Chris is part of the Gateway Leadership Team and is one of our Senior Leaders.
He and his wife, Hope, moved to New Zealand from the UK in 2013 and joined our staff team, after visiting Gateway many times over the years. Before working at Gateway, Chris was the International Missions Director for the Elim Pentecostal Churches in the UK.

Chris loves people, having the opportunity to be involved in their lives and getting to know their journey and story. In his spare time, Chris will usually be found reading or doing something that revolves around sport, particularly rugby. You might even find him refereeing the occasional local rugby game.

Hope Jones

Senior Leader

Hope is part of the Pastoral Team and is also part of the Gateway Leadership Team.
Hope really values the importance of doing the ‘small things’ well as great opportunities often disguise themselves in small tasks. She is passionate about helping people find their place in our community; helping them to develop strong foundations, grounded in God’s Word and to live lives of purpose and influence.

Hope and her husband, Chris, moved to New Zealand from the UK in 2013 and joined our staff team, having visited Gateway many times over the years.

Before coming to New Zealand, Hope worked in administration in a school for children with Special Educational Needs. She enjoys travel and is looking forward to exploring more of beautiful New Zealand.
