How The Gathering is Bringing Hope to New Orleans’ Ninth Ward

Jul 25, 2018

Just across the street from The Gathering church is the New Orleans’ Ninth Ward. In this video, Lead Pastor Matt Woodward tells us about a high school student who had been imprisoned three times and was now hiding in his house because people were after him. Matt says, “In other areas, that’s big news. In the ninth ward, it’s just any other kid.”

Stadia’s vision is to plant many more churches like The Gathering, churches that have a specific heart for caring for kids.

This post is part of a multi-part series telling the story of The Gathering church plant in New Orleans. Check out the series below.
