Our Leadership

Gateway is governed by two key groups – the Board, and the Elders.
The Gateway Board serves as the overseers of the church that provide financial oversight, address concerns and needs, and deal with polity issues. They provide the necessary oversight to ensure we are healthy, good stewards of our finances, and pursuing the mission God has given us. Board members are appointed for election at the AGM.

Current Board Members: Darien Chaffart, Enrico Magallon, Julie Keates, Junior Kayoka, Lonnie Hunter, Tara Noel
The Elders are a team of former pastors, lay pastors, and spiritually mature individuals that act as advisors on the needs and health of the church. They offer guidance and spiritual oversight for the church, while focusing on the overall spiritual health, vision,  and well-being of our church. Each member of our Elders Team was chosen for their pastoral leadership, exemplary lifestyle, and willingness to serve.

Current Elders Team: Adela Tehusalawany, Alice Tieszen, Darien Chaffart, Dee De-Long, Jan Kopecky, Ken Tieszen, Melody Stewart, Michal Jenkinson, Peter Stewart, Rhonalee Corazza
