A great way to get connected here at The Gate is to join one of our ongoing ministries.
Sundays at 12pm (before 1:30pm worship service)
The purpose of The Gate Church is to glorify God by making disciples, which means fully devoted followers of Christ. The primary means employed to disciple believers are expository preaching, community group interaction, and personal one-on-one discipleship.
At The Gate church we have a multi-layered Discipleship Program that gives the disciple time with someone who takes responsibility for their spiritual growth. They receive theological training, biblical accountability, and opportunities to serves in various ways utilizing their spiritual gifts. (Matthew 28:19-20, 2 Timothy 2:2)
Every 4th Saturday at 8:00am
"Then God said, "Let us MAKE man in our image, after our likeness."-Gen. 1:26
"Go therefore and MAKE disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." -Matt. 28:19-20
We weren't created by evolution. We were MADE by God. Disciples weren't born, they were MADE. The focus of MadeMen is to make disciples who uplift our Maker. We meet on Saturday mornings for systematic theology class, prayer, devotional, accountability, and practical manhood application workshops.
One of the outlets for every-member ministry is small community group ministry. Such fellowships are employed to evangelize the lost, equip the saved, foster intimacy, form authentic relationships, and minister to the individual needs in the body.
At The Gate Church these groups meet in homes once a week, engaged in a curriculum, biblical accountability, and amazing fellowship. Our groups are also one of our main units for evangelism and service to our community.
Once a month all groups go into a specific area in University City to serve, engage the culture, and communicate the gospel with our lives and lips. We believe Christianity is not a spectator sport, so we work as Christ’s example exemplified. (Acts 2:42-47)
Every 2nd Monday and last Friday at 6:30pm
Redeemed & Reloaded is the women’s ministry at The Gate Church. Our name speaks to who we are and what we are about. We are REDEEMED, no longer walking “according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2). God has “delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son” (Colossians 1:13). We are REDEEMED by the blood of the Lamb.
And we are not only REDEEMED, but also RELOADED. Before, we thought like the enemy wanted us to think and moved like he wanted us to move. He loaded our minds with lies, and we fired his ammunition into our surroundings.
But we are hitting “delete” on the lies that filled our hard drives—our minds—and reloading with TRUTH.
To that end, our women meet on Monday nights for Bible studies as well as “life on life” sessions, where we discuss real-life issues that pertain to women, from a biblical perspective. By God’s grace, we are being transformed and RELOADED with divine ammunition to fire into culture and make an impact for the glory of God.
