Pastors Albert and Genny Castaneda
As soon as Pastors Albert and Genny surrendered their lives to Christ at the age 17, God placed in them a passion to love and reach broken people. After serving as Youth Pastors for 10 years and 2.5 years as Young Adult Pastors at Gateway City Church, God began to stir up the memories of a long time dream to start a church.
The call and desire in their heart to uproot their life in the Bay Area and move to Phoenix was strong, and God used Gateway City Church lead pastor David Cannistraci to confirm their call. God told Pastor David that Gateway City Church would expand to 10 cities through a multisite vision and when he heard Albert and Genny’s heart for Phoenix, he agreed that this was one of the cities.
Albert and Genny feel honored and excited that Jesus would choose them to show His heart, vision and love to the people of Phoenix. They are there to meet and come alongside anyone in need. Gateway City Church Phoenix is place where everyone from every background, nationality and age can belong. If you want to live a life of purpose, a new start, healing, freedom, discipleship, and a place to call home, Albert and Genny want to welcome you to Gateway City Church Phoenix.
