Senior High Gathering


Sr. High Mini-Gathering Events 

November 13 and 14, 2021

Cincinnati, Columbus, Napoleon, Cleveland regions. 


Senior High teens are busier than many in today's society with school, jobs, sports and friends. How do we help keep them connected to Christian friends, the church and more importantly - Jesus? One weekend a year, the one prior to Thanksgiving, the Ohio District hosts a Gathering just for high school youth and their chaperones. It has meaningful presentations, discussions, worship, music, service and more all coordinated by the high school teens on the Ohio District Youth Ministry Team.

The dates and locations are:

  • Saturday, November 13, Messiah, Cincinnati (Southern Region)
  • Saturday, November 13, Living Word, Galena (Central Region)
  • Sunday, November 14, St. Paul, Napoleon (Northwest Region)
  • Sunday, November 14, Community of Hope , Broadview Heights (Northeast Region)

(Note: You may register for the event in a different region if it fits your group’s needs)

The Mini-Gathering in each location will go from 1:00 to 8:30 p.m. with Registration opening at 12:30 p.m.

Each day, while the first location is having music and the keynote presentation in the afternoon, the other location will be having Bible Study, Community Building and other breakout sessions. When the ‘assembly’ in the first location has ended, the presenters will move on to the second location. Everyone will be getting keynotes by Micah Parker and music by Jamie Mitchell for the assemblies.

The cost for the 2021 Sr. High Mini-Gathering is $50 per person. This fee covers the honorarium and travel costs for our presenters. A dinner meal and snacks are also included at each location.

The post-mark deadline to register is October 25, 2021.

All REGISTRATION forms, LIABILITY RELEASE forms and ENTIRE payment on one church check for each group should be sent to:
