  • GATEWAY WORSHIP: THE STORY BEHIND THE HYPE
    current Southlake Campus during Gateway s third year As the building was constructed the church continued to grow By Easter 2004 the congregation reached around 5 000 and it currently stands at just under 17 000 members actively involved November 2007 saw the church complete its second major campus build as Gateway NRH North Richland Hills opened its doors a 50 000 square foot building on nine acres of land now also running multiple weekend services Plans for multiple other campuses located across the US are afoot All About People So what has contributed to Gateway s exponential growth Robert Morris says that Though many new and dynamic ministries have been and continue to be created to help minister to individuals and families in the midst of all this exciting activity we recognise that church health is more important that numerical growth and church programs At Gateway we recognise that God has a specific plan and purpose for each person s life That s why we re all about people The scope and variety of ministries at Gateway are simply a reflection of our heart to help people of all economic social and ethnic backgrounds Gateway s vision is fairly simple based on Jesus stated mandate for His own ministry expressed in Luke 4 to preach the Gospel to the poor heal the broken hearted and the sick and to proclaim freedom from oppression The desire of Robert and his team is to see people saved healed set free discipled equipped and empowered for a life of service to God To that end their ministry has been deliberately angled to recognise the needs of individuals in order to help each person find their purpose in God and live it out according to His will The goal of Gateway s discipleship programs is very much about touching the lives of others So much so that Gateway s strapline has become We re all about people We demonstrate our love for God through our love for people Robert says Helping each person experience an intimate relationship with God Good church programmes alone cannot change people s hearts but an encounter with the Living God always changes people Our aim therefore is to introduce people to the intimate and life changing presence of God The church s time of worship then is a vital feature of any gathering Many have become familiar with the worship of Gateway especially through the ministry of Kari Jobe who just received two Dove Awards for her music The way in which Kari leads worship complements Robert s desire to create an environment in which God can draw people into His presence Looking Outwards Robert s dream for Gateway was always twofold firstly an effective church that touched its region and secondly one that would reach beyond When Gateway began Robert had no idea how God would grow the church and use it to impact Southlake let alone what beyond might look like But now Gateway is taking
