Share stories of hope. Engage with God’s heartbeat for the left behind. Host a Gathering.

Gathering Hosts are passionate, connected individuals with a desire to create a storytelling platform for our organization. Hosts connect us to 20-30 of their friends, family members, or coworkers by inviting them to attend a Gathering event. A One 17 Storyteller will share a TED-style presentation that shines a spotlight on hope and highlights how God is meeting the needs of the left behind through our work.
