Church Leadership

The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus is the Head of the Church (Eph. 1:22–23, 4:15, 5:23). He is the One that we seek and follow as He continues to advance the movement that He started 2,000 years ago through His perfect life, substitutionary death and victorious resurrection. After He ascended into heaven, He gave us His Spirit and established His Church to be led by those who are qualified. Underneath the guidance of Jesus are leaders who follow Jesus and encourage others to follow him as well. At Gateway Chapel, our formal leadership structure involves pastors, elders, staff members and dedicated volunteers.
