Senior Pastors - Jon & Angela Colyer
Jon and Angela have been privileged to travel all over the world sharing the Gospel and the passion in their hearts for the kingdom of God. However, they have always known that Europe, and the United Kingdom in particular, was the place God had burned into their hearts. In November of 2005 at the Lord’s leading; Jon, Angela and their son Levi, moved from their home just outside of Niagara Falls, Canada to the Birmingham area. God had placed a dream in their hearts to plant Gateway Christian Centre – and to play their part in seeing “His kingdom come” to this continent.
