About the Gathering

What is now known as the Heartland Men's Gathering was birthed in the late 1990's as approximately 800-1000 men from five states surrounding the Great Lakes converged on what was then known as George Williams College on the shore of Lake Geneva, WI. This two-weekend annual event each fall was filled with dynamic teaching, strong worship and refreshing fellowship.


After taking several years off, the gathering was restarted in 2011 at Conference Point Center in Lake Geneva, WI. In 2015, the gathering was moved to Lake Williamson Christian Center in Carlinville, IL. In 2020, in order to reach more men in our district, a second location was added on the same weekend. This location is at Bair Lake Bible Camp in Jones, MI.


Although the majority of men who attend the gathering come from Foursquare Churches the gathering is open to all men (ages 14+).
