The Team

Tom Schiave - Lead Pastor

Tom and Kathy have ministered in a variety of churches over the last 36 years. When not spending time with their daughter Dawn and her husband Josh, Tom and Kathy can be found hiking in the Gorge, watching the waves at the Oregon Coast or taking in a movie at one of the area theaters. Tom's heart desire is that everyone, compelled by God's love, becomes a follower of Jesus who enjoys a growing relationship with Him, encourages others on their journey and engages in ministry inside and outside the church.

Brian Newcombe - Associate Pastor

Brian is married to Kathy and is father to three grown daughters. He has seen nearly three decades of ministry at Gateway. One might think he likes it here! His passion is to provide growth settings for children and adults and encourage members in finding meaningful areas of service. Family and hiking are his other two loves.

Drew Heftye - Director of Student Ministries

Drew has been in leadership roles in youth ministry since he was 14. He has a passion for seeing youth come into a relationship with Jesus Christ and living that relationship out. In 2015, Drew graduated with a Masters of Christian Leadership from Multnomah Biblical Seminary. When not using his passion for ministry, Drew spends his time being creative and moonlighting as a Portland area tour guide for his friends. He also serves as a director at our Pacific Camps afterschool ministry.
