LEAD PASTOR

 Daryl Reininger 

 Daryl is joined by his wife of 15 years, Evan, and his two children Logan (11) and Tal (8).  Daryl has been in full-time ministry for over 20 years. He was a student minister for 17 years throughout the state of Oklahoma, and as an associate pastor in Westborough Massachusetts for 3.5 years.  For the last 1.5 years Daryl has been attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary fulltime and serving part-time as the interim pastor of Federated Church in Kingfisher Oklahoma.  Daryl graduated with his Master’s of Divinity in December 2019 and then joined Gateway Community Church in April of this year.

Daryl has a passion to teach the Bible in way that can be understood and applied to our daily lives.  He believes that the Bible is our foundation in life and our guide to hear and respond to the Holy Spirit’s leadership.  Daryl also has a love and passion for people.  He loves the idea that shepherds should smell like their sheep and believes that John 10:1-18 is a biblical outline for his job description.  His prayer and hope for Gateway Community Church is to primarily reach the Deer Creek/Edmond area with the Gospel while also seeking to reach the state and the world (Acts 1:7-8).  


His hope is that this church family would REACH unbelievers and uncommitted Christians with the Gospel then GROW them to be more like Christ through the teaching of the Bible and fellowship and then SEND them out with the Gospel to Reach and Grow their neighborhoods, states and world. (Matthew 28:18-20)
