Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. -Matthew 18:20

Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ.  The Gathering Place is here for you. It is a fellowship of believers coming together to  celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together.


Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

H. Dan Mullins, Senior Pastor

As the Senior pastor, and author, Pastor Dan harvests the fruit of almost five decades of service, balanced bi-vocationally between serving as a pastor in the church and working in the world. He encourages church members about their particular role to evangelize and to edify in partnership with their pastor.


He is a gifted preacher and teacher who guides his people with genuine care and love. He and his wife have been married for over 40 years and have four grandchildren.  He recently published two books called  “Orchards: A Student Guide to Becoming A Fruit-Bearing Christian” and  “Orchards: A pastor’s Guide to Growing a Fruit Bearing Church.”


Dennis Huff, Associate Pastor 

Pastor Dennis’s main responsibility is teaching the youth and young adult ministry. Dennis currently is working on his Masters of Divinity degree at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.   He has been married to his wife Angela for 20 years and they have two children.






Jesus told us to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of the Gathering Place Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. The Gathering Place members are involved in a variety of ministries. 


Mission Outreach

The Gathering Place is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in supporting our Southern Baptist  missionaries with our money and with our prayers.  We help support local missions, with volunteers and food pantry donations.  We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.


 Wednesday Evening Dinner & Bible Study

Every Wednesday evening, volunteers prepare a dinner for our visitors and members starting at 6 pm.  There is no charge for the meal served.   Following the dinner, bible study begins at 7 pm.  Preschool, Children, Youth and Adult bible study classes available.


 Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. The Gathering Place Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Tuesday morning, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers  pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.


Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, The Gathering holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a  manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.


Vacation Bible School

Each summer, The Gathering Place Church hosts VBS. The week-long event involves games, a lot of teaching, good food, and great worship.  The entire VBS team looks forward to this important service. They find that their ministry is personally rewarding, and both children and teachers grow in the process. VBS is available for ages 4 years – 6th grade.

At The Gathering Place…

The Gathering Place Baptist Church is where people come together to grow in their faith. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at the Gathering Place Baptist Church.

Small Group

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, The Gathering Place has small bible studies held Sunday mornings and throughout the week.   The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve.  Wednesday nights are special as there is something for every age group beginning with dinner at 6 PM.

Youth Ministry

Each Sunday morning children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The youth ministry of the Gathering Place Baptist Church is recognized for their close interaction.

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

Women’s Group

Our  Women’s Groups gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.

Men’s Ministry Group

Our men’s group meets monthly and when needed for special ministries.  There is bible study and encouragement as we seek to build our families to be pleasing to the Lord by developing their spiritual lives.  There is always much laughter and fellowship and most importantly spiritual growth.

Married Couples

Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. The Gathering Place gives married couples the opportunity to join with other couples in fellowship and classes focusing on topics from marriage and money to getting ready for kids and shepherding them as they grow older.

Over 50’s

Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of The Gathering Place provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. A mentoring ministry gives older believers a chance to meet with and help younger believers grow in Christ.
