Gateway Church

The King’s University has partnered with Gateway Church in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Gateway is a multi-campus, evangelistic, Spirit-empowered church led by Robert Morris, founding senior pastor. Since its beginning on Easter Sunday in 2000, Gateway has grown consistently and now includes six campuses across Dallas/Fort Worth and one church plant in Scottsdale, Arizona. With more than 36,000 active members, Gateway provides a rich environment for students of TKU’s main campus to receive hands-on ministry training in numerous areas including pastoral ministry, worship and creative arts, children’s ministry, youth ministry, equipping and discipleship, freedom ministry, adult ministry, and global ministry.

Dr. Jack Hayford, Founder and Chancellor of The King’s University, and Pastor Robert Morris, Founding Senior Pastor of Gateway Church, have cultivated a unique partnership, in that Dr. Hayford serves as an apostolic elder of Gateway Church, and Pastor Robert currently serves as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for The King’s University. Both Dr. Hayford and Pastor Robert share a vision to train men and women for the work God has called them to accomplish. This shared vision led to the creation of a TKU campus at Gateway and, ultimately, the transition of the main campus from Van Nuys, California, to Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas in January 2014.
