Gathering House


Hope HKY has partnered with a ministry on campus at Lenoir-Rhyne University called The Gathering House. This ministry, led by Karen Johnson (aka Momma K) exists to share the gospel with the students of Lenoir-Rhyne University by expanding the intimate space of “home” to create a community that is set apart for cultivating and facilitating Christian relationships and discipleship. GH has weekly bible study meetings on Monday evenings help in the ARC Building right off of campus.
