How the Movement Started

—The Peaceably Gather Sunday movement derives its name from the First Amendment of the Constitution, which states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

—The Peaceably Gather Campaign comes as a response to local elected leaders across the country unconstitutionally targeting any attempt of places of worship to safely gather their members.

—Over 200 churches opened their doors on Sunday, May 17, and participated in the Peaceably Gather campaign, and thousands are now joining

—Kelly Shackelford, president, CEO and chief counsel for First Liberty, has committed that its team will provide legal defense for any church across the country that has its First Amendment rights violated.

—First Liberty has represented numerous churches across the country during the pandemic and has won every case, including a federal statewide injunction opening all churches across Kentucky for safe in-person services

Pastor Brian Gibson is senior pastor of HIS Church, a nondenominational church with congregations in Owensboro and Henderson, Kentucky, as well as in Amarillo and Dumas, Texas. He is founder of the Peaceably Gather movement.

First Liberty Institute is the largest legal organization in the nation dedicated exclusively to defending religious liberty for all Americans.
