Welcome to Student Ministries

At Gateway, helping Middle School, High School, and College students take their NEXT STEP in following Jesus is a high priority. It is our desire to meet every student where they are and give them the answer and hope of Jesus. Our environments for students are designed to help students KNOW Jesus in a deeper way, GROW closer to His family, and SHOW the love of Jesus to their every day world. Please check out the following information and gain a better understanding of how we care for students.

CCL

Gateway's ministry to people ages 18-25 who are in College, just starting a Career, or maybe just in Limbo. At Gateway, our prayer is to see "20 Somethings" passionately serving God, deeply in love with and committed to God's people, and connecting across the generations. The best way to engage this group of people is to join one of our Grow Groups for CCL aged people.


What Now Grow Group, 

weekly (Local Camas Home): 

This group meets most weeks on Thursday evenings to eat together, study the Bible, pray together, and support one another in following Jesus. To join this group or find out more information, contact Pastor Mathias or Kyle Brumfield


Other 20 Something Grow Groups

There are a few other Grow Group options for 20 somethings, but they are best explored through a conversation with Pastor Mathias. He would love to understand where you are at, what you're needing from a Grow Group, and point you to the best fit for you. Contact Pastor Mathias.
