My path to ministry at Gateway Church: I started attending Gateway Church in 1967 while I was teaching at Vennard College and pastoring part-time at Rose Hill Community Church. I retired from part-time pastoring in 1989 and from teaching in 1994. At this time I was able to be more involved in the life and ministry of the church. Under Rev. Gary Smith’s ministry  I was asked to serve part-time as Visitation Pastor in which I still serve. I am thankful to the Lord and Gateway Church.

What I like best about working at Gateway Church is: I appreciate the sense of being in God’s will and blessing Him in my life and service at Gateway Church. Life truly is much about “loving God and loving each other.”
