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.
To learn a little more about our mission's philosophy check here.
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!

Cuba (March 24th - 30th / Cost - $950 per person – includes airfare, transportation, hotel, and most meals
Cuba is located in the northern Caribbean where the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean meet. It is the largest island in the
Caribbean and second-most populated with over 11 million inhabitants. Spanish is their official language. Cuba is officially a secular state. The government amended their constitution in 1992 to drop the state’s characterization as atheistic. This relaxation of restrictions from the government has led to an increase in house churches. The religious landscape however is strongly defined by syncretisms. For example, Christianity is often practiced in tandem with Santeria, a mixture of Catholicism and mostly African faiths.
- Purpose – To serve alongside the local pastor to connect people to Jesus Christ and to one another.
- Action – Help local house church pastors in leadership and training. VBS, Evangelism
Panama (October 6th - 13th) More information coming soon.
Pikeville, KY Family Trip (July 8th - 13th) / Cost – $300 per person
Shoes of Hope event that week and it is always a special time. Shoes of Hope is an event where we ask all of the mission teams attending to collect
brand new pairs of tennis shoes for school-aged children and bring them to Pikeville. On Thursday of that week, we give out the shoes. We measure
each child’s feet, we wash their feet and present the Gospel to them, and then present them with a brand new pair of tennis shoes and socks. It’s
amazing! In addition to Shoes of Hope, we need teams to help us with home repair, VBS and/or sports camps, etc.
- Purpose – To connect people to Jesus Christ and to one another through serving
- Action - To host a VBS, distribute shoes, and do light construction
