A hero among pastors is Bill Hybel's, founding pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, IL. Hybel's has famously said, "The Church is the hope of the world and it's future rests in the hands of it's leaders." You, my friend, are a leader of Gateway Franklin and I believe our church is in good hands! 

Earlier this year God directed me to focus on Leadership as one of the 3 Next Steps for the growth and development of Gateway. As such, I would like to invite you to our first Gateway Leadership Summit, 5:00 PM Sunday evening November 5th. 

We want to celebrate your service, highlight the significance and connected nature of every area of service to our mission of reaching and developing new people for Christ, and cast vision for future impact of you, our new "Lead Team"!

Dinner will be provided and there will be a movie and pizza for your children. This will be a significant meeting in the life of our church. Please make every effort to attend. There isn't anything we can't do together when we Lead Together following the direction of God.
