In September of
2000, Paul and Janna began gathering together with
other folks in homes just trying to sort out what father was doing. As these
relationships began to grow, more people were drawn together. They began to have
meetings called Life Gatherings.
11 families and couples meet together in separate homes to worship and share the
life of Christ in an environment small enough that they can interact, and on
alternating weeks, come all together to worship corporately and share the Word.
The Lord has
gathered new musicians around Paul and Janna and they have begun to record a new
CD, which is due out this year. He has graciously allowed us to preview some of
