Paul Jenkins is the Lead Pastor at The Gathering, and he is passionate about seeing people experience the life that comes from being in close relationships with God and others. His vision to see people being brought near God through Christ in order to be sent to those far from Him drives everything we do at The Gathering.

After spending over 2 decades ministering in churches as a youth pastor and worship leader, Pastor Paul spent 5 years on the road speaking in churches, universities, and other venues. It was during this time that God began to form a hunger in Paul to see what would happen if a body of passionate followers of Christ really began to serve the hurting in a local setting. The Gathering seeks to be that body.

Paul is the author of 2 books, the father of 3 children – Parker, Will, and Sydney – and the husband of one wife, Wendy. He loves running, reading, the NFL (Panthers!!), and drinking Starbucks coffee while spending time on a myriad of Apple products.

He also loves to laugh - a lot! - and as a huge fan of Seinfeld, nothing makes him laugh harder than this clip.
