Founding Pastors: Bishops Tony & Kathy Miller
Bishop Tony and Kathy Miller founded The Gate Church in 2012. For over 45 years, God used them to birth churches, begin global outreach ministries, and launch Bible colleges throughout the United States. In 1998, they founded Destiny World Inc., a global ministry dedicated to advancing the kingdom of God. Since its beginning, leaders have been equipped in over 92 nations and over 300,000 leaders have been trained face-to-face.
In 2006, Bishop and Pastor Kathy obeyed God’s call to come to Oklahoma City to pastor The Gate Church (formerly Cathedral of Praise World Outreach Center). Through the years, God has changed countless lives and enabled this diverse community to take Christ’s message around the world.
In January 2021, Bishop Tony went to be with our Lord. He left behind a legacy that spans generations and continents. As a spiritual father to many and a pastor to pastors, he impacted an untold amount of lives with the love and heart of the Father. Bishop was one of the clearest prophetic voices, most effective communicators of the gospel, and strongest leaders of a generation. One of his greatest honors from 42 years of ministry was to found and pastor The Gate Church in Oklahoma City. He was passionate about seeing the city transformed through the love and power of Jesus.
After Bishop’s passing, Pastor Kathy assumed leadership of The Gate Church. Having trained and released worship leaders throughout her life, her passion to pursue the presence of God led The Gate Church to become a life-giving, Spirit-filled congregation of multi-cultural, multi-generational believers who are committed to hosting God’s presence.
In 2022, Pastor Kathy transitioned the position of Lead Pastor to her son-in-law and daughter, Pastors Jordan and Holly Roberts. Pastor Kathy continues to follow her heart which beats for city transformation and leadership development. As founder of CityReach, KingsGate Child Development Center, KingsGate College, and Destiny Fellowship of Churches and Ministries, she is passionate about seeing people of all ages empowered to fulfill their purpose.
Kathy loves her family and enjoys vacationing with her three daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren. She also enjoys trying new restaurants, watching movies, and going on cruises when she can. She is an avid Oklahoma City Thunder Fan.
