WHAT KIND OF CHURCH IS GATEWAY FELLOWSHIP?
We are a church planting church started by a church planting church. What started in the San Antonio area has spread to the nations and into the Hill Country here in Kerr County. As part of the Gateway Fellowship Network, an international fellowship of like minded churches, we have a family bigger than our Sunday gatherings in one location, united in our mission is to "help friends become devoted followers of Jesus." We start with people right where they are and help them discover the love and call of God on their life to make disciples who make disciples. We want to point people to Jesus, help them take their next step in their relationship with Him and ultimately help them find their place in God's plan for the world.
Helping Friends Become Devoted Followers of Jesus!
Gateway Fellowship started as a small group of 8 people in John Van Pay’s living room on Labor Day weekend, 2007. With a God-sized burden, they wrote down the names of neighbors on a piece of butcher paper. A mission was born to help their friends become devoted followers of Jesus. This small group has grown to hundreds of small groups around the world.
John received a vision to start Gateway Fellowship Network, a church planting network. The purpose is to train and send teams to start new churches all over the world. One of those churches, GFC Kerr County, was started in 2019 in the same way. On May 3, 2017 Oscar & Charlie Dominguez opened the doors to their home with a small group of 5 people in their living room, passionate about making disciples, reaching their community, and helping their friends become devoted followers of Jesus.
GFC Kerr County has a vision to have 1,000 small groups, to plant 10 churches in the Hill Country, and send missionaries locally and globally. We also desire to meet the needs of our community through partnerships and local outreaches by being the hands and feet of Jesus to those he has called us to serve. Will you join the mission?
