Pastor Roger McPhail & Pastor Teresa McPhail Bios

Pastoral Bios | What We Believe | The Way We Worship


                                         Pastor Roger McPhail
                                         Rev. Roger McPhail and his wife, Rev. Teresa McPhail, founded Gateway City Church formerly New Hope Fellowship Church in 1990. It is a vibrant, growing church, which has passion for the presence of God and desires to see His tangible, manifested presence walking on each street of the city of New York through every believer.

Both Apostle and Pastor, Rev. McPhail moves prophetically and is a dynamic preacher and passionate worshiper. He leads his people to be the same. Rev. McPhail is on the cutting edge of interpreting post-modern Christianity, dialoguing with emerging church leaders, seeking and discerning the relevancy of Christ in our culture.

He is a member of the International Coalition of Apostles, headed by Dr. C. Peter Wagner. Rev. McPhail is the Chancellor of the regional Wagner Leadership Institute, established by Dr. Wagner.  Those who attend will have the finest teaching from powerful apostolic leaders from across the nation. Its goal is to equip leaders in the necessary skills for effective ministry in their gifting for power evangelism in the marketplace, the church and the street, to build the Body of Christ.

The Lord has put a passion and burden in Rev. McPhail's heart to unite the city's pastors and go in to the streets to see transformation. In response to this burden, Rev. McPhail founded Mission New York, which is a network of over 225 pastors that meet monthly for prayer and impartation of vision. Strategies are discussed and city-reaching efforts are implemented. One such city-reaching event was Pray New York, where Rev. McPhail and the Mission New York pastors and their congregations, "prayer-walked" all 9,400 blocks of Brooklyn, as well as having intercessors pray over every highway, waterway, subway line, bridge and airport. Jesus is enthroned over this city!

The success of these city wide endeavors have been covered by periodicals such as Billy Grahams' "Decision" Magazine, the Assemblies of God, "Evangel," Toronto Airport Fellowship, "Spread the Fire, Robert Stearns' "Kairos" as well it has been featured in transformation video's produced by the Assemblies of God and Ed Silvoso's "Harvest Evangelism." CBS Evening News actually covered one of Gateway City's Outreaches.

These past 20 years of ministry have seen much movement in the Spirit of God. Because of Rev. McPhail's faith, vision and leadership, Gateway City is poised to move in destiny and not status quo. Gateway City is a multi-cultural, multi-generational congregation with a city-reaching vision. It has grown from a prayer meeting in a rented facility to a thriving congregation with an elementary school, having purchased several properties to accommodate a continually expanding ministry. The latest purchase, when complete, will house a sanctuary for 1,000 people.

Pastor Teresa McPhail

Pastor Teresa McPhail, is co-founder and co-Pastor of Gateway City Church. She moves under a prophetic anointing for spiritual warfare, and heads up a team of intercessors who know how to pray the kingdom of heaven down to the kingdom of earth. She has a heart to see people set free and moving in their destiny so she trains and oversees Healing and Deliverance Teams. She is also currently working to create a network of intercessors from the Mission New York base of pastors. (See details about Mission New York under Pastor Roger McPhail's bio.)

Rev. Teresa McPhail is a preacher and teacher who believes strongly in developing the next generation of Christians, from nursery age to college and career. Her background in education, coupled with her heart for children, has inspired her efforts for a higher standard in Christian education, Together with her husband, she has founded four Christian schools during the past 25 years. This passion is born out of a vision she experienced early in her Christian walk, where God revealed to her just how much He values children. She is currently writing a book entitled, "The Five Anointings of Children In Intercession," which will detail the effective fervency of the prayers of children and how establish a children's prayer ministry.

Gateway City Church is committed to a broad-based ministry that responds to the needs of its members and the community. In response to this commitment, Community Ministry Groups have been established, under Pastor Teresa's leadership. These are small group meetings in various homes. Semi-annual themes are established and each group's leader trains with Pastor Teresa about how to present these themes in accordance with the mission statement of the Community Ministry Groups. (For further details, visit the page about Gateway City's ministries.)

Pastor Teresa works tirelessly with her husband to oversee the growing family that is Gateway City Church, believing passionately that all who enter the doors of this church should encounter the love of the Father in a deeper, more personal way, through faith in Jesus Christ.
