Junior High Gathering

Winter Mini-Gathering Events 

March 12 and 13, 2022

Cincinnati, Columbus, Napoleon, Cleveland regions. 

The Ohio District Jr. High Gathering is an annual event designed by the Ohio District Youth Ministry Team for youth in grades 6, 7 and 8. This year, the Jr. High Gathering is combined with the Sr. High Gathering called the "2022 Winter Mini Gathering Event" and held in various locations within the Ohio District.  Everything at a Gathering is centered on growing faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior through keynote presentations, Bible Study and great Christian musicians. There is time in a Gathering schedule for making new friends, having fun, doing service and of course eating!

The dates and locations are:

  • Saturday, March 12, Messiah, Cincinnati (Southern Region)
  • Saturday, March 12, St. John, Dublin (Central Region)
  • Sunday, March 13, St. John, Defiance (Northwest Region)
  • Sunday, March 13, Royal Redeemer, North Royalton (Northeast Region)

(Note: You may register for the event in a different region if it fits your group’s needs)

The Mini-Gathering in each location will go from 1:00 to 8:30 p.m. with Registration opening at 12:30 p.m.

Each day, while the first location is having music and the keynote presentation in the afternoon, the other location will be having Bible Study, Community Building and other breakout sessions. When the ‘assembly’ in the first location has ended, the presenters will move on to the second location. Everyone will be getting keynotes by Bob Lenz and music by the Scally Brothers for the assemblies.

The cost for the 2022 Winter Mini-Gathering is $50 per person. This fee covers the honorarium and travel costs for our presenters. A dinner meal and snacks are also included at each location.

The post-mark deadline to register is February 15, 2022.
