Partial registration is not available. We recommend registering and attending as much of the conference as your schedule will allow.
All tickets for this conference are general admission. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each session. There will be a number of seats saved for worship teams, guest speakers and large groups (40+). Any other seat-saving before the doors open is not allowed.
Due to safety concerns we do not allow adults into the building that is not a registered Gateway Student Conference volunteer or staff member. We require every adult working conference to have a background check. This is the best way for us to ensure your student is safe. Thank you for understanding.
If the conference is NOT sold out, at-the-door registration will be accepted at the At The Door rate.
Financial aid applications will be available to students currently attending Gateway Students on Wednesday nights beginning April 15, 2022. If you are in need of financial aid for a current Gateway Student, please contact his or her campus directly.

The registration fee covers conference admission only. Meals, hotel, and transportation are not included.
You should bring your Bible and money for meal purchases onsite or conference merchandise.
Casual attire is recommended. The auditorium is enclosed and air-conditioned. Because the temperatures may vary, we encourage wearing jeans and layered clothing. We suggest bringing a light jacket or hoodie. All of our activities will be indoors.
Check-in begins on Wednesday, July 20 at 4:00 pm. Even though the first session of the conference doesn’t start until 7:00 pm, we start check-in early to accommodate those traveling from out of town and those interested in avoiding lines. The conference concludes on Friday, July 22 by 10pm.
Gateway Student Conference is designed for Junior High and Senior High students (7-12th graders for the 2021-2022 school year) as well as youth leaders and youth pastors.
The registration fee covers conference admission and admittance to the Youth Pastor Track (for adult youth pastors). You may also want to bring additional money to purchase conference merchandise.
The meal wristband is available as an ‘add-on’ to your ticket in Brushfire before July 1st. Each meal wristband costs $40 and covers four meals (lunch and dinner on Thursday and Friday). These wristbands cover all meals and there is not another option for certain meal times only. If you purchased a meal wristband, you will receive it at check in. To pick up your meal, go to the meal pick up tent marked on your map and show the Food team your meal wristband.
Some examples of meals we provided the past few years include BBQ sandwiches, Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, cheeseburgers and turkey sandwiches (all meals came with chips and a drink). Although we can’t guarantee specific meals, for GWSC22 we expect to serve similar meals. Unfortunately, we are not currently able to accommodate food allergies. Additional food is available for purchase at the Cafe.
Meals are not included in the cost of registration. However, we do have meal wristbands available for purchase as well as drinks and snacks from the Gateway Cafe. There are also many area restaurants, but we encourage calling ahead for large groups.
Southlake is a short, 15-minute drive from DFW airport. Dallas Love Field is a 35 minute drive.
Depending on where you are staying, there may be hotel shuttle transportation available to the event site. Please ask the hotel concierge what options are available before making your reservations.
We are unable to assist attendees with hotel and transportation arrangements.
While we would love for you to bring the students from your youth group, it’s not required to participate in the Youth Pastor Track. Please note you will still need to purchase tickets for each adult attendee.
The Youth Pastor Track is available to guest youth pastors while your students are engaged in community groups with our staff. These sessions are an opportunity to connect with each other and receive valuable behind-the-scenes time with our Gateway Students staff and conference speakers. When it comes time to leave the conference, we want guest youth pastors to feel refreshed, encouraged, and empowered to lead their students like never before! There is no additional cost for participation in the Youth Pastor Track sessions.
There will be no childcare available. Please make outside arrangements for children younger than 7th grade if you plan to attend GWSC.
If you bring 40 or more attendees, you qualify for reserved seating! After you register, we will send you an email to confirm that you would like to take advantage of group seating.
Volunteer registration will open on April 15 to current attendees of Gateway Church. Please go here to register to be a volunteer at Gateway Student Conference.
