What If One Weekend Could Change The Trajectory Of Your Life? What If You Could Live A Life In Faith Instead Of Fear? Imagine Where God Could Take You And What He Could Do Through You If You Lived Fearless

The Gateway Young Adults Weekend is a three-day getaway to encounter God's presence, hear from dynamic communicators, and connect with other young adults. Our heart is for you to step outside the day-to-day busyness of life, and come face-to-face with Jesus—His power and love—the only One who can set you free from all your fears. This weekend is an opportunity for you to step into the purposes of God and live for something greater than yourself—start living fearless

They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly. Psalm 112:8 (NLT)

Tim speaks both nationally and internationally strengthening believers with the Good News of Jesus Christ. He began preaching at 20 years old and has already impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

Todd White

Todd White was a drug addict and atheist for 22 years when in 2004 he was radically set free. God opened Todd’s eyes to the truth that redemption and righteousness are the foundational keys that we should live in and live from and that the Holy Spirit wants to flow through every believer everywhere we go. Todd’s heart is activating people into the simplicity of who they really are and destroying lies that hold people back from being who God created them to be.
