About Pathways Texas

The nations are coming to Texas in droves. Yes, the Lone Star State has become a magnet for some of the world’s most unreached peoples. Houston and Austin are especially significant hubs for engaging some of the least evangelized people groups from around the globe.

This makes Texas a strategic place for the people of God to live on mission. Global Gates is on the front lines of where God is at work in this state as we seek to reach people from Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and Sikh backgrounds with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This internship is a nine-month cross-cultural, missionary training. It started in Houston and has expanded to now include Austin.

Training from Experts

Pathways Texas is geared to both full-time and part-time missionaries. It is layman friendly. For example, if you work full-time or part-time you can still do the internship. We encourage our interns to live in an apartment complex that houses their chosen people group for at least the nine-month duration of the internship.

Monday and Tuesday nights from 6:00-9:00 are reserved for training. These weekly meetings are a time for interns to gather as a group with mentors for a meal, community and fellowship, and equipping.

Veteran practitioners train interns in best missionary practices.

Each intern builds their own six-month strategy plan for establishing a church through David Garrison’s Strategy Coordinator Training Program.

Together with mentors, interns gather unreached peoples in their apartment complex. Interns learn and apply contextual gospel sharing with Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs.

Global Gates sends interns on a short-term mission trip to the country of origin of their people group to examine the inner workings of a Jesus movement.

Interns also will receive training in Bible storying, how to learn a new language, case studies, “T4T - Training for Trainers,” “Experiencing God Study,” finding Fourth Soil people, and cross-cultural sharing and living.

Ministry and outreach will take place after business hours and on the weekends.

"The Pathways internship has been a great training experience in reaching unreached people groups." - Brittany F., former Pathways Texas intern

“9 … And behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” - Revelation 7:9-10
