Has A Name
As I look back on 2013 at Gateway, I'm amazed at the ways God has moved. We closed out the year by pursuing and experiencing freedom through the series Free Indeed, and I am so proud of you for not only accepting the Lord's power and purpose in your life, but also for allowing His transforming love into the core of who you are.

Our annual report reminds me of when the Israelites entered the Promised Land. As they went, God had Joshua lead the people from one side of the Jordan River to the other. When the Levites and Joshua stepped into the river, the water stopped, and the Israelites crossed the riverbed onto dry ground. They paused in the midst of the miracle and set stones in their camp to mark the faithfulness of God as Joshua said, "These stones shall be a memorial to the children of Israel forever" (Joshua 4:7).

This annual report is our stone monument to all God did in 2013. Last year, God did so many incredible things in and through the people of Gateway.

  • 4,775 professions of faith in Christ.
  • Average weekly attendance was 23,831, an increase of 21%.
  • Over $13,000,000 dollars given to 173 ministries in 47 countries.
  • A weekly average of 6,036 viewed weekend services via live streaming.
  • 3,541 people attended Catch the Vision.
  • 39,000 registrations for Equip classes.
  • Weekly attendance at the North Fort Worth Campus increased by over 250%.
  • And that's only the beginning!

Please understand, we don't list these things to pat ourselves on the back. Every number has a name and every name has a story. We count out our blessings for the same reason the Israelites set stones in their camp: to remember what God did and increase our faith for what He will do in the future. We never want to forget the vision of Gateway is being met as people are getting saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped, empowered and serving. It gives us the faith to move forward!

2013 was an amazing year! As we pursue God's vision and build His kingdom in 2014, let's look back and be encouraged as we praise Him for all that He has done and all He is beginning.

The Home Makeover outreach allows Gateway Church members to come together and bless a family in the community that’s in a hopeless situation by completely renovating their house. Not only does the work change the family's home life, it affects the whole neighborhood. We send out small teams into the neighborhood to do ''mini-makeovers'' like painting houses, planting gardens or building fences.

2013 Heart for the Kingdom Accomplishments

North Fort Worth Campus

In July, the North Fort Worth Campus transitioned from the Auditorium at Fossil Ridge High School to the newly renovated building at Beach and Basswood.

The Kings University

On November 14, The King’s University Board of Directors and Gateway Elders cut the ribbon and officially dedicated the school’s new headquarters in Southlake, Texas. This moment was more than a building dedication; rather, it was a passing of the mantle. The King’s University Founder, Dr. Jack Hayford, addressed the crowd of more than 400 as he handed the legacy of his school over to Pastor Robert and Gateway Church. This is the fulfillment of a vision God placed in Pastor Robert’s heart several years ago: to train the next generation for life-transforming ministry. During the 2013 academic year, the student population grew to almost 200 students.

myGateway

Last fall, a beta version of the app was released to a small number of people. The refining process continues as the app is scheduled to be released to the public this year.

Grand Prairie Campus

As 2013 began, so did a new chapter in Shady Grove Church’s history as it came into the Gateway family and began the transition to becoming the Gateway Grand Prairie Campus. In 2014, the process continues! Read below to see the future plans for the Grand Prairie Campus.

Additional Parking (Southlake and Frisco Campuses)

Parking was added to the Frisco Campus in 2013. Targeted areas for further improvements to these campuses have been chosen and additional parking is planned for the Southlake Campus.

2014 Heart for the Kingdom Initiatives

Grand Prairie: Master Plan Development and Improvements

When the Grand Prairie Campus first came into the Gateway family, it was a gift from the Lord—an unexpected adoption. This year, we’ll begin with creating a master plan to begin the process of making the campus look and feel like Gateway. For example, we are looking to transform our Amazing Kids area, possibly add a third service and additional parking. There are many more changes on the way, but they won’t be happening all at once. Instead of just tackling the master plan from day one, the changes will be paced out based on campus growth.

Southlake Campus Parking

Attendance is at a new high! With turnover traffic, parking can quickly affect your mentality before you step into worship. Pastor David Smith says, “We have to think about the experience every person has—not just the guests, but even the members—from the time they drive into our environment. How they feel, how they’re treated and how they’re accommodated.” Expanding the parking lot at Southlake is the first opportunity to help give someone a unique worship experience.

Frisco Campus Improvements

The Frisco Campus was another adoption into the Gateway family, and it’s time to maximize this opportunity on the existing footprint. In order to continue the integration, we’re considering expanding the building to accommodate a larger community area, Gateway Café, bookstore, Guest Central and V! Lounge.

Future Sites for New Extension Campuses

Amazingly, many of the extension campuses are on the verge of overflow! The process has already begun to find new areas of expansion in the Metroplex in order to accommodate the work the Lord is doing through Gateway. By the end of 2014, locations will be identified and buildings purchased—with cash.

NRH Campus Updates and Improvements

The NRH Campus, originally designed to be a youth facility, has exceeded expectations and is consistently growing! More space is needed to facilitate the ministries and classes held there on a weekly basis. The creation of new areas for classrooms, a dedicated Guest Central and a V! Lounge are being considered for this year.

Debt Retirement

In 2013, Gateway launched three new campuses—adopting Grand Prairie, finishing out the North Fort Worth Campus and remodeling The King’s University Campus. The 2013 Heart for the Kingdom campaign created a fantastic head start, but in order to complete these projects at the scale required, a small amount of debt had to be incurred. This year, Gateway will begin paying some of that down. “One of the focuses of optimization is to help us pay our debt. We feel this is an important step to take this year,” says Pastor David.

The gifts and offerings given toward Heart for the Kingdom can also be used for other areas of expansion as directed by the Elders.
