Who can be a part of Gateway Business Leaders?

Gateway Business Leaders desires to serve the business leaders of Gateway Church by empowering them to have strong relationships with God and their families while running successful businesses. Our vision is to build God’s kingdom by accelerating the business leaders’ success and influence. Our mission is to train, equip, and disciple Christian business owners and corporate leaders to effectively apply Biblical principles and best practices to fulfill God’s unique calling in their lives and in the marketplace.

It is estimated that during the work week in the United States, over 55% of our waking hours are spent in a workplace environment. For many, work has little connection with their faith, but at Gateway, we believe faith is relevant to everyday life, including your business and business leadership. By offering relevant curricula, leveraging innovative technology, and cultivating authentic relationships in a safe and protected environment, we help business leaders ground their work and leadership in God’s original design and purpose for business.

Candidates for the Gateway Business Leaders program fall into two main categories with different opportunities for each:

  1. Business Owners: A business owner is defined as someone who owns a majority interest in the business they lead.
  2. Corporate Leaders: Corporate Leaders are defined as Presidents, C-Level Executives of private and public corporations that have more than 100 employees, and Vice Presidents that oversee at least 50 employees.

Our program is not intended at this time for non-profit leaders, first-time start-up entrepreneurs, direct sales agents, network marketers, manufacturing sales representatives, and realtors working for franchise real estate organizations. If you are an eligible candidate, we invite you to apply.

Do I have to be a Gateway Church member to join Gateway Business Leaders?

No. The program is open to all Christian business leaders in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. 

Once I am part of Gateway Business Leaders, may I invite guests to Gateway Business Leaders events?

Members may invite guests to our events who meet the criteria of being a business owner, president, vice president, chief executive officer, or other C-level executive.

If I am a candidate, what is the process for engaging with Gateway Business Leaders?

Each candidate goes through an initial application process to determine their eligibility. Please apply on our Gateway Business Leaders website.

I am starting a new business. May I participate?

If you are starting your first business, you likely will benefit from other resources that focus on starting and launching a new business venture. We hope to develop a curriculum in the future for entrepreneurs and start-ups.
