Gateway Baptist Ministries Africa

Where God is true, Jesus is Lord, Holy Ghost is our comforter, and The Word is our guide.

Ministry Vision and Goals for East Africa

We desire first and foremost to glorify our heavenly Father in all we do and say. This is a ministry of faith.  We do not have big plans, but simply to be yielded to the Holy Ghost and walk through the doors He opens for us to get the Gospel of Jesus to this lost and soon perished world. 


When God first put us on the field we thought we would be in South Sudan, Africa until he told us to possibly to go back to the United States. Our idea was to plant a Church and work toward turning it over to a national pastor that God has lead to be the pastor of the church and to also have a bible college to train a few men in the church. We never dreamed of living in Uganda or working in any other African nations. Through the leading of the Holy Ghost, confirmed with by his Word, and the situations around us we were relocated to northern Uganda. This is where God began to cultivate a desire to reach feather.  Act 8:1  And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. 2Cor_10:16  To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand.


On the field we have seen that there are many men willing to do a work for The Lord; however, they are unequipped, and have errors in interpreting scripture. We also learned that no missionary in Africa is able to do a work without a national. We also realized that many works never become indigenous, due to becoming missionary dependent, and the Missionary ends up pastoring the church plants. 


In South Sudan, God began to bless the Bible college and spread it to a second location in the second semester.  Then we had a Pastor in Uganda that wanted us to help him train his men. Then we were contacted by a Pastor in Kenya that wanted us to help him educate men in the Bible in that area. 


Our vision is to equip Men of God to plant fundamental independent Baptist Churches and assist them in evangelizing the area of the Church plant as well as helping establish the church as a solid work for The Lord.


Our goal is to train as many men to reach as far as The Lord will allow. Our hope is to have men in the ministry that are committed to holy living, heavenly listening, and a heart longing for God.


Act 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
