"Signing for the Lamb" Our Sign Language Ministry - Our teenagers and young adults are learning to sign gospel songs for special occasions at our church. The name was created after one of Gateway's favorite gospel singers, Clayton Inman, who watched our girls sign one of his songs, encouraged the group to come up with a name. The group name is "Signing for the Lamb".
