It takes a lot of effort to put on the Gathering Of Circles! Much more than one or even a few. It takes a tribe!! Under the menu of JOBS, you can find descriptions of exactly what our coordinators do for you. The GOC Council hopes that you will review these descriptions and consider volunteering to help make the GOC experience better and better in the years to come. There are both large and small jobs. We hope YOU will help us and GIVE BACK!

GOC 2017 Theme & Call for T-shirt Designs

Greetings GOC Community!

The theme for this year’s event has been chosen: Pray Centered in Spirit.

Please begin thinking about T-shirt Designs based on the theme. We would like to have as many designs as possible from the community to choose from so we’ve started early.

No deadline defined yet, but that too will come along in the coming weeks. We want to select a design early so that we can sell many t-shirts for the GOC fundraiser!

I will create an actual page on this website to submit your designs very soon, but in the meantime, please feel free to submit t-shirt designs to Brett – or to Natalie –


Love Offerings for Tony Hayhurst’s Journey of Prayer and Healing

Greetings Dear GOC Family,

As you all know, our dear Brother, Tony Hayhurst, was severely injured on October 31st.

Tony’s healing journey is told by his wife, Shawna Mitchell-Hayhurst, on their Facebook page of the same name. Tony has been discharged from University Hospital in San Antonio and will make weekly trips there to see his surgeon and other members of her team. Read Shawna’s latest updates here:

Many of you have inquired how to make additional love offerings to Tony and Shawna to support their ongoing expenses in a way that goes directly to them. (Expenses including wound care supplies and for gas for the weekly trips to San Antonio for Dr. visits).

With this in mind, please use the PayPal link below to make donations. You may enter any amount you choose . Use your PayPal account or use a Credit Card via this link.

Your love offerings will go directly to Shawna’s PayPal account.

Enormous gratitude going out to Bobby Ashworth for hearing the desire for this outpouring of Love to Shawna and Tony and bringing it to the GOC Council!
