He announced it to his congregation on Sunday and said, “We have a new campus. And you’re gonna be really surprised.”
One of the inmates said, “Gateway has really impacted my life because a lot of us do not have visits, and you guys comin’ in here and sharing y’alls love to us has really impacted our life.”
It’s reported that Stephen Wilson, who’s an ex-offender went to seminary school will serve as the Gateway Coffield campus pastor.
Morris said, “We welcome you guys and we love you. We are your brothers and sisters in Christ. We’re excited that we have a campus there now.”
In the next two years, the church has plans to open ten other prison campuses.
