Where are YOU GOING in 2018?

Where are YOU GOING in 2018? One of our core values at Gateway is to be a going church, to go and spread the good news of Jesus to the ends of the earth. Maybe God has been nudging you, or maybe you know you need to go, but just haven’t taken that step to do so. Well here is your chance to Go. We have a domestic trip going to Pikeville, Kentucky in July and an International trip going in October. These are two great trips that will help you take that first step in GOING with the Gospel! So I ask again, Where are YOU GOING in 2018? You can sign up by going to our Missions page on our website and filling out the Mission Trip Application.

You can see some of the details for each trip below.

If you have no medical experience, that is ok; we need you, also. There will be plenty of opportunities on this trip to serve and share Jesus with the people of the Dominican Republic..

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. Then present them with a brand new pair of tennis shoes and socks. It’s amazing!
