Crisis Relief | Texas Panhandle Wildfire

The Smokehouse Creek fire began on February 26 and has since burned more than a million acres in the Panhandle. Please pray for comfort for all affected by the fire, safety for the first responders, and for the fire to be contained.

As a church, it’s important we have an organized response to this crisis so we can be of assistance and not a hindrance. We ask that you not travel to the affected area unless you have communicated with an organization already involved in relief efforts and they are aware of your arrival. Here’s how you can help right now.


  • Pray for God’s comfort to surround the families affected by the wildfires.
  • Pray for the first responders to have strength as they continue serving their communities.
  • Pray for healing, peace, provision, and restoration for every community impacted.


Your donations will be given to our ministry partners helping those affected. Give to our crisis relief fund.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. –Proverbs 18:10

Please note Gateway is not collecting tangible donations (clothes, canned food, etc.) at this time.
