Jesus, the Gate, and Young Adults Entering into Revival

“I continue to dream and pray about a revival of holiness in our day that moves forth in mission and creates authentic community in which each person can be unleashed through the empowerment of the Spirit to fulfill God’s creational intentions.”
― John Wesley, from How to Pray: The Best of John Wesley on Prayer

The Gate (official logo) (3)John Wesley, William Carey, Hudson Taylor, Grace Wilder and Lottie Moon: five young men and women, in their mid-twenties, whom God used to start the fires of revival within their respective generation. The legacies of these missionary heroes, of one hundred years ago, burn within the hearts of a new generation seeking revival in our own age.

Fort Wayne, known as “the city of churches” currently has several university campuses, dozens of hipster coffee shops, and numerous Christian churches, that are filled with young adults, young professionals, and young families who are not asking the question of whether or not faith is real. Instead, the spiritual question of the day is “does faith work?”

Those whom sociologist call “millennials”, or those born between the years of 1982-2002 roughly speaking, represent the largest generation ever to live in American history. Some statisticians say we number close to 80 million! But this is a generation that is incredibly optimistic, seeks an adventure in life, and has a growing interest in the supernatural.

If you resonate with the kind of faith I’m describing here; a faith that works, takes risks, expects to see miracles, and is radical enough to desire complete obedience in order to see our city transformed by the power of the Gospel, then I’d encourage you to come check out the Gate.

The Gate is Fort Wayne’s new young adult ministry gathering. At the Gate we will seek God’s face in an extended time of worship, reflect on his Word with a practical and relevant teaching, and activate the gifts of the Holy Spirit in a time of prayer ministry. The name “the Gate” is a prophetic reference to John 10:9, and signifies an entry point to a “full life” in Jesus. We exist to equip college students, and twenty-something’s in the following four ways:

* Encounter God in prayer and worship

* Experience Authentic Community

* Engage Your World on Mission

* Enter a Full Life in Jesus

We are launching our new ministry this Sunday evening, February 15th, from 6 -8:00pm and will meet at Pathway Community Church, located at 11910 Shearwater Run Fort Wayne, IN 46845.
