Our yearly miracle offering is a practice where we prayerfully activate our Faith and commit to seek God so we can contribute to care of the church Now, into the Future and by preparing for Expansion.  

“The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’
Matthew 25:23 (NLT)


Since 2018, our yearly Miracle Offering has been a time where we come together as the church to believe for God’s continued provision to care for what God has provided for us and faithfully look ahead to where God is directing us.

It is imperative for each of us to know our defining moments of provision and miracles where God has supplied every need, where we have walked through dry river beds, where we have stood against every opposition, power, principality and stepped into the promises and leading of God.

DEFINING MOMENT – In 1999 Gateway Church was blessed to have Ps. Phil and Glenys join us as Senior Pastors. They led us throughout the next 15 years in faith to see many miracles, promises and defining moments come to pass.

DEFINING MOMENT – We purchased 5 acres on the Bellarine Highway in a massive step of faith and supernatural provision while still renting a building in Geelong West. The church body had been faithful and had paid just over half of the land off on the highway (We still own this land). With a miracle of God’s provision, a couple contributed close to $60,000 to clear the loan with one cheque. 

DEFINING MOMENT – After renting a school and setting up for Sunday services week to week, we started renting our current Moolap Station Road building, our first permanent venue. During this time, we had the feeling that this could be home; however, the building was owned by another faith-based organisation. We put together a video to present the vision and mission of our church to the owners. They liked what they saw and partnered with the vision. They gifted us this building for the same price they paid for it many years before. Through God’s miraculous provision, we secured finance with a $50,000 deposit.

We now have a permanent building on 15 acres that has been fit out and developed; making possible our mission of being planted within the greater community.

We could continue with testimony of the financial provisions, the lives changed, the dry river beds crossed, the awe and reverence moments, the provision of projects that have developed the 15 acres of property that we are on.

We now find ourselves in a place where we are believing for even greater defining moments; for miracles and provision that is supernatural and powerful. 


So we can continue the work of the Gospel in Geelong, Australia and abroad. We believe that we are personally and collectively called to be out in the community seeing people loved and restored as the gospel reaches them with grace and love.

We are called and purposed in Jesus to participate and contribute to the Gospel going out and the Kingdom growing through the local church.

Our Mission
We exist to care for our community and connect every individual and their families to God;
to see all loved, reached, included, discipled and restored.

Our Heartbeat
That all would have the opportunity for relationship with God and know God’s grace to all.


Caring for Our Building Facilities

Understanding how God has provided for us in the past motivates us to care for it now.
We believe we are called to care for and maintain all that He has provided.

Creating Spaces for Mission & Vision
Preparing for Future Development

We believe the local church exists to share the Good News of Jesus.

By reducing our loan we aim to be ready for the future development that needs to take place. This is about being ready to create spaces and facilities for the Good News of Jesus to be shared and for people to be cared for.

“It’s my heart that we would prolifically activate a culture of invitation in our Church” – Ps. Lee Eden

It is our desire to see you, the church, activated to reach out to friends, family, collegues and neighbours with the Good News and Hope of Jesus.  Your invitation has the power to change a life.

We encourage you to spend time in prayer, asking God, what it is that He would like your or your family to give to this Miracle Offering? Ask the Holy Spirit to activate the gift of faith for you to believe for provision beyond natural circumstance.

To clarify, this offering is outside of our normal tithes and offerings. It is specifically targeted at a number of things as outlined on the previous pages.

We believe that we are called to have maximum impact as a local church and be a church that influences in broad number of contexts. That’s why we have committed to this annual practice of Building the House through our Miracle Offering.

We are actively taking care of our people, buildings and community and readying ourselves for new projects and possibilities.

Thank you for your heart and commitment to your local church.


Prayerfully consider what your faith contribution will be. It is not about equal giving, but as each individual/family seeks God, together we can have a significant impact.


Plan for generosity. Every faith contribution requires a plan. Don‘t underestimate the power of budgeting for your generosity.


Put your faith into action by bringing your offering on September 25th. (You are welcome to give over a number of weeks if needed).
