Pastor Gilbert Rolle Sr and his wife Yvette Rolle host 'A Night of Celebration' on Friday from 8pm to 11pm. Then on Sunday, a special 'Legacy Preserved' service will be held at the church at 3pm. The Gateway Outreach Ministry was started by Pastor Rolle and his wife 20 years ago. They expanded into their own church building after operating out of a hotel conference space for a few years. They then also built a private school on the island and a state-of-the-art gym that hosts basketball games for local and international tournaments. Upon their retirement, the ministry and school was passed on to their son Gilbert Rolle Jr and his wife Anna, and second son Guido Rolle.
