Stokes Collins

Plano Campus Pastor

Stokes Collins is the campus pastor for the Gateway Plano Campus. There he oversees daily operations for the campus and partners with Gateway leadership to ensure Gateway is truly one church with multiple locations.

Stokes spent most of his early career in customer service and sales and has owned two businesses. He’s been on staff with Gateway since 2010 where he served at the Southlake Campus and NRH Campus as well as on the central team before transitioning to his current role as the Plano Campus pastor. 

When he was 24 years old, Stokes was smitten with a girl named Beth. They went out on a few dates and she kept asking him to attend church with her. He finally gave in and went to the church, but it was an uncomfortable experience. He decided to attend church with her again, and this time he gave his life to Christ. Soon after he was baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit at the same church. Best of all, he and Beth have been happily married since 2000 and have two daughters. Jesus and Beth are the reasons his life has been forever changed.
