Rev. Eric Gates


My diverse background of service and life experiences, including service as a Reconnaissance Marine in the U.S. Marine Corps for 8 years and as an Austin Police Officer for 9 years, helped build my foundation to be of service to others. After finding a relationship with God, I began to serve others in a new way as a spiritual director in alcohol and drug treatment centers in central Texas prior to my call as a minister in the church.

We are here to support you in your times of trouble, loss, and grief, as well as to celebrate the joys and accomplishments you experience.
