Leadership

Our leadership structure engages strong leaders in three distinct areas of ministry ownership. From staff to operators to overseers, we activate our leaders to take their areas of ministry to the next level, with guidance and accountability along the way.

Staff

Our staff takes ground-level ownership of their area of ministry, putting in the day-to-day work to keep every program and event at The Bridge functioning at its best!

Operators

Every ministry at The Bridge has an operator - a volunteer ministry leader who provides guidance, support, and prayerful leadership over that specific area of ministry.

Overseers

Our overseers are powerful, spirit-filled leaders who serve as spiritual council over the church. They provide leadership and accountability to ministry and pastoral staff.

Bridge Staff

Our Bridge staff is a group of energetic, passionate people who are crazy about ministry at this church. Click on a bio to read more about each person, and to find contact information if you want to connect further.
