Ministry Partners

Thank you for your interest in our Ministry Partners. As part of our vision to see theGATE serve as a true Ministry Center, we have vital relationships with and support a number of ministries within our congregation. Working together can have a multiplying effect toward seeing the church fulfill the Great Commission. Please take some time to learn more about these groups and support them as you feel led.

Through Greg Strange Ministries, armed with a full arsenal of music and CDs, Greg Strange (born Greg Sostrom) tours relentlessly, visiting churches, Christian schools and campgrounds in virtually every state as he continues to do outreach throughout the United States. With funny songs and a sincere heart, Greg’s quirky style and off-the-wall humor catches the attention of many, and birthed Greg the stage name, “Mr. Strange”.

Their mission is to alleviate suffering caused by disasters and chronic human need through stimulating the global Christian community into compassionate action.

Messenger Fellowship exists to gather an international fellowship of leaders, churches and ministries who, in safe relationships of honor and humility, seek to model and communicate the principles and patterns of a God-glorifying Church. Messenger convenes leaders for the purpose of worship, hearing from God, equipping and the building of friendships by offering yearly conferences of leadership summits. It covers leaders through relationships and resources, and it points leaders towards strategic ministry partnering, or co-missioning, locally and globally for Kingdom purposes.

Founded in 2005 by Greg and Shelvi Gilmore, Welcome Home International Foundation was created to help administrate a home for Sri Lankan children who had survived the horrific 2004 tsunami. WHIF was given as broad a scope as possible so it could additionally be used as a vehicle for other projects, not only in Sri Lanka, but wherever the Lord would lead the Gilmores. With a mission to care for the victims of natural or man-made disasters and other unfortunate circumstances throughout the world, especially for orphans, street children, widows, refugees, the homeless, prisoners, the poor, the hungry, the sick and the disabled, WHIF is also a member of the National Heritage Foundation, one of the oldest, most experienced, and most respected independent nonprofit organizations in the United States.
