Welcome to the Gateway Church Network
You don’t have to do ministry alone. We are all on the same team, and we are here for you.
Spiritual health is key to church growth, but healthy churches don’t happen by accident. They are nurtured over time by intentional and passionate pastors and leaders who practice Christian leadership, spiritual formation, and biblical decision-making.
Thankfully, God did not intend for us to do the work of ministry alone. That’s why it’s important that we join together to reach as many people who don’t know Christ as possible, and disciple them to do the same.
We need each other. We would be honored to serve and walk alongside you as you courageously and successfully serve the Lord. The truth is, we’re all on the same team and in the battle for souls, together we will win.

What our members are saying
“The Gateway Church Network is a group of churches that chose to be in a relationship with one another. There are tremendous resources, mentoring, and learning that is provided. The most important benefit is the relationships you will develop to encourage and support you in your ministry.”
Pastor Charlie Jones
Fellowship of the Rockies
“We chose to be part of the Gateway Church Network for two reasons: relationships and resources. If you are frustrated with doing ministry alone, if you are looking for tools that can facilitate healthy ministry as well as staff and church growth; I strongly encourage you to become a part of the Gateway Church Network.”
Pastor Steve Owens
Real Life Church
“The resources and teaching provided by Gateway Church Network are a tremendous asset to all ministries. What I have found to be the greatest blessing for me is the relationships with other pastors. As a senior pastor, it’s hard to find a safe place to be honest with difficult situations and the pastors of the Gateway Church Network are that for me. Even in my personal life with my family as we have faced serious health issues and challenges, they have been there for me through it all.”
Pastor Marshall Ford
“Great Network, great team, great resources and great relationships. Blessed to be connected with you!”
Pastor Richard Hinojosa
Good Shepherd Community Church
“As a fast-growing church in a rural community, our church lacked the infrastructure needed to keep up with the growth. The Gateway Church Network has come alongside us to share wisdom and resources that have helped us become better and stronger.”
Pastor Kody Hughes
The Heights Church
“So blessed to be connected with the Gateway Church Network! There is no hidden agenda. It is truly the most authentic, generous, and loving group of people I have ever been involved with!”
Pastor Joe Dwyer
“I am so thankful for the Gateway Church Network. My church became part of the Network just prior to the COVID-19 outbreak in our country and the Network’s involvement has been incredibly helpful. They have helped me, and hundreds of other pastors navigate what will be one of the greatest attacks on the church in our lifetime. Couldn’t have done it without them.”
Pastor Eddie Swann
New Beginnings Church
“Gateway Church Network has been a welcome support to our ministry and a place to find spiritual and practical guidance along with true friendship. I’m grateful for the many fellow pastor that I’m now connected to and that I’m not doing ministry alone.”

Pastor Tanner Payton
Word of Life Church
“The Gateway Church Network has been an amazing resource for our church, and a lifeline of support as pastors. We are continually equipped, strengthened, and encouraged by the Network and its team. If it weren’t for them, we would not have survived the first five years of pastoring.”
Pastor Travis Goodman
“Gateway Church Network has been to me and our team what an Airforce aerial tanker is for one of its fighter planes. They have been pro-active in coming along side us in mid-flight to bring desperately needed guidance and refueling. I am personally healthier, and our team is far more productive because of the spiritual and strategic influence of the Network.”
Pastor Randy Harvey
The Crossing Church
“The Gateway Church Network provides a safe and healthy space to establish true relationships with people that have a lot in common. The Network truly accomplishes their purpose of giving all they have without reservation: their knowledge, experience, resources, but above all, love.”
