Our mission at Gateway Church is to connect people to Jesus Christ and to one another. To do this we equip people with the teachings of the Gospel, and help mobilize them to be on mission with God to fulfill the “Great Commission” Matthew 28:19-20.
By equipping and mobilizing Gateway’s Life Groups we can partner with local organizations and missionaries to take the Gospel to our community.
By praying, giving, and going we partner with missionaries around the world and send out short - term teams to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. This gives us an opportunity to make a global impact!
Short Term Mission Trips
Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
The purpose of our short term mission trips is to provide those in our Gateway family who are already committed to regular worship and growing in their relationship with Christ an opportunity to participate in what God is doing in other parts of our region, our country, and around the world. Although short term trips are often life-changing for participants, we do not go because of what we will experience, but we go in order to be a blessing and join the work of God’s servants throughout the world.
We have a variety of mission opportunities coming up, both regionally as well as internationally. Trips are generally open to all Gateway attendees, but for trips with limited space, preference will be given to members who have shown a commitment to our values of Worship, Connect and Serve.
Because we want trips to be accessible, Gateway helps to subsidize the cost of each trip for attendees. (This assistance is already taken into account in the trip cost information given here.) Because we believe there is value in inviting others to participate in the mission either financially or through prayer, we ask all trip participants to raise at least ½ of their trip cost through personal fundraising efforts. (Support raising resources and help is provided as part of team training.)
