James Morris is the associate senior pastor of Gateway Church and leads the staff and congregation alongside his father, Pastor Robert Morris. James is a visionary leader who brings innovation, organization, and godly insight and wisdom to every area he oversees.
In February 2022, Pastor Robert nominated James to be his successor. After an eight-month vetting process and seeking the Lord for confirmation, every elder at Gateway Church received a word from God affirming James as the next senior pastor. In September 2022, they unanimously voted for James. He will begin serving as senior pastor in the spring of 2025 and is excited about leading Gateway into its next season.
James has been married to Bridgette since 2009, and they have three amazing kids: Parker, Mitchell, and Brae.
