Staff & Elders


Glen Whatley - Pastor

Glen felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to start The Gathering Place with our founding elders in 2006 and was the Lead Pastor for the first 6 years. When the Lord led us to start a new campus, Glen and Tylitha were called to be the leaders of the church plant. Glen has a heart for God and a desire to see people come to know Him by experience.


Coby Norman - Worship Minister

Coby and Carlee have been with The Gathering Place West since 2015. Coby has a heart for the Lord and leads the worship team and congregation to celebrate Jesus each week. Coby's passion for Christ is evident and contagious!


Will and Bethany Butterfield

Will and Bethany Butterfield have been with The Gathering Place since we began. They love people! Will is one of our elders and he and Bethany are passionate about ministering to youth in our church and neighborhood. They are such a blessing to our community, demonstrating the love of Christ through weekly activites, bible studies, and serving as advocates for teens in need.
