A church should feel like a family. It shouldn't feel like an event to attend, but a community where you belong. That's why we have created a path for people to follow -- so that you can surround yourself with community, strengthen your Christian faith, and use your God-given talents to help others.
But don't think of the Gateway Path as a course. Think of it as a way to find your purpose and your people, because there's more for you at Gateway Church than just attending a Sunday service!
