Creating Space for
Lasting Impact is Lifegate’s 3 Year Initiative to invest fully, creatively and sacrificially in our greatest treasure: our children and the future generations to come. We believe there are three specific areas that will have the greatest return on investment for the work God wants to do through us: Raising World-Changers, Outrageous Reach and Intercepting Injustice.

You can give to Lasting Impact online through your MyLifegate account or by sending a check and writing “Lasting Impact” in the memo.

The Rase’s Story
Impacting a generation is achieved one story at a time. Listen as Ana Rase shares her own experience watching her daughter, Winter, invite Jesus to be her Lord and savior – at the age of 5! This happened through the partnership Lifegate Kids has with parents and families to take children on the next step of their spiritual journey – with life-changing results!
Our Next Step
Lifegate has a history of listening for where God is leading us and then boldly stepping out in faith towards where He leads. Watch this video to learn about our history from Pastor Les and see how Lasting Impact is our next step as we seek to make space for our future world-changers!
The Nielson’s Story
Alaina and Jonathan knew they wanted to make a difference through Lasting Impact, the question was just how big did God want them to go and how hard was it going to be to obey His leading? Listen as they talk about their journey, as a family, to commit and invest in future generations through Lasting Impact.
Why Lasting Impact? Because kids matter to God and matter to us. Right now, we have an opportunity to set the next generation of Lifegate up for success. We can make space for our future world-changers to encounter the love of God at an early age, to feel secure and to be known in community. We want them to have the tools they will need to live lives of influence and righteousness.

The Beerman’s Story

Growing Up at Lifegate
We asked a group of people who have grown up at Lifegate about their experience. Here’s what they said.
We envision newly constructed and renovated facilities in our existing campuses and school where kids and youth continuously encounter God, embrace His Kingdom, grow in His Word and are inspired to live as cultural thermostats who set the spiritual temperature of our world and make a lasting impact.
Our local campuses makes it easier for people to engage with the life that Jesus offers. Our campuses are having a lasting impact through weekend services and outreaches tailored to their communities. We are convinced that the local church is vital to advancing the Kingdom of God and this often begins with parents and children.
Lifegate has a history of intercepting injustice in our world. For over 30 years, we have invested in reaching those who live in the most unreached places in our world, and we continue to give to and go where there is the greatest darkness and need. The two areas we are focusing on for the next three years are the refugee crisis and sex trafficking.
