Gateway has enabled online giving as a convenience for those who would like to participate in what God is doing in and through Gateway. Your giving helps meet physical and spiritual needs of thousands of people who attend our two Austin campuses as well as our Internet Campus each week. You’re also impacting people and communities in India and the Haiti through our global partnerships. We appreciate your joining us in our mission. Your faithful contributions help bring life and freedom to others.

Here’s what you can contribute toward
The goal of our board of directors is that 100% of what is contributed financially for each campus is used to serve and reach the people around that campus. We recognize that we are one church in multiple locations. We have one board of directors that oversees and stewards the resources of Gateway’s campuses. Ultimately our board has the oversight & discretion in how the funds are used and reserves the right to redirect those funds if necessary. Our books are always open if you have any questions or would like to see them. Gateway uses an independent accounting firm to conduct a financial audit each year.
Gateway Offerings | this fund is where general offerings are given to support the ministries of the church that are led by hundreds of volunteers each week. If you attend our South location and would like to select the option for ‘South Austin,’ this helps to identify the funds for ministries and initiatives in South Austin.
Life Giving Life | Tremendous needs are everywhere. Our goal is to equip and empower thousands of people like you with resources, training, community, and spiritual development to create epicenters of impact around the globe. We’re aiming to have hundreds of networks both in Austin and around the globe over the next 10 years.
Serving Trips | during the year, there are a number of serving trips that take place around the world. If you are supporting a volunteer team that is taking a trip, you can select the trip you are supporting.
