On behalf of the leadership team of our “family-of-churches, I would like to clarify the “BIG WHY” of our Tribal Gathering and extend an invitation to you and your friends to come and be a part.
God is an extraordinarily good and generous “Daddy”. After all, Christ called Him “Abba” which is the most intimate term of endearment for “Father”. “Abba” means “Daddy”! Your “Daddy” loves to initiate “Family Gatherings-Celebrations” because He wants to create atmospheres and settings that saturate His children in His love and ways. Great fathers plan wonderful adventures and opportunities for their children. Tribal Gathering is “Daddy’s” gift to you and many others. The Tribal Gathering is a wild and crazy combination of wilderness adventures, spontaneous & intimate relational connections with Christ and others, upgrades in perspectives, supernatural encounters, powerful worship & prayer, rich fellowship, and so much fun! The “Big Why” of our Tribal Gathering is to grow deeper in intimate love with Father & Family, so that together we can advance Christ’s kingdom on earth.
Rock Tribal Gatherings were created to be a catalyst for three kingdom realities for those who attend: Revival, Restoration of the Church into Family, and the Transformation of cities and nations via Christ’s ever-expanding kingdom. Every planned and spontaneous activity is designed to facilitate a divine encounter, relational intimacy, personal growth, and increased love. Abiding love results in great fruit. Wilderness adventures, for example, allows an opportunity to experience God in His beautiful creation, and playing together tends to help our hearts open up to one another. The meals afford an opportunity to connect and meet new family members.
Tribal Gathering is NOT a conference. It is a Family Gathering-Celebration that focuses on relationships, but also includes prophetic teaching – like from Graham Cooke. Often, people are just as impacted by the spontaneous and supernatural heart connections they experience between family members, as they are by the teaching.
Why registration fees? It takes substantial finances to host a big event like the Tribal Gathering. There are expenses for food, children’s ministry, outdoor recreation, speaker honorariums, travel, housing, scholarships, materials, etc. We anticipate this year’s Tribal Gathering will require around $20,000. That is actually very reasonable when you think about having a family reunion for 300-500 people. The combined registration fees usually only cover about half the cost of Tribal, the other half comes from offerings. In addition, we like to support our international mission’s purposes in Myanmar & Mexico. Your registration fee is an investment in revival, restoration, transformation and helps those who cannot afford Tribal to come anyway.
We want everyone to come to Tribal. Don’t think of registration as paying for your personal meals, materials, or training, etc. Think of the registration fee as a small investment in a BIG Life-changing Family Gathering that will have a profound and lasting impact on many men, women, and children. See it as supporting others, not just yourself. We value what we sacrifice for, so it’s important that everyone contribute. Capture and “own” the bigger vision in your heart for the whole Body of Christ, not just your personal story. There are inner-city children and the poor from other nations that need to experience this kind of love in this catalytic “greenhouse” affection-filled environment. Your registration fee helps that happen!
The event is a total experience in receiving more of the Father’s love, getting to know your family members better and loving them more. All that and yea more! Your attendance at Tribal is every bit as important as the attendance of Graham Cooke!
Begin to save now towards paying the whole fee.
Let’s have all our “tribe”, each person in each location, clear their calendars, ask for vacation time and sign up now. We would like to know, sooner rather than later, if you are coming, so that we can best serve you, and to start praying for the people gathering.
