 The Jobs for Life program consists of 16 sessions that teach men and women timeless biblical principles concerning the value of work and the ways those principles are applied in the marketplace. By focusing primarily on character development and confidence, participants finish the program with the core work readiness skills and attitudes needed to succeed in work and in life.


Our Jobs for Life program has had 14 graduates, 10 are currently employed  and 38 Volunteers have given 992 volunteer hours to help make that happen.

What is a Champion?

A champion is a volunteer mentor who is willing to enter into a one-on-one relationship with a  Jobs for Life student. The champion helps the student reach his/her God-given potential by encouraging the student during the class and maintaining support once the student is employed. Ideally, the champion and the student will develop a lifelong relationship with one another so that each will be blessed by experiencing life's journey together.


Jobs for Life classes begin Wednesday, October 23rd. For more information about how you can help please contact Ashley Lauer at 417.337.8103 or email ashley@jesuswashomeless.org.

Gateway Branson
Church for people who don't like church!
Join us every Sunday at 10:30 am for FREE breakfast. Service begins at 11:00-11:59 am
Come as you are

You don't have to dress up. Everyone is welcome at Gateway regardless of what you think about church or God or religion. Gateway Branson Internet Campus is a place where God meets people who are far from perfect. This church is for people who don't really like church. This is a safe place for skeptics and doubters to ask their questions. We know lots of people have been burned by church experiences in the past. We hope this is a place where everyone can sort out authentic faith in a very real God and begin to experience it themselves.

But don't stay
that way
Spectators find it's hard to grow at this church. Take a risk. Meet some people. Get involved. Go deeper. Life change is about momentum - little steps you take toward God that lead to extraordinary results.
