SERVE WITH THE DEACONS
As you have heard, deacons will lead ministry teams to help meet the needs of the church family and the church campus. They are called to help equip and mobilize you to use your spiritual gifts in service! If you are looking for a way to begin to serve at Gateway, contact any of these men. A contact form to directly message each deacon is available at the bottom of our deacon page. Here are the ministry areas the deacons are overseeing:

Opportunities include helping monitor the security cameras during activities, growing our security response plan, and being prepared for medical response needs on campus
Sick care - Alex Hood

Opportunities include helping with regular maintenance on the church campus (such as changing light bulbs), doing small repairs, and helping plan for larger repair and improvement projects
If you have questions or want to learn more about any of those opportunities, please reach out to the deacon overseeing that ministry team.
We hope that you will join us in serving in these ways at Gateway!
