Gateway’s On Track ministry, based at our Mackenzie campus, provides practical support to people in our community who are in need.  We help people be self-sufficient and rediscover their self-respect while offering friendship and care, all with a view to assist individuals and families get back on track.  On Track is an intentional three month program teaching life skills to clients and giving them access to food parcels, resources for their homes, and vouchers to purchase items from the Opp Shop.

Reaching our world

By sending people to share the life changing message of Jesus, and investing resources and establishing ministries to fight poverty and injustice, we’re changing the world. We’re shining the light of Jesus and seeing people redeemed and restored in:

MAKE IT YOUR MISSION to PRAY

We pray as if life depends on it because when we trust in God we see lives transformed, families redeemed, communities restored, nations impacted and the world changed.

When we as a church MAKE IT OUR MISSION to PRAY, God takes our prayers and transforms lives and situations in extraordinary ways that we may never know or see.

MAKE IT YOUR MISSION to GO

We go into our community, nation and world because we believe that everyone is valuable to God and needs to hear the life changing message of Jesus.

When we as a community of Jesus followers MAKE IT OUR MISSION to GO, God uses our Gateway people to teach, disciple, heal and rescue people who then influence and impact families, communities, nations and the world.

Mission teams

Through our mission teams, we’re bringing hope to the world – and transforming our own lives in the process.  Gateway mission teams visit countries around the world to participate in missions, help support long-term workers and deliver important projects.

By 2020, our vision is that everyone at Gateway will have participated in a mission team.

Experience first-hand the life-changing nature of a 1-3 week mission team experience where you’ll see God’s hand at work and give back to communities in need.  We’ve gathered a passionate group of team leaders who provide our Gateway community with wide range of mission team opportunities.

Next Wave
