The Gateway School of Acts exists to equip young people to carry out the great commission with the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. We seek to build up world changers who will take the presence and love of Jesus with them everywhere they go.
Everyone will be placed into a discipleship group with a staff leader and approximately 3-5 fellow students to share your heart, encourage, and challenge each other on a weekly basis. These groups are created for the purpose of accountability, discipleship and community. During this weekly time, students connect relationally and discuss the current Bible reading.
Gateway School of Acts emphasizes hands-on training and experience along with an academic learning environment. This creates a culture where all of the students are expected to take risks to stretch their faith and grow in their understanding of God. As a part of ministry training, we have developed a curriculum of courses that are designed to help you grow in your walk with the Lord and to train you in the gifts that God has given you. A complete list of courses and descriptions can be found here.
Our classes take place in an online classroom with a once a week group discussion on campus. The other hours consist of learning through homework, reading, attending services, serving in specific focus areas, and soaking and prayer times of personal devotion. Gateway School of Acts is not for the faint of heart. It is an extremely fast-paced season of growth and learning, but the training is crucial and strategic.
We are excited to have you join us on a lifelong journey to see the King glorified in every single part of culture and society and to experience a life where the things that were impossible now become normal.
HANDS ON MINISTRY TRAINING
We believe that the best way to learn to do ministry is to learn from experience. During your time here you will be guided as you learn to do ministry in everyday life. This will come from serving within various ministry opportunities at Gateway Family Church.
Focus areas are the areas of work that interest you. We want to help train you in the things that you are interested in whether that be business, marketing, media production, graphic design, music, etc. We are committed to helping you reach your God-given potential.
