AIA Coaches Wives Ministry


The primary purpose of this strategic project is to support THE GATHERING: Coaches' Wives Coming Together.

The mission of THE GATHERING is to provide a welcoming place for coaches' wives attending the National Association of Basketball Coaches' Convention at the Final Four to connect with women who share their common experience, use their resources to help others, and be encouraged, inspired and challenged by hope found in Jesus.

In 2020, our program made the pivot from a two-hour, in-person breakfast event to multiple on-line Zoom events that developed the theme of "Let's Get Real!" -- focusing on the necessity of "dropping the façade" in relationships while leaning on God and His promises. After four consecutive weekly programs in the earlier stages of quarantining, we shifted to monthly meetings then blossomed into multiple small group Bible Studies.

During Final Four weekend 2021, we will launch The Gathering '21: Rooted, Redefined, Resilient -- a pre-recorded event followed by two opportunities for LIVE Zoom connection with other coaches' wives.

Because of generous giving from friends like you, we are able to present THE GATHERING as a gift to the coaches' wives.

THANK YOU for considering how you can invest in the lives of the women who attend THE GATHERING and the countless others within their influence.

We are grateful for your investment as we seek to demonstrate the Gospel not only by encouraging, inspiring and challenging these dear sisters, but also loving and serving them... in the name of Jesus. For more information, please go to
