    Luke & Julie

    Luke Weaver is the Director of Gateway House of Prayer in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. Raised in Lancaster County, Luke has a heart to see this region transformed by the presence and power of God. He served on staff at a YWAM base in Colorado and Solid Rock Foundation Ministries where God began developing in him a passion for missions and discipleship as he extensively traveled the nations leading teams in outreach and worship. In 2009, Luke and his family moved back to Lancaster County knowing they were called to receive training to build a House of Prayer. Now a licensed minister through HarvestNET International, Luke directs Gateway with increased zeal to see the Lord unite the Body of Christ in Lancaster County and the surrounding regions. He and his wife, Julie, desire to build communities around worship, prayer, discipleship, and missions, believing that God will bring His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. They reside in Ephrata, and Luke enjoys playing sports and spending time with his 5 children.

    Nick & Lindsey

    Nick was born in Anaheim, California in 1982 to his creative and animated missionary parents Stephen Roy and Cindy Ann, who are both still happily married and all googoo eyes for each other (a little gross!). He grew up in both California and a couple years in Germany before moving to Pennsylvania in 1996. From the time he was 5, he thought that when he grew up, he’d be a missionary like his dad. Along the journey, Nick met Lindsey who captured his attention and left him no choice but to ask her to marry him ..which a couple years down the road then lead to two the wonderful and sometimes a little crazy babies in a baby carriage: Zadok (2) and Selah (1). Their family joyfully resides in the little town of Ephrata just down the road from the house of prayer. Nick enjoys running, playing his guitar, and creating designs and things with his camera.

    Lindsey was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1989 to her two loving and entrepreneurial parents. After graduating high school, Lindsey spent six months overseas with YWAM, completing three month discipleship trianing school in Chile followed by three months of outreach and preaching of the gospel in Haiti, Dominican Republic and Cuba. Lindsey later Graduated form central pennsylvania college and worked as a Physical Therapist Assistant for three years before becoming a full-time Mom and part-time missionary with her husband at Gateway.
