We are an apostolic (sending) community of believers of Jesus Christ that hosts equipping courses, conferences and worship gatherings to encourage, train and empower followers of Jesus Christ to be Gates that release more of His love and goodness to their world.
The Gate is here to serve other pastors, churches and followers of Christ to step into the call of Jesus to bring more of the realty of heaven on earth.
The Gate is an apostolic environment where the abilities given by the Father, the 5 fold gifts given by Jesus Christ and the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit will be honored, developed and taught so that the community of believers in Charleston will all grow in the full graces of God and empowered to be the body of Jesus Christ in their world and culture.
Our vision is to see an apostolic team of pastors and leaders come together to serve our beloved city by “equipping followers of Christ to bring Kingdom reformation to the Holy City!”
The seed of the Gate began in the spring of 2015 when Ron and Libby Hamilton and a team started a pilot class of The Gate School of Ministry (called The Jesus School of Ministry) where believers were taught to discover their true identity as royal sons and daughters of God and to step out more and more as gates into the ministry of Jesus.
Then in the summer of 2017 Ron stepped out of his role at Seacoast Church after almost 30 years to step into ministry of The Gate to focus his calling and vision to serve the body of Christ to be encouraged, trained and empowered to bring more and more of God’s Kingdom of Heaven on earth as Jesus did.
The Gate has a clear vision of pastors and leaders through out Charleston joining in to bring their gifts and callings to see the body of Jesus Christ trained, equipped and deployed in our beloved city to bring lasting Kingdom transformation in every sphere of influence. One of the key verses that helped shape the call and vision of the Gate was Micah 2:13 that describes the people of God passing through the Gate with Jesus, the “breaker out” King going out before them.
