     Pastors Stephen J. Horridge and his wife Sandra began in ministry in 2009 with the founding of Inspired Living Ministries.  The original vision was to teach pastors and leaders about their true power and identity while going into the darkest parts of the world with the hope and freedom that a relationship with Jesus brings.   Over the years, the couple has helped build two orphanages and support pastors and children in the Inspired Living Children's Home in the southern region of India and most recently, Bungoma Kenya.  

In 2013, the coupled received a word from the Lord and embarked on a journey with their family moving from New England to Colorado to attend Charis Bible College.  After 4 amazing years of transformation, preparation, and spiritual renewal - Stephen and Sandra felt prompted to return back home to New England with a new purpose, vision, and direction.


Called to New England...

 In 2017, Stephen and Sandra purchased and renovated a historic property in the coastal seaside town of Tiverton, Rhode Island, and opened a church now known as The Gathering Place. As a pastor, Stephen felt called to historic New England to reignite the spirit of true freedom in man’s hearts.


"I believe it takes courage, unity, and biblical truth to stand up to evil.  We have been called to reclaim our true identity and the freedom that our forefathers built our nation upon". 

Pastor Stephen J. Horridge

To reignite true freedom and Godly heritage in New England establishing unity within the Body of Christ.


The Gathering Place ministers the foundations of freedom found in God’s Word, revealing to the Body of Christ their true identity and authority.  Our passionate and resolute family stands to: build up, encourage and inspire God’s people to fight for true freedom in their lives, families and communities while taking their rightful place in God’s Kingdom.


We are blessed to be located in one of the most picturesque and quaint New England coastal towns here on the East Coast.  As a Christian body of believers, we are called to be a light to this community telling people the good news and extending the love of Jesus to those we serve.
