Gather Cincinnati

We new are a faith community of young adults from around Cincinnati. We are ELCA affiliated, but welcome people from all faith traditions. Gather is not a church but does have connections to young adults that attend churches throughout Greater Cincinnati.

Gather is space for anyone who identifies as a young adult. For young adults who don't have other young adults at their church, who aren't closely tied to their church. Or, who are, and who want to meet new people and connect their young adult church community to young adults all over Cincinnati. For young adults who might not jive with the traditional church; who want to ask questions and dive deep together; who may have had a hard time finding a church they connect with. 


This young adult ministry will be what you bring to it. We’re glad you’re here, and can’t wait to gather together. 


Gather Cincinnati is LGBTQIA+ affirming and eagerly invites siblings of any sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression into full leadership and participation. You are fully welcome here and we are grateful for your presence.


When: Sunday, April 11th @ 5:30-7:00 pm

Where: Rapid Run Park, 4450 Rapid Run Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45238

Our first gathering will be socially distanced and outdoors. Please wear a mask, and feel free to bring your own camp chair. We'll sing, pray, and engage in intentional conversation together. All young adults are welcome!


Sign up here to stay connected as we share more details of our next gathering. 

Partner Faith Communities

Currently Gather is connected to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Crestview Hills, First Lutheran Church in Over The Rhine, and St. Luke Lutheran Church in Campbell County, but we would love to connect with your church as well if you are a Pastor, Youth Director, or young adult currently connected with a church in the Great Cincinnati area, please reach out here so we can get connected to you and your church!

The purpose of First is to


We are a beautiful collection of people from all corners of the city. We are single, married, widowed, and divorced. We are day laborers, artists, construction workers, professionals, unemployed, children of all ages, and stay-at- home parents. Above all, we are all beggars needing the love and grace of God found in Jesus.

Wherever you are on your faith journey, whether you are committed to following Jesus Christ, are skeptical, or are just mildly curious about Christianity, we welcome you.
