2017 Junior Gathering Staff Information

Junior Gathering is made possible through the gifts and dedicated work of nearly 100 loving adults. Each group of children has an experienced Coordinator that takes the lead on planning the week for that group. The Coordinator is joined by support staff to work with the children during the morning (8:45 - 12:30) or evening (6:30 - 9:15) sessions.
