At Gateway, Leadership starts with Jesus.
It’s His church, and He’s our senior pastor. Underneath the guidance of Jesus are leaders who are simply qualified Christians who follow Jesus and encourage others to follow Him as well. At Gateway Church, our formal leadership structure involves pastors, council, and church members.
Jesus calls qualified people to lead His church as elders, whom we also call pastors. Qualifications for eldership are found in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, and include leading their families well, a record of serving Jesus well both in the church and in everyday life, a thorough knowledge of the Bible and a mature Christian walk, and a good reputation both in and out of the church. The primary duties of elders include praying and studying Scripture, leading the vision of the church, caring for the people of the church, teaching, living lives that are exemplary, protecting the people of the church from false doctrine and teachers, and developing other leaders.
