Uniting the heartbeat of Gateway Church with the powerful expression of worship that is Gateway Worship, gatewayNEXT, is changing the definition of children’s worship, as they release their first album in March 2012. gatewayNEXT is a natural extension of the passionate pursuit of God already established at Gateway, combined with a relevant view of who the next generation is and how they see and hear God. Their music and mission serve as a glance into their journey of discovery and understanding of the power and presence of God in their daily lives.
Unique from its inception, gatewayNEXT is a tapestry of talent woven together to internally build the next generation of worship leaders. Encouraging intimacy and personal commitment from the young lives that are pursuing God’s presence, gatewayNEXT represents an age demographic that has been finding their voice as a generation that clearly hears and desires to obey the voice of the one true God. The transition from childhood Bible songs to contemporary worship songs is finally bridged with the songs and worship of gatewayNEXT, an expression relevant to young pre-teens who desire to mature while remaining true to the evolving of their spiritual and natural lives.
Understanding that music represents a vital part of every generation, this fresh and compelling sound brings with it a renewed commitment to believe that the leaders and world changers of tomorrow are evolving now in everyday life. gatewayNEXT is the future of worship in an expression of powerful praise and worship for the next generation-today.
