MEET THE TEAM
Meet The Bridge's pastoral team who week in, week out seek to lovingly lead and walk alongside those who call The Bridge home, while also casting vision for how to serve the greater community. These are the people who lead the charge and devote their lives to pastoring The Bridge: it's people, midweek ministries, and gatherings on Sundays.
