Gather is an award-winning magazine that reaches more than 100,000 women throughout the Lutheran (ELCA) church and other full communion partners. Gather connects women of all ages with others who are committed to growing in faith and sharing the good news of God’s love–next door and across the globe.

Gather is published by Women of the ELCA, the women’s organization of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The award–winning magazine is a high-quality, 52-page, four-color publication with a paid circulation of about 52,000 and a pass–along rate of about 30,000 more.

  • The magazine is published six times a year with combined (52-page) issues in Jan/Feb and July/August. The magazine is mailed directly to subscribers; there are no news stand sales.
  • Over the past decade, Gather has won many awards, including Best in Class, from the Religion Communicators Council and the Associated Church Press for its articles, covers, illustrations, photography, layout and design, and Bible studies.
