About TGP

Welcome to The Gathering Place!

The Gathering Place is a new, exciting church in Port Neches, Texas. We meet at 1011 Grigsby in Port Neches on Sundays at 10:30 AM & Wednesday at 6:30 PM.

Whether you have been involved in church your entire life or this is the first time you have considered going to church, you can expect a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for you to freely learn about and experience God.

The Gathering Place is a place for people just like you to grow in your relationship with God. At TGP, we welcome people from all walks of life. Our goal is to be a place where people feel the presence of Christ from the moment they enter our church.

We desire to be the church that God has called us to be—a church built on passionate prayer, authentic relationships, heart-felt worship and compassion for others. We want our love for God and others to be contagious so that we can make an irrevocable impact on our community and world.

God bless you!
Pastor John Ortiz & Pastor Jeff Ortiz

What to expect

At TGP, you’ll be welcomed into a lively, friendly environment where you will be greeted by smiling faces, who are genuinely excited for you to be here. On your way into service, feel free to grab a cup of coffee and make yourself at home.

Here at TGP we have two ways for you to worship with us; in person or online!

Regardless of how you choose to worship with us, a typical Sunday service will last a little more than an hour. You can expect a powerful worship experience with encouraging, up-lifting music followed by a biblically-sound teaching by one of our Pastors.

We can’t wait to meet you!
