Gate Ministries Sandton
Gate Ministries Sandton (GMS) was formally launched at the Balalaika Protea Hotel, Sandton City, on the 19th of February 2012. It was birthed out of a divine mandate given to Thamo Naidoo. The directive was unequivocally simple and clear – a new season has dawned upon the church that must visibly announce and tangibly express itself through congregations strategically positioned in gateway cities globally. This season, named in some circles as the ‘apostolic season,’ was born at least two decades ago in relative obscurity and insignificance. Through this period of time it has endured the rigorous processes of spiritual and physical formation before presenting itself as a fresh biblical paradigm distinct from that of its Pentecostal/Charismatic counterparts. At the heart of this season is the passionate pursuit to align the church to apostolic biblical patterns, free from conformity to secular and humanistic influences.
GMS serves as an apostolic centre in the heart of the economic capital of South Africa. Its mandate is to be a strategic gate for the presentation, proclamation and modelling of the apostolic message to the nations. In pursuit of its mandate GMS will seek to constructively and practically provide a biblical, Christocentric model of ministry, offering a deeper spiritual encounter for the family of God.
