We are pleased to be able to partner with MIssionInsite

(ACS Technologies).

A demographic and geographic strategy support site. They enable churches to know who they are and who their neighbors are so they can provide greater ministry outreach. MissionInsite is offered courtesy of Gateway Conference for our churches.

MissionInsite empowers faith-based and nonprofit organizations with the tools they need to visualize and cultivate their current and prospective members, donors and volunteers and solve their most difficult challenges. With a combined experience in the fields of non-profit and church development, strategic planning and mission context analysis, co-founders Mike Regele, Chuck Salter and Peter Wernett believe advancing an organization’s Mission, Vision and Sustainability should be cost effective and attainable.
