Testimonials

Teaching at the Gateway Woods School was a true blessing; it stretched me considerably as it deepened my faith and also forced me to confront the reality that there are so many hurting families in our world. I loved challenging students to think critically both about their world view as well as their math lessons and will miss interacting on a daily basis with the Gateway Woods family.

Brian (Former Math Teacher)

Gateway Woods is a great place to come and launch your career in the social work or mental health field. I am so thankful for the 7.5 years I worked onsite, and I am also thankful for the opportunity to continue to serve Gateway Woods on a long-distance basis. 

Kirby (Former Counselor)

Gateway is woven deeply into my DNA, and I am thankful to have been called here. I have served alongside incredible people, oriented by a Mission that is worth it.
