facilitating family conversations.
