The Gateway Journey

Gateway began in April 1990 when Pastor Dwayne Pederson and his family moved to Edmonton to plant a new church as part of The Christian & Missionary Alliance family of churches. The church initially met in St. Timothy’s school, moving – as it grew – to Mary Butterworth School, until finally purchasing 12 acres of land and building our current facility and holding our first service here in May 2004.

In April 2008, Dwayne & Brenda Pederson were called to serve in another church, and so Gateway began to search for a new Lead Pastor. In February 2009, Martin & Christine Trench answered that call and moved from Scotland, UK, to Edmonton to begin the next stage in Gateway’s on-going journey.

Gateway is an exciting church to be a part of. We are a growing church, where people regularly come to faith in Christ, are baptised, and become active members. We are a contemporary church, which is seeking to worship and apply the teachings of scripture in a relevant, 21st century context. We are an inclusive church that welcomes people “just as they are”, knowing that God works in all of our lives in different ways. Above all, we seek to be a Biblical church and a Spirit-led church – seeking God in scripture and in prayer to discover His plan for us as a community.

We invite you to become part of the adventure as we journey onto the next phase in Gateway’s story.
