Gene and Karen Wolfenbarger and their two sons, Corey and Seth reside in Seymour, Tennessee. Gene is the founder and lead pastor of The Gathering Church.  He is also the founder of The LORD’S Child Ministry, a humanitarian organization that reaches out to families around the world.

Gene and Karen believe that marriage is a covenant, not a contract and a biblical marriage is the foundation to building a strong and healthy family. 

Each year The Gathering hosts a Marriage Equip Class.  It is designed to celebrate and encourage marriages not only within the church family but the surrounding communities.
