Gateway Church Scholarship

Through accredited higher education and hands-on ministry experience, The King’s University is equipping theologically-balanced, Spirit-empowered leaders who are ready to further the kingdom of God. Over 20 years ago, the Lord told Pastor Jack Hayford to start a seminary and we have been blessed to experience the fruit of his obedience ever since. TKU has the privilege of partnering with Gateway Church in a variety of ways that add to the transformational learning experience available to our students, including their generous scholarship open to any student.

With undergraduate and graduate degrees available both on-ground at our main campus in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex or online, TKU can help you fulfill the calling God has placed on your life, no matter where you live.

Being an online student at TKU, I wasn’t planning to go to graduation. I had a million reasons not to go. I didn’t know if anyone would come see me walk across the stage, and I felt like it wasn’t necessary. After all, I was taking my classes online from Hays, Kansas,...
