A Christ-centered life requires actions that reflect the heart of Jesus.  It is important for every Christ-follower to discover their unique giftedness to glorify God.  Use what He has given you in terms of time, talent and treasures for His glory.  Pray for those who have never heard the gospel and consider using your special gifts and abilities in one of Gateway's  outreaches.  God wants to use you to make an eternal difference in the life of someone else.  Giving of your time or money is always a good way to be blessed and to be a blessing.

The underlying purpose of outreach is not just to meet needs in the community, it is “establishing a beachhead for evangelism in a person’s life.”  Dr. Rick Warren, author of the Purpose Driven Church, writes that “anybody can be won to Christ if you discover the key to his or her heart…the most likely place to start is with the person’s felt needs.”  Because the spiritual, material, physical, financial emotional, intellectual and social needs of people in the community are so diverse, several different types of outreach programs are necessary.
