Inspire Leaders Conference

October 18-19, 2019


When you look through a kaleidoscope, you see a pattern of colors and shapes, beautiful and intricate. With one turn, the pattern shifts and changes, and a new image emerges.

Although God never changes, He is like a kaleidoscope: multidimensional and multi-faceted. He is too vast and complex to be limited to one color, culture, generation, or perspective. As we grow in our knowledge of this multidimensional God, we will be better equipped to move forward in our mission to reach people and cities in this multicultural world.

At our 2019 Inspire Leaders Conference, we will take a look through the kaleidoscope together and invite God to show us something new. Come and see the beauty of God’s heart for people in a way you’ve never seen before.


At Our 2019 Inspire Leaders Conference, You Will…

  • Be inspired by the Spirit-filled ministry of our gifted team

  • Be refreshed by powerful worship experiences in God’s presence

  • Be connected to friends and leaders like you from all of our cities

  • Be equipped and empowered in your purpose and place on the team

Who Should Come?

Everyone who loves Gateway and wants to be a part of the vision to reach people! Volunteers, elders, greeters, ministry leaders, teachers, youth/children’s workers, musicians, singers, technicians & intercessors - this experience has been designed for you!

You bring something unique to this vision. You are a vital part of the team! Join us for an unforgettable time!
