Kids & Students


Sunday Mornings 9:15 & 11:15 am

Our kid's church service runs at the same time as the adult services so every member of your family can truly ENJOY the service! Our kid's programs are created FOR kids, so we know they'll be asking you to bring them back soon!


Wednesdays 7:00 - 8:30pm

Gateway's vibrant student community is comprised of middle school and high school students in grades 6 - 12. Gen Z is a generation like no other. We consider it an honor to walk alongside them and guide them as they meet Jesus.

First Time?

Attending for the first time with children? By letting us know you are coming, we can get your children pre-registered in our system, so that when you arrive we can focus on welcoming your child to church instead of completing forms.

Pastor Carlos Ortiz Family Picure Gateway Austin



Carlos Ortiz became the Senior Pastor of Gateway Church on May 7, 2023, after a fruitful succession season with our Founding Pastor, John Burke.  Carlos and Libby moved to Austin just weeks before the pandemic began in March of 2020.

Carlos earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Southwestern University, with a minor in Biblical studies, and then seminary work towards a Masters of Theological Studies in Dallas (SMU). In 2025 Carlos will celebrate 30 years of following Jesus, after becoming a Christ follower in college.

Carlos and Libby share openly about their upbringing and work through addiction, sexual dysfunction and transformative faith from knowing Jesus.  Now married for 24 years, they have a family of 5 kids (Carlos, Bella, Ava, Zoe and Maxwell), and they are proud to be Texans with Midwestern roots.
