Pastors & Staff

Steve Colaw

Head Pastor

Steve has served as the Sr. Pastor of Gateway Church since July of 2001. He loves Jesus, his family, St. Louis Cardinals baseball and U2... in that order. He and his wife, Merita have five beautiful children and one insane cat (which is ironic since Pastor Steve isn’t a “cat person”) and  a beagle that thinks he's a cat.   It's never dull – or quiet – at the Colaw house. 

Mark Valloni

Worship Pastor

Mark has been the worship leader at Gateway Church since August of 2008. Mark is a gifted musician from a family of gifted musicians.  But more than music, Mark has a heart for Jesus and desire to lead people in authentic worship. Mark and his wife Becca live in O'Fallon, MO.

Matt & Katelyn Frkovic 

Youth Pastors

Matt & Katelyn have been leading the youth ministry at Gateway Church since 2017.  They are very passionate about serving the students at Gateway Church. Wednesday nights at Gateway feel like home. Getting to know the teens in our community and do life with them is something they really enjoy. Outside of church they  enjoy being with  friends and family and playing with their daughter and watching her grow. They are passionate about coffee, the Avenger's, and all things Disney!

Patty Coloma

Office Administrator

Patty has been the office administrator at Gateway Church since 2016.  She and her husband, Tony, grew up on the St. Louis area but have lived all over the mid-west.  Not only is Patty an amazing office administrator, but she is an avid fan of all things Disney and an accomplished artist as well.
