Located in Winter Park, FL just north of downtown Orlando, Gateway Church is a vibrant and diverse community of Christ-followers from across Central Florida.  Celebrating 60+ years of worship, community, disciple-making and ministry Gateway is a church home that provides a place for people to come to know Christ and to grow in a personal relationship with him as a part of a loving and encouraging church family that reaches out near and far to share the Good News of life in Jesus Christ.

We are people with all kinds of backgrounds and experiences (both good and bad) who are united together through the common bond of forgiveness, love and transformation that we experience through Jesus.  We invite you to come and experience life in a community of  everyday people who are experiencing exceptional freedom, real relationships, and fulfilling personal growth  as we journey together in the life that God has given us.

Bruce Mayhew, Pastor

Bruce Mayhew, Pastor

Hello I am Bruce Mayhew, a follower of Christ, who is happily married to my beautiful wife, Julie. I am blessed with three incredible daughters that bring great joy and wonderful drama to our lives. I am also privileged to be the Pastor of a wonderful congregation of followers of Christ at Gateway Church in Winter Park, FL. I love to teach–not only at KBC, but also as an adjunct professor at the Orlando Extension of the Baptist College of Florida. I volunteer as a mentor at Killarney Elementary School and serve on the Orange County Public School's Faith-Based Advisory Council. I would love to meet you and I welcome you to come and be our guest here at Gateway. 

I have previously served as Pastor of Olivet Baptist Church in Dublin, GA and Our Savior's Community Church in Oviedo, FL.  I was ordained at Northland Church in Longwood, FL where I served as the Director of the Sanford Ministry Center.  The ministry center concept was a precursor to the current distributed church model.  I was born in Conway, Arkansas and raised in Santa Ana, California and Warner Robins, Georgia. I graduated from the University of Georgia (B.S. Psychology) and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MDIVBL).
