Gateways Christian Fellowship is an eldership-governed church, operating a collaborative team leadership based on Ephesians 4:12,13.
Our senior leader, David Tweed together with his wife Paula, have served at Gateways for many years in a number of different roles.
David carries the vision and direction for the fellowship. He regularly meets with Team Leaders who serve as heads of the different functions/departments of church life, most of whom are volunteers.
David has a passion for equipping and releasing leaders to fulfil the call of God on their lives
There are also a number of credentialed ministers serving in various other capacities as volunteers or partly paid staff.
Gateways is an eldership governed church.
Our elders meet regularly to pray, study the word together, plan and direct with wisdom as the Lord leads and enables us. We believe in releasing the gift of leadership by appointing a recognised, senior leader to chair the eldership and champion the vision/strategic objectives. We, also, seek to support and enable the leaders of the various ministries operating within the church.
