Gateway Worship is the primary worship expression for Dallas-Fort Worth based Gateway Church, one of the largest and most influential churches in North America. Leading only 200 people in its infancy, the worship team now ministers to over 40,000 congregational attendees across multiple campuses and thousands more online each week, capturing the sound and songs of the local church. One of today’s fastest growing congregations, Gateway’s gift of worship to God is being echoed in churches across the world. United with one voice, a collective of more than 40 worship leaders, musicians, songwriters and others on the team, are committed to leading the church body into a place of intimate worship and an understanding of the power of the Word of God expressed through music.

Gateway Worship has sold hundreds of thousands of albums and individual tracks while contributing numerous songs that rank within the top most-used songs in churches according to CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International). Our songs include “Oh The Blood,” “The More I Seek You,” “Come Thou Fount, Come Thou King,” “You, You Are God,” “Revelation Song,” “Worship The Great I Am”, “You Are For Me”, “Great, Great God”, and “Grace That Won’t Let Go”.
