Gateway Co-Operative Credit Union

Gateway Co-Operative Credit Union

About Us

History

As Gateway Assembly continued to experience growth and progress, the idea of establishing its own Credit Union was developed by Pastor Adrian Banfield.  The members of the Assembly welcomed and embraced the opportunity; and In December 2005, Gateway Cooperative Credit Union was registered and began operations.

From the period 2006-2008, Gateway Co-operative Credit Union operated through the assistance of volunteers.  Throughout the period, 2009-2011 one of the volunteers was made responsible for posting daily transactions.  In 2012, as the Credit Union continued growing, another volunteer joined the team to further assist with entering those transactions.  Further advancement, led to the hiring of an External Accountant during the period 2012-2014.

In 2015, the Credit Union hired an Assistant Manager, its first employee, to perform the accounting functions.  The Assistant Manager replaced the External Account hired in 2012.  In June 2016, the Credit Union hired its second employee, an Accounts Clerk, so that its operation could be extended from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Fridays.
