Gateway's Making a Worldwide Impact
May 31–June 1, 2008, was a groundbreaking weekend for Gateway Church. With much anticipation, we launched something that would dramatically change the reach of Gateway’s ministry. For the first time ever, anyone could visit the Gateway website and watch weekend services live! With the click of a mouse, people around the world invited Gateway into their homes, cars, hotels, planes, hospital rooms, families, and small groups. Online streaming has allowed those who travel, are ill, or live outside of the Metroplex to share in the powerful worship and dynamic messages we experience on a weekly basis.
We didn’t leap into this technological advancement because we like the way we look on camera but because we adamantly believe in technology as a tool for advancing God’s kingdom. Pastor Robert has often referred to our cameras as missionaries, transporting God’s Word to places we can’t always be. With this thought in mind, the cameras suddenly become more than machines, they become ambassadors. People across the world gather in homes to watch the services, and entire churches are now incorporating Gateway’s live service streaming into their church’s annual sermon schedule!
Some may consider it an unconventional avenue, but our online streaming is just another extension of Gateway’s heart to give to anyone who desires to seek the Lord and learn. And it’s made an incredible impact in thousands of lives across the world.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE AMAZING TESTIMONIES WE’VE RECEIVED FROM OUR ONLINE GATEWAY FAMILY ACROSS THE GLOBE.
“Greetings from South Africa! I would like to thank you for the wonderful messages you bring. They are so easy to understand and have a little bit of fun included! You have opened up a whole new understanding of the Bible for both my husband and me. We look forward to many more inspiring messages in 2016!”

“Our life group in St. Louis, Missouri, studies all of Gateway’s teachings!”
“We listened to a Gateway sermon series in our Bible study in Eufaula, Oklahoma, a few months ago, and it opened many hearts and eyes just as God’s Word always does!”
“We live in Missouri, and when we can’t make it to church, Gateway is our church!”
“We love to watch the services and listen to you preach, Pastor Robert. Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year, all the way from Brazil.”
“I’m 80 years old and thanking God daily. I have finished studying several of your online teachings, and I am now studying the Jesus series. Your anointing from God is evident in all your lessons. I accepted Christ as my Savior at 11 years old. He has never left me, and I have never left Him. God bless you, your family, and your wonderful ministry.”
