About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we are heading as Church Family

Who We Are

We exist to be a committed community of Christ followers dedicated to growing in faith, living whole lives, and seeking justice for the good of our neighbors


Here’s the deal, Missiongathering Christian Church (DOC) cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Missiongathering is a family of individuals that have found hope, love, and imagination in the message of Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom and healing

Where We Come From

Missiongathering Christian Church was born in San Diego California in 2012 out of the Vision and Dreams of Planting Pastor Rich McCullen to provide a worship space that welcomed people from all walks of life into its doors.

Missiongathering Charlotte was born out of the desire to see a church community that truly welcomed everyone planted in the heart of the Queen City in January of 2016. We wanted a place where everyone was welcomed to the table regardless of their personal background, financial stability, race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, family background, or religious affiliations.

Where Are We Heading

Since planting Missiongathering in Charlotte our two Churches have become a movement for radical inclusion and grace. Planting 3 more new churches in Issaquah Washington, Thornton Colorado, and Pasadena California. We believe that every city and neighborhood should have a place where all are welcomed to gather and grow in their knowledge of God, themselves, and how to love their neighbors.

What This Means For You

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you’re always welcome at Missiongathering. We’re saving a seat for you. Wherever you’re at in your faith journey, you’ll always be accepted as part of the MG family.
