SPREAD LIKE FIRE, FALL LIKE RAIN
When the love of Jesus increases – in a life, a community, a region – darkness is displaced. That transformation can spark in a moment and spread like fire from the inside out.
Inspired by 1Nation1Day and by what God has done in Honduras and the Dominican Republic, we believe that same spark is igniting here in Kerr county. Love Kerr County wants to spread that fire, meeting the needs in our community like rain poured out on parched ground.
JOIN THE MOVEMENT
Thousands have now come together for a day of serving and celebrating in the name of Jesus. What happens next is up to you.

Join us for encouraging progress reports, details on community outreaches, and how you can make a practical and lasting difference.
SINCE THE GATHERING 2014
Last year, on October 5, over 2000 came out on a Sunday night to Antler Stadium. Some met Jesus for the first time, some were healed. All of us experienced the love of Jesus. Since that spark, we’ve seen the following shift in Kerr County.
Kerr Jobless Rate dips to 7-year low
A three-year rain drought has been broken
Kerr county wages are up
New business: Chick-Fil-A comes to Kerrville along with a new Burger King
KISD has 2nd year in a row to earn all seven distinction designations
“For Tivy to be among the top four percent of achievers in the state is a wonderful feat. To be able to accomplish this for two consecutive years is truly remarkable,”
– Dan Troxell, KISD Superintendent.
New manufacturing: Mooney is building airplanes again and James Avery launches a new manufacturing facility.
What is behind Love Kerr County?
Love Kerr County is meant to be a venue for inspiring, celebrating and encouraging practical demonstrations of the love of Jesus increasing in Kerr County. The Gathering is a moment that’s meant to inspire the Love Kerr County movement.

You mentioned 2 countries being changed. Tell me more about this.
In 2013, Honduras, previously the most violent non-warzone country in the world, participated in a single event that changed the course of history. Recently in 2015, the Dominican Republic joined hands as a nation and made the same commitment to shift the future of their nation. Already, the climate is changing.
