"a place to be known, to be encouraged, and to encounter Christ's love."

      I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.                              John 10:9        



The Gate is a network of people committed to creating a place for young people in this community. A safe place to be known as individuals, to be encouraged to grow and learn, and to encounter Christ's love. The Gate Youth Association is a 501(c)(3), non-profit corporation whose mission is to demonstrate Christ's love to the youth of our community through academic, social, and spiritual activities. Our hope is to bring youth into a relationship with Christians who can share their faith. Our vision is a community where future generations experience, follow, and serve Christ.

Over 35 community leaders gathered at The Gate Community Youth Forum to learn about and discuss marijuana use among youth. A special thank you to Beth and Matthew from Polk County for leading the discussion.
