Our Vision

To see a generation of believers mature in Christ and live on mission for Christ

The Gathering is the college and career ministry of Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara. Join us on Fridays at 7pm for a contemporary-style service as we worship in community, dive into scripture, and pray for one another. We'll probably also have cold brew coffee.

What We Do

Real Friendships

Since the LORD exists in a perfect harmony of three Persons, we want to reflect His unity in our own relationships. We therefore practice truth, vulnerability, honor, and love toward one another in a joyful, warm community.

The Word
Living and Active

We teach God’s Word as our highest authority and guide. Therefore, we trust that faithful preaching will renew our minds and train us for God’s purposes.

The Word
Divine Encounter

As created beings, we find our highest fulfillment in the enjoyment of God’s glorious beauty. We therefore long to revere and rejoice in Him through music, whether it's a full band or one acoustic guitar.
