Gateway Church in Dallas, Texas launched a new campus in Coffield Prison. The lead pastor of the church, Robert Morris, showed a video to his congregation of over 500 inmates who have decided to follow Jesus.
The new campus was launched in November 2018, with more than 300 inmates in attendance. Pastor Morris also shared in his Facebook Post an inspiring photo of the inmates worshipping God.
“At Gateway Church, we’re all about people because God is all about people,” Pastor Robert told Fox News. “Many of the men and women inside prison have been forgotten by society, but we want them to know we love them and God loves them, and they are our brothers and sisters in Christ.”
Pastor Robert graciously welcomed the new believers of Christ, “We welcome you guys and we love you. We are your brothers and sisters in Christ.”
After welcoming them, Pastor Robert introduced the Campus Pastor, Stephen Wilson, a former inmate who has been ministering in prisons for several years. The church also raised-up the inmates to be part of the community of ushers, multimedia team and worship team. They truly raised them to become disciples of Christ.
“Gateway has really impacted my life because many of us do not have visitors. And you guys coming in here and sharing God’s love to us has really impacted our lives,” one of the inmates shared.
What Gateway Church did for the people who were once living in darkness is truly an inspiration. They didn’t just introduce Jesus to the inmates, but they gave them so much love and hope. This is what God’s love looks like. It’s about sharing His Word and teaching people how to follow Christ.
Let’s pray for more ministries who will help our brothers and sisters in prison. Let’s also continue to pray for revival in every dark place of this world. God is working and He will use His children to bring glory to His Name.
Pastor Robert Morris can be seen on GOD TV each Sunday at 10:00 am. Read more
