The great work we started last year with the refugee community continues as we serve those families who have relocated to the Austin area. This year our goal is to raise $100,000 above regular giving to resource key initiatives through the Life by Life project to serve our global partners.
Some of these projects include providing 40,000 meals for children in Haiti with limited access to food, training pastors to plant churches in India, sharing the good news of Jesus' love to unreached people in Europe and the Middle East, and serving refugees with medical care.
Your Generosity in 2022 will provide:

Year-End Campus Updates
From Our Executive Pastor
It’s an exciting time to be part of Gateway Church! As we come to the last few weeks of 2022, I want to give you a preview of what is coming and ask you to be praying together with us. First, we want to celebrate the impact we’ve had together over the last year serving the refugee community. Many of you participated with the Love Refugee project that launched last December and the impact on people’s lives has been amazing. Our goal was to serve 100 refugee families and together we’ve far exceeded that goal because of your generosity! Here are a few highlights:
● 175 Refugee families served
● 725 Refugees and Asylees served
● 135 Refugees attended 2 job fairs
● 144 Backpacks provided to children for school
● 90 Volunteers mobilized
● 25 Gateway families partnering with 25 refugee families
The great work we started last year with the refugee community continues as we serve those families who have relocated to the Austin area. This year our goal is to resource key initiatives through the Life by Life project to serve our global partners.

Would you pray for what God is asking you to give above and beyond your regular giving to fully resource these initiatives? If we all participate, we fully resource $100,000 of these projects and transform thousands of lives.
During December, you’ll hear more about the life by life impact of your generosity in our city and world. On behalf of the refugee community, the people at each of our Gateway locations, and our global partners, thank you!
