EnTheos Student Ministries


Our mission is to change the lives of students and their families with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. EnTheos comes from two Greek words meaning “God within”. It is the root of the English word enthusiasm. At Gateway Fellowship, we want students to encounter God in such a way they can honestly say Christ abides in their heart and is changing their life. Through sermons, Bible Studies, events, and discipleship groups, we seek to create a culture of discipleship that leads to worship and compels us to be on mission. We want graduates to come out of high school with a high expectation of biblical exposition and tremendous confidence in handling the Word of Truth.

Disciple Now 2018 Registration is Open!

Disciple Now is one of the most dynamic outreach events of the year for Gateway Fellowship’s Student Ministries. 7-12 grade students come together for a weekend of food, games, music, preaching, and repeat. It is meant to point teenagers in our community to God through team building activities, music, and the Bible. Students from different high schools come together to compete in a series of competitions throughout the weekend. They will spend two nights at “host homes” belonging to church members and chaperoned by the event staff. Click the button below to register your student. 
You will also need to sign the event waiver when you check your student in at the event. If you will not be dropping your student off in person, you can sign it ahead of time and send it with your student by downloading it here. DNow Waiver
