Description

Gateway Chapel is a ministry where young, and seasoned professionals are trained to become urban missionaries in their career and businesses, through a training and mentoring programme.  Some of their training has been made available online, to enable day time workers to be involved. 

Courses include: 'How To Do Well At A Job Interview', 'How To Turn You Passion Into Profit' and 'How To Get Out Of Debt'.

Rationale

Gateway Chapel explain 'Our training and development programmes focus on developing people spiritually, socially, emotionally and professionally with the ultimate objective of ensuring that our people are thoroughly equipped to fulfil their personal, career and business aspirations.' Thriving people help make thriving communities. Gateway Chapel helps individuals to positively impact their local areas.

Outcome

Tope Oso, who attended a training programme, said:

"Prior to attending GWC training programmes I have always wanted to do more than my 9-5 job and also wanted to impact my local community. With the training received at Gateway Chapel, I was able to start a voluntary group in my local borough, providing housing and benefits advice to service users facing homelessness.

I started the project in 2007, and since then, the project has been growing from strength to strength, with continued support from Gateway Chapel. The project is now a registered charity providing support and advice to an average of 50 service users yearly, preventing a lot of families and individuals from becoming homeless.

Gateway Chapel training programmes have impacted my life in so many ways, and as a result, I have been able to be a source of blessing to my community."
