Executive Pastor, Lead Team
David Thompson is the executive pastor of worship and production and oversees campus ministries, music and worship, live production, and connect ministries. He holds a business degree from Southern Methodist University and is pursuing a master’s degree in practical theology from The King’s University.
David deeply values the five years he spent volunteering in Gateway’s stewardship ministry, which eventually led to joining the staff and overseeing the stewardship department. After helping expand online ministry and creating stewardship ministry videos, David became the pastor of discipleship content and led the team that created Growth Path and other valuable programs we have today. In 2020, David began overseeing Gateway Worship and helped release multiple albums including Atmosphere, Grande y Fiel, and Completely Abandoned. David loves stewarding the teams he oversees and is passionate about serving in altar ministry and connecting with people one-on-one after weekend services.
David and his wife, Ashley, have been married since 2012, and they have an amazing son, Ezra. Ashley also works at Gateway in the Resource Library, sharing valuable content with churches worldwide.
