Local/Global Missions

One of the four Rhythms of Gateway is to "Scatter for Mission." We believe that while the Sunday Gathering serves as an opportunity for the church to come together in community, worship and teaching, the scattering for mission is equally as important. As a body, we financially and prayerfully support a variety of missionaries.

Take a look below, and select any photo to find out more about that mission.

If you are interested in finding more information on any of these missionaries, visit the welcome table on Sunday mornings, or contact Pastor David.

The POPPINo family

In addition to serving as an Elder at Gateway, Gene Poppino and his wife Anne are full time missionaries through Cadence International. Cadence is a ministry focused on bringing Jesus into the military community. The Poppinos direct the Pastoral Care Team and come alongside missionaries in the places that they serve. 

Immersion life

Gateway belongs to a local network of churches called Immersion Life. In addition to Gateway, the network includes New Community Church in Maple Valley, Turning Point Church in Kent, and "other church" in Tacoma. 


We are excited to partner in planting a brand new local church in 2017! The Stone Church community will be gathering with us on Sunday mornings beginning in January, and will branch off into downtown Auburn later in the year. We are beyond excited for Stone to join in on our ministry, and we can't wait to watch the Lord work as they begin their own Sunday morning gatherings later in the year. 

THe Harmaning family

In addition to serving on the teaching team and as an Elder at Gateway, Jarrod Harmaning and his wife Katcha and their children are in the final stages of preparing to join the mission field full time. We love that we are able to send out this incredible family with the knowledge that the Lord will use them to bless others abundantly through their mission of Building God's Kingdom in the Czech Republic through Christian Education and Local Church
