This is the Gathering's version of church membership. These people have more responsibility within the community, can vote on community issues, have a mentoring relationship with an individual from SLT, and can hold a position on either SLT or the Coordinators teams. Our members don't warm pews. We wouldn't let them even if we had pews. Hardcore are included in scheduled cleaning of the Gathering, and are expected to seek Christ and grow in the community. A person wishing to be Hardcore must sign the Hardcore Covenant.
