With power coming from within all of us awakening our knowledge of divinity, we are able to transform systems and build synergy that is allowing us to be more collectively than we are individually.

About Gateway University

In this time of the Great Awakening and rapid change, we are training leaders who are able to disengage from fear and anger, and engage with connection and compassion. As we connect in compassion, our genius is activated to call forth the wisdom, programs, information, and experience needed to carry humanity into a future vision of peace. This vision includes justice, economic, social and educational systems within a healthy planet where we can all thrive.

With power coming from within all of us, awakening our knowledge of divinity, we are able to transform systems allowing us to be more than we are individually.

We are divine energy in action, called to awaken the rest of the world. We have the wisdom. We are the masters. We are the conduits of Spirit.

Who are we?
We provide community connection for our soul family. We are a community of like-minded souls, coming together in union. Communing in the Presence of Higher Consciousness to heal, expand, and grow. This is a safe place to practice BEing who we are without fear.
We offer wisdom teachings that re-unite the soul and eternal Self with the personality and life. These wisdom teachings help us develop soft or inner skills that link the inner and outer worlds. Through the development of our inner senses, abilities, and blessings, we are able to have deeper insight into world events, connect more intimately with our Selves and others, and to bring forward the gifts of wisdom innate within each of us.
Gateway fosters an environment where members and friends can share, teach, transmit wisdom living within their consciousness.
Empowering Students

Gateway Community and University creates a safe place to learn, develop skills, and to practice those skills with others. As a degree-granting university, we are empowered to recognize the genius in each student. Through real-world projects, studies, and experiences that transform, the student receives her personal mantle of authority for her life purpose and soul calling.

Our unique and individual degree programs acknowledge the leadership and excellence of our students while opening the universal field of potential to empower and manifest divine visions in the world of form.

Treasurer Sherri Thiringer-Richards

I spent 30 years in the corporate world working in finance, marketing, operations, distribution, purchasing, information technology, and product planning. During my time in the corporate world, I had the opportunity to work with, and learn from, hundreds of successful and some not so successful entrepreneurs.  While working for one of the top companies In the world, I was able to learn how to create and sustain a solid business foundation in a rapidly changing economy.  Along the way I saw many small companies struggle with the "business of their business".  They just didn’t know what they didn’t know.  I always wanted to help.

I also work with women and their personal finances.  I am not a financial advisor or an investor; what I do precedes that.  Known to many as the Money Therapist, I use an innovative, creative, (sometimes radical) approach to finances and daily money management. I have helped many women transform their lives using proven, innovative and FUN step-by-step money management strategies.  

Secretary Rev. Eva McGinnis

Eva has had a varied career in higher education, counseling and working in non-profit organizations from which she has happily retired. She is the co-founder of Oakbridge University (1989) and has been facilitating the Jeshua: The Personal Christ book series since 2015, including recording inspired meditations.  An honorary ordained Angel Minister through Gateway, she also serves as Prayer Chaplain and is a frequent speaker at Unity in the Olympics Church. She is a published poet and spreads her jeweled love through the Bead-Love-It business, which she creates with her husband of 50 years. On her spiritual journey, Eva is devoted to be a bringer of Light and Love, wherever she finds herself.

Rev. Declan Kavanagh

"After surviving a Near Death experience, I met my Guides and my Guardian Angel. This set me off on my travels to know more of this beautiful world and our magnificent bodies. Through working with food, energy and spirit, I was led to the Americas, Costa Rica, Mexico and the Himalayas, and a lot of places in-between.

"I am now in a place of surrender opening up to the new energies of the 21 st century where I encourage the growth of Love and the energies of Peace. By being a beacon of light and working with the breath, I help people open up to there higher conscious.

"I became a Minister with Gateway in 2018 and my mission is to awaken people to their power and to become a co-creator with Spirit." -- Declan
