John and Ruth Filler are Executive Overseers and founders of Gateway International in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. They have been in active ministry over 40 years ranging from from worship ministry, youth pastors, senior pastors of a local church to founders and overseers of apostolic ministry and business networks with global awareness and involvement. In these past 4 decades they have been a part of, as well as, eye witnesses to huge paradigm shifts that are occurring in the Church.

Their hearts are to disciple true sons of God who will discover their authentic identity - fully living and thriving from an open-heaven, Kingdom- minded lifestyle through intimacy with the Father. A people, completely unleashed in blissful pursuit!
