Central College hosts BIG Dream Gathering to connect dreamers with support


Pella — Thousands of dreamers

Over the past few years, tens of thousands of dreams have been posted on walls and countless connections have been made. Everything from an elementary teacher getting the help she needed to send truckloads of school supplies to Africa to a couple of people connecting at a gathering and then working together to attain a contract with NIKE®.  

“It’s been amazing to see what happens when people just have a safe environment to think about their big dreams and then possibly get some help with them.” says Matthews.

At the Central College event, registration begins at 6 p.m. Matthews will share an inspirational message at 6:30. Participants can then start dreaming big and begin to read and comment on each other’s dreams at 7:15.

Wade Steenhoek, director of the Martin Heerema Entrepreneurship Program and the organizer of the event at Central, says, “It’s a fun way to connect because people can just come, think about their big dreams and then possibly get the help they need to do something—maybe through an encouraging word or maybe through a connection or some support. You just never know.”

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Wade Steenhoek at or 641-628-5917.
