Gateway is committed to plurality leadership that includes both elders and deacons. At Gateway, we are blessed with thirteen men who currently serve on our deacon team. What are deacons? They are a group of men in the church who are set apart to help meet the physical and material needs of the body. We believe that Acts 6 shows the first deacons serving to meet the needs that arose in the early church, while 1 Timothy 3 shows it to be a group of men who meet certain qualifications who are then set apart in the church to serve the Lord by serving the church family. At Gateway, all of the deacons minister in a variety of ways both on Sunday mornings and helping members with needs during the week. In addition, we have set apart some of the deacons to provide particular leadership over needs in the body. You will see their area of leadership responsibility indicated below.
