What is Gate Keepers?

The inspiration for Gate Keepers comes primarily from Lamentations 5. In describing the condition of destroyed Jerusalem, Jeremiah says “The elders no longer sit in the city gates; the young men no longer dance and sing.” In today’s world, this absence of gate keeper  – resource protectors, wisdom bearers, role models, history keepers, story tellers, community filters, etc – makes our community vulnerable to outside forces that hinder and harm us. Filling this void is a key factor in restoring hope and rebuilding our communities. 

Additionally, the book of Nehemiah highlights the importance of rebuilding the confidence of men. He did this by empowering them to retake their place as builders and protectors of the community’s walls and gates.

Thus, the mission of The Gate Keeper Movement:  to bring men of respect back to the gates and bring respect back to the men who are at the gates.  

Gate Keepers Advance

The Gate Keepers Advance (we’re seeking to move forward with no retreat) is one way we are seeking to accomplish the goal  bring men of respect back to the gates and bring respect back to the men who are at the gates.  The Advance is a short, power-packed gathering of men of all ages.
