Well I’m not sure what to put on this page because technology is not my favorite thing.  I would much rather be sharing face to face with new and old friends alike.  Patricia and I began attending Gateway in 1994 and our cups were empty.  The spirit-filled worship and Christ-centered friendships we found here have truly been refreshing.  I was born, raised and still live on a working cattle and sheep ranch 40 miles south west of Roswell, NM.  In 2003 we diversified the ranch into a guest ranch where we enjoy hosting people from all over the world.  I have served as an elder at Gateway since 2001.  Our church family is a place where we laugh and cry together as we encourage each other to keep following Jesus.

My wife, Jackie, and I moved to Ruidoso to be closer to our family in 2000, and after our visit to the Gateway church, we knew we had found a new family of loving people that we wanted to be a part of. It was the beginning of a new life for us, filled with challenges of being a part of the teaching program of the church and cultivating and being enriched with a host of new friends. Being part of an effort to spread the love of God through the message of Jesus Christ has been the most rewarding part of the long life God has blessed me with. Someone accurately conveyed truth when he wrote

“The best use of life is love; the best expression of love is time; the best time to love is now.”

My wife, Jeri, and I and our three sons Kody, Kent and Kyle moved from the Silver City, New Mexico area to Ruidoso in 1982.  I started Ruidoso Land Surveying Company in 1983 and Jeri has been a part of that, has raised a family, and teaches reading at the Ruidoso public schools.  The Sparks family became a part of the Gateway family in the fall of 1982.  Our daughter Kammi was born in 1983 and daughter Kara in 1986.  All five children started school in Ruidoso and graduated from Ruidoso High School.  My family and I have enjoyed activities such as running, scuba diving, biking, hiking, caving, sports and skiing, but the heart of our family has been seeking to know God and his son Jesus Christ.  The believers that meet at Gateway have been a large part of growing and maturing my faith, knowledge and understanding of God, His kingdom and His son.  I was pleased to be chosen to become a shepherd to the flock of believers that meet at the Gateway church in 2001.  I am blessed and encouraged to serve and glorify our Father and His Son with our Gateway family in our efforts to spread His gospel and love in Ruidoso, Mexico, the Phillipines, Brazil, Singapore and through out the world,
