Because you care to Gather in His name, we have given over $1500 in scholarships to women and men attending a Christian college and sent nearly 200 men back into their communities to build the Kingdom.






Rev. Junius Dotson currently serves as the leader for Discipleship Ministries for the United Methodist Church.

As the General Secretary (Chief executive leader) of Discipleship Ministries, Rev. Dotson continues to respond to the challenges and opportunities of discipleship in new and creative ways. Come, be blessed by his exciting message about how we can grow disciples of Jesus Christ.
