Church Leadership

Church Leadership Council

Gateway's Leadership Council works closely with the Pastor and all ministry leaders, and is responsible to the members in all matters of the church in pursuing its purpose. Some of the biblical principles that the leadership follow include:

  • To direct the spiritual affairs of the Church (1 Timothy 5:17).
  • Caring for the spiritual need of the members (James 5:14).
  • Consider decision-making in biblical matters (Acts 15:1-6 & 16:4).
  • Commissioning of ministries and leaders (Acts 15:22 & 1 Timothy 4:14).
  • Management of the affairs of the church (Acts 6:3).

The Council approves and maintains supervision on the activities of any church group or external group that is using the church’s name, property, buildings or equipment.

They develop as necessary, in conjunction with the membership, a statement of Vision, Priorities, etc to inspire the church in a direction that is kept current and relevant.
