Who We Are


Gathered by Grace

We are a community of faith, based in Montgomery, Alabama and engaging virtually across the country, gathered by Christ, growing spiritually, serving our community, getting to know our neighbor, welcoming all, and sharing the Good News of Jesus.

We GATHER in fellowship with other Christians, reaching to the margins to include all.

We GROW spiritually as we engage our world through a theological lens as people of faith, exploring how God is speaking and active in our world today.

We GO into the world to share the Good News of Jesus, as we strive to live the love of Christ in our words and actions, loving and serving our neighbor.

Meet Our Leader

Rev. Tiffany C. Chaney

Rev. Tiffany C. Chaney is an ordained minister of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). In January 2016, she moved back to Montgomery, AL to explore opportunities to develop new ministry with people in the greater Montgomery, Alabama, returning to the area from Boston, Massachusetts where she developed a congregation, The Intersection. Since that time, Gathered by Grace’s virtual ministry has blossomed to include people across the country.

Pastor Tiffany’s hope is to engage people in authentic ministry that helps us come to know and grow in our relationship with Christ, enlivens us spiritually, meets us where we are in our current season of life, and allows for theological discernment reflective of God’s grace for all. She wants to see people, empowered by the love of Christ, go out to make a difference in the River Region and beyond.
