Matthew 25 Gathering

We are excited to host The Matthew 25 Gathering for the Anglican Church in North America from February 19-21.  

Volunteering: Many of you are opening your homes so that participants can experience gracious lodging.  Thank you!  We are looking for people to help provide a smooth registration process and attentive on-site hospitality (serving meals, making coffee, etc…).  Please visit to sign up as a volunteer.

On-Site Prayer: We are looking for over 50 people from Restoration to provide prayer during the Gathering.  It is one of the largest mobilizations of prayer people in our history and I am excited to see how God uses it in our community.  We believe that you will enjoy serving during the Gathering.  Sign up for a prayer slot or two today at

Wednesday, February 20, at 7pm:  as an expression of appreciation to Restoration, the whole church is invited to attend the evening plenary session of The Matthew 25 Gathering in our sanctuary.  Dr. Vincent Bacote of Wheaton College will be speaking on The Political Disciple and a theology of public life.  It will be fascinating and we would love for you to come.
