Testimonials

Being called to join in the mission at Gateway Woods has provided such an opportunity to meet kids right where they are in their journey of life and extend to them the Truth of God’s love. Through the ups and the downs and everything in between, it brings me pure joy to have the opportunity to love kids well and point them to Jesus.

Kiley (LARC Coordinator)

What sets Gateway School apart from other teaching positions is that you are working with a team of teachers who have sacrificed something of themselves to be at Gateway. We are united around a common mission to provide hope and healing to the students who walk through our doors.

Timothy (Science Teacher)

When the Lord calls you to a place like Gateway Woods, you can never really know the extent of what He will ask of you. Following Jesus is rarely as clear-cut as we would like, but it is always worth it! Just like Abraham, the where and the what may be uncertain, but the One we follow is sure, and the blessing is certain when we get there.
