The Gathering was birthed in the office of Prophet Kim Clement after one of his meetings. He had prophesied that mega churches, in years to come, would be a thing of the past. Kim said smaller ‘gatherings’ would take place and groups of people would ‘gather’ and as these ‘gatherings’ happened, God would show up in a miraculous way, for there was no longer a ceiling on Him. Allowed to direct the meeting, the Holy Spirit would perform signs and wonders and we would do the greater works, as the Bible declares. That was where The Gathering was birthed.
Even before Kim Clement spoke those prophetic words from God...
In 1986 Dennis had an encounter with God that set the path for his entire life. God audibly spoke the words in a loud echoing voice, “Save my Church!” God repeated it 3 times in a row to stress the importance and gravity of His command. At first, Dennis questioned the mandate because why would you need to save His church. But after years of searching and receiving revelation, he finally knew what God had meant. We are to save the church from the bondages of religion and deliver it from the rule of the spirit of Jezebel. We are to completely oppose manipulation and control; we are to come against compromise, mediocrity and tradition.
Mark 7:13 New International Version
Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.”
We are to come against teaching with mixture that dilutes of power of God and we are to declare to the religious spirits who have deceived the leadership of the church, release your hold upon the pastors! They will no longer be lulled to sleep by a demonic lullabye, that puts the church to sleep in a false reality of dreams that promises everything but delivers nothing.
1 Corinthians 2:4-6 New International Version
My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
John 14:12 New King James Version
Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
And here we are in 2021. We are finally seeing the birthing of The Gathering through our International Gathering Prayer Calls as well as God connecting key people to our ministry which will allow us to forge ahead.
Currently, we are strategically planning to launch our first Gathering meeting with many others around the country. As this unfolds, we will keep you updated.
Please keep us and The Gathering in your prayers.
In Christ’s Service,
Delora & Dennis
