"A church for all."

About us

We are a church plant and growing body of faithful believers, responsible neighbors, and committed disciples.

We intentionally create a space where everyone can feel comfortable, regardless of your past, or your present. We preach the gospel of Jesus Christ as the one and only way to God the father. Come check us out and embrace the difference!


Isaac, his wife Diorca, and their daughter, Ava, are long-time Long Island residents with a strong call to Hempstead and neighboring communities. After many years of serving in various Spanish speaking ministries in Nassau, they felt a call from God to plant a church that would reach the English speaking residents in those same areas.  Both Isaac and Diorca are passionate about relationships, family, discipleship and serving the community. The family shares an excitement to meet more and more people and to serve them with love and grace. Should you ever decide to visit us, at The Gathering, please be sure to stop them and introduce yourselves (expect a BIG hug)!

The Badaracos


At The Gathering, we believe that our relationship with God is more than just “going to church”. We believe it is about a true relationship with God, through Jesus, along with deep and intentional relationships with our neighbors and community.

"For where two or three are GATHERED in my name, there am I among them."
Matthew 18:20 (ESV)
