Hi, I’m Isaac, the Youth Pastor here at Gateway. We have two great nights each week specifically for Middle School and High School students. Each night we offer a welcoming environment where students will make friends, play games, hear a relevant message from God's word and break up into gender/grade specific small groups where more discussion and relational connection can take place.

On top of our weekly programs, we offer outreach events, camps, worship nights, service projects, and more. We have a great team of adult leaders whose desire is to build relationships with our students to lead them closer to Jesus. If there's anything we can ever do for you, please don't hesitate to reach out!
