GateWay Worship Center started in August, 1993 in Pastor Kevin and Jackie’s living room with 8 people. GateWay’s first service was in a rented Church of God building with 45 in attendance. Outgrowing that facility in 2000, GateWay moved across town renting for two more years before locating at 661 E. Exchange St. in Akron, Ohio, one quarter mile east of Akron University.

Ordained under Lester Sumrall, Pastor Kevin served under that covering for 3 years until Dr. Sumrall’s passing. At that time Pastors Kevin and Jackie were ordained under Christian International with Bishop Bill Hamon. GateWay Worship Center was then brought under C.I.’s Network of Churches which is their current affiliation.

GateWay Worship Center is a local church body emphasizing worship and intercession as a large part of our mission in the Body of Christ. We have several departments of service and activities for membership involvement.
