Here at Gateway, our mission is to connect people to God and others. Our media team is filled with kind, intelligent people who embody that same mission. Technology in the 21st century has evolved into a crucial part of our livelihood. Our goal as a team is to utilize technology as an innovative path to help advance the kingdom of God.
Our media ministry leader is Steven Stanley! Steven began attending and volunteering here at Gateway when he was 14 years old. He attended and worked at the College of Staten Island, graduating with a Bachelors of Arts degree in video production. Steven has a strong passion for teaching and helping others in the media field. His favorite thing about our church is Gateway's love for people!
There are various ways to join our team! For both of our Sunday services, we have a full team of 6-7 people including two camera operators, a technical director, a lighting engineer, a live stream technician, and a graphics operator - any of which could be you! If you have a passion for photography/videography, feel free to speak to our ministry leader as we have special positions open for you!

No experience but still want to serve? No problem! Our media team offers full training for any position over a three week span. During the first week, you'll have the opportunity to shadow one of our current crew members on the position of your choice. In the following weeks, you'll be able to operate the equipment on your own while one of our crew members shadows you, helping you whenever you need! Training is an exciting and team building adventure where you'll learn new skills and build friendships.
