Our Senior Leaders

Raymond and Deborah Larson are the Senior Pastors of The Gathering-Reno Community Church.  Raymond has poured his life out for the cause of Christ since he was 16 years old. He Pastored over 30 years building both a Singles group of 1800 in Sacramento, CA and then Bethel Church in Redding, CA where he and 50 members grew to 2000 and then built the existing facility growing to nearly 4000 members in just 11 years. The Lord called Raymond to return to business where he has been for the last 20 years.  Deborah had her 1st encounter with Jesus and the Holy Spirit when she was 7 years old.  She too has poured out God’s love on others in the business sector for over 35 years.  In 2014, the Father evicted them from Austin TX and sent them to Reno NV on His mission from 2014-2017.  They successfully established Everett & Larson Financial Services when the Lord said “Now”.  Together they have built a team of locals, transplants, and new believers who freely and passionately embrace community through relationship.  We believe LOVE is tangible, not religious, and it lasts as Jesus taught. Today our Community is actively pursuing God’s presence and purpose for this City. Individually and Corporately we are engaging others who want to experience authentic and seasoned leadership in a Church who loves without judgment. We have saved you a seat!
