Starting Gate

Learn the answers to these questions, and more…

  • What does it really mean to be a believer?
  • How do I grow as a Christian?
  • What does it mean to be a member of Gateway?

Starting Gate is a place where we communicate our core values, mission, and beliefs with those who would like more information, or are interested in, joining the church. Led by Pastor Steve and the Gateway staff, you will enjoy a great meal in a casual setting with a group of others who, like you, want to know more about Gateway. The Starting Gate class is required for membership, but we invite and welcome anyone who wants to find out more about our church. The class is designed for ages 13 and up, and participants will have the opportunity to join the church at the conclusion of the class. Please make plans to attend our next class.

We provide a meal along with child care.


The next Starting Gate class at Atoka will be September 24.  The next Starting Gate at Munford will be announced soon. It will be immediately after the 10:30 service. A meal and child care will be provided. 

In order to provide a meal for those attending, we ask that you make reservations. Please complete this form:
