Gateway's Student Ministry is designed to engage students in grades 7-12 with the life changing message of the Gospel.  Through Bible studies, community groups (Life Groups for teenagers), service projects, trips, and fellowships, the youth of Gateway are given opportunities to grow in having a dynamic relationship with Jesus and to be equipped to make a difference with their lives wherever they are. 

Student pastor, Drew Burton, is joined by a team of adults from Gateway who love students and invest in their lives. Through community with these adults leaders and with one another, the youth of Gateway are challenged to grow in their knowledge of God and to glorify God with their lives.


Sunday Bible Study ~ 9 a.m.
On Sunday mornings, Gateway's youth have a Bible study time together in the youth rooms.

Wednesday Evenings ~ 6 p.m.
On Wednesday evenings, our youth come back together for an evening of Bible study, fellowship, and food.  Before and after the Bible study time, the church gym is open for basketball and a place to hang-out.  Pizza is also provided each week.

Community Groups ~ During the week
Small discipleship groups are available during the week.  During these times, the youth meet with a leader who helps them think about how to live out the Scriptural truths they are learning and how to walk with God.
