Gabrielle Draper is an energetic and enthusiastic leader with a deep love for Jesus and people. She has been married to Stephen for 10 years, and together they have three beautiful girls. Gabrielle has always been inspired by 1 Timothy 4:12, which encourages young believers to set an example in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. This verse, along with the mentoring relationship between Paul and Timothy, has shaped her approach to leadership and discipleship.

Growing up as a child of the founding Pastor of Gateway Church, Gabrielle decided to follow Jesus at a young age. She has been involved in children’s ministry since she was old enough to help in the nursery. After marrying Stephen, she served as the Children’s Director at a local church plant for six years. Gabrielle holds a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry and a Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership.

Passionate about discipleship and leadership development, Gabrielle loves guiding children through their first steps and next steps in their faith journey. She believes that being young shouldn’t stop anyone from fulfilling God’s calling. Gabrielle’s dedication to children’s ministry is evident as she helps them understand who Jesus is, what He has done for them, and what it means to be a disciple who makes disciples.
