The Gathering at Sandestin is a local non-denominational worship service located in the Sandestin Resort in Miramar Beach, Florida. We meet every Sunday at 10 AM usually in the Terrace Room of the Linkside Conference Center in Sandestin. It is located across the street from the Links Golf Course. All denominations are welcome to attend, including locals, their guests and our visitors to the resort. Dress is resort casual.
The Gathering started on October 31, 2011. Its minister is Billy Gray, who also runs the Billy Gray Ministries, which spreads the gospel of Jesus Christ all over the world. Our Worship Leader is David Seering, a local entertainer and musician. He is accompanied by Don Kupski on the keyboard, Amanda Holmes, soprano, Lori Seering, alto, and Jay Stone, bass. The music is a mix of traditional, gospel, and contemporary Christian.
We have a very traditional service, with singing, the reciting of the Apostle's Creed, an offering, Communion every week, a Scripture lesson, and a message by Billy Gray, or a substitute minister, like the retired Bishop of the North American Anglican Church or a professional actress who is renowned for her Christian teachings. Both are Sandestin residents. You are invited to come and worship with us any and all Sundays.

If you missed the incredible Easter service , you can watch it by clicking on Previous Services for April 16. We had about 700 people gathered in the Linkside Exhibit Hall. Billy Gray preached another wonderful sermon and the music by David Seering and The Gathering Praise Singers was really something special. Shirley Simpson and Joel Butler both read passages from the Bible. The lighting, the sound system and the video screen really made for a spectacular Easter program. We urge you to watch it.
