Gateway recently celebrated 20 years! We heard story after story of life change that all started because 38 willing people said yes to creating a church for the unchurched in Austin. And, at each milestone along the way, more and more people stepped up and paid it forward personally and financially so more and more unchurched people would experience life and freedom in Jesus. Over 55,000 people are moving to Austin every year. We are experiencing a diversification of race, socioeconomic status, spiritual backgrounds, and life circumstances. Our vision is to eventually start campuses all over Central Texas to support our efforts to reach these neighbors, our neighbors, life by life.
As we come to the end of 2018, we are asking you and everyone at Gateway to take the next step toward making this vision happen and financially help us reach a new milestone—help us start two new campuses and 20 new networks across all campuses. The new campuses in Buda/Kyle and Pflugerville will create places in greater Austin for people to explore faith, ask spiritual questions, and begin to connect in community with us. Each new network will mobilize all of our campuses to serve children, students, those in recovery, refugees, different neighborhoods, workplaces, and more. We can make this happen if each person at Gateway would take the 1% challenge, by giving 1% more of your income over the next year. Together, we can do this!
