What does a year with
GSM look like?


Start Your Journey

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" - Matthew 28:19

GSM is designed for anyone who is ready to be equipped and follow their calling in ministry. The school works in partnership with Gateway Fellowship Church Network to train leaders who will start churches both here and there.


We don’t seek to be one large church. We are a church network that starts healthy churches all over the world.


Gateway School of Ministry is a 12-month experience that trains and equips students to help lead and start new churches.

Theology & Biblical Knowledge

This area of development would help students develop a systematic understanding of Christian beliefs. Students would take classes in Biblical knowledge, theology, ethics, and apologetics.


Online Curriculum

Our online program offers training opportunities for students from all our partner churches. Monthly GSM rallies help shape good culture and fellowship among our students.  Our Apprentice Program will provide students with hands-on learning experiences at their local church.


While our program allows for flexibility, students are expected to adhere to the due dates in the curriculum. Our online courses are professionally recorded and designed to engage and challenge students as they develop their leadership skills.
