hello there, and

Welcome to The Village

Established in 2015, The Village is dedicated to helping individuals build and establish their community through our GATHER THE VILLAGE events, magazine, online community, and Podcast. Founded by Krystal Festerly, coincidentally the same day as the birth of her second daughter Maxine. Krystal passionately believes that honest conversation and story telling are the building blocks to creating a long lasting and meaningful community.
