Welcome to Gateway to Agape - a choir, a community, a movement.

What started as a funky little rock and soul choir in 2008 has grown into a vibrant community of positive people intent on spreading a message of unconditional love and personal empowerment. Agape (pronounced "ah-gah-pay") is a Greek word that stands for "unconditional love."

Think of Gateway to Agape as a doorway to love and acceptance - qualities that all people need now more than ever.

We are on a mission to heal and uplift people in the St. Louis area and beyond through music, educational events, community service, spiritual growth, and more. Some of the groups we serve include children and teens in need of love, the elderly, and those coping with physical and financial challenges. We are multicultural and nondenominational. We claim no religion while embracing and accepting all spiritual paths and cultural backgrounds. No matter who you are or where you're from, you are welcome here!

Pooki Lee, Founder and President

Join Us at Loaves and Fishes on Nov 13

It’s November! What a wonderful time of the year! Actually, it is my favorite time of the year! During the month of November we celebrate Thanksgiving! And there are so many things to be thankful for.

This year I am very grateful for the expansion of Gateway to Agape! Since the approval of our 501(c)(3) status in August, we have begun to clarify our mission and our vision for the future of the GTA movement. We are expanding our opportunities for service beyond the choir and invite others to come and share in the vision that is unfolding!

Now, you don’t have to sing with the choir to be a part of Gateway to Agape! As we expand the vision of Gateway to Agape, we are infused with new energy! Vibrant, Dynamic, Energized and Enthusiastic! Whew!

On Tuesday, November 13, from 10 AM to 3 PM, Gateway to Agape will volunteer at Loaves and Fishes, a local nonprofit which helps 300 families this time of year with their food pantry and shelter.

We will be helping put together food baskets. If you would like to join GTA and be a part of the Agape Angels, we invite you! Just reach out to me by email at Pooki@GatewayToAgape.org and I will fill you in on all the details. You don't have to be available the whole time. Just let me know what works for you!

I would love to share in the spirit of giving in this powerful way!
