Pastor Robert Morris is the founder and lead pastor of Gateway Church, a multicampus church based out of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Since its establishment in 200, the church has grown to more than 71,000 active members.
Robert’s television program telecasts in over 190 countries. In addition, his radio program, Worship & the Word with Pastor Robert airs in more than 1,800 radio markets across America.
Morris was born and raised in a Christian home where he got into the ministry at an early age. However, he was an illicit drug user and sexually promiscuous until he genuinely gave his life to Christ at the age of 19.
Robert grew up undergoing teaching the wary of Charismatic doctrine and attended two Southern Baptist colleges. However, he never earned a degree. After he befriended James Robison, the former Baptist evangelist, Morris now serves as an Apostolic Elder at Gateway. In addition, he even served as an associate pastor at a local church before resigning one year before the establishment of the Gateway Church.
The same year, Robert preached for Trinity Fellowship Network, an Amarillo-based network of charismatic churches led by Jimmy Evans. Jimmy is famous for his Marriage Today ministry. However, he also serves as one of Gateway’s Senior Pastors.

Morris openly supports Christians being active in the public arena. Furthermore, he is a member of President Donald Trump’s Executive Council of Evangelical Leaders. However, this has earned him public enmity among liberal Christians.
On the Easter Sunday of 2000, Morris launched Gateway Church at a hotel in Gravepine, Texas. Later in June 2003, the church had planned to open its original Southlake campus. The campus was opened and now hosts The King’s University, a Non-accredited Bible College founded by Jack Hayfor. This was after the University relocated from California in 2012.
As of 2020, the church claims over 40,000 active members. This would be fair to make it one of the largest churches in the United States.
