What is Orion's Gate? Orion's Gate is the ministry name for Jim Pappas and team; a small audio/video/printed-word production team specializing in the creation of character-building audio dramatizations, videos, books and plays. To learn more about Jim CLICK HERE.
What does the name Orion's Gate mean? The name Orion's Gate comes from the nature of the Orion constellation itself. In its midst is a vast corridor over a thousand light years wide which leads into the heart of Orion. At its end there are dense clouds billion of miles across that hide an incredible source of brilliant light of unknown origin. It is believed by some that hidden behind the vast cloud formations of Orion lies heaven itself. If so, then anyone that teaches people how to prepare themselves to live in heaven becomes a gateway to eternity. Since this is our goal we have named ourselves "Orion's Gate" and our chief desire is to be "a doorway to forever."

Who was John Bunyan? John Bunyan was a tinker (blacksmith or sheet metal worker in today's terms) who lived in a small town in England named Elstow. The nearest large town was called Bedford. John became a follower of Jesus Christ as a young man and his talent for preaching and teaching soon made him a very popular minister. This did not set well with other ministers who were losing members to John's preaching and, through their influence, he soon found himself in jail for teaching people about Jesus. His story is a fascinating one. You can learn more by CLICKING HERE.
