Our mission is to bring the love of Jesus outside the walls of our church and into the community.
We shouldn't wait for people to join our church in order to share the good news of Jesus. The church should meet people in their mess, brokenness, despair, and serve them with selfless love just as Christ would. Love is an action not just a feeling and people are changed by that action of love and by the Holy Spirit working through believers.
The vision for Bridge Outreach is to have multiple branches of ways to spread the gospel.
We want to minister to the poor on the street, broken families, weak vulnerable children in foster care and saved from trafficking, the forgotten in the jail system, local schools in our area, and the addicted that need chains broken. We can do this all in the mighty name of JESUS. In order to do this we need the body of Christ to rise up and take a role in these areas and to invite others to do the same.
Here are the outreach opportunities we have been able to do so far:
Bridge to Hope - A Transformational House Ministry
We have partnered with Bridge to Hope by sponsoring a mother and baby to have her own apartment as she works through this 1-2yr program to get on her feet. The Bridge to Hope Mentor team is there to show her the love of Jesus, disciple her, care for her and baby's needs, take her to appointments and meetings, bring her to church and bible studies, know her past hurts and hang ups and remind her of the new future she will have in Christ.

Bridging the Gap Urban Outreach
Reaching the lost, Preaching the Gospel to the poor, rescuing women from the life of drugs and prostitution, and planting inner city churches. We partnered with Bridge the Gap Urban Outreach by joining them in their fight against the dark forces of spiritual evil. There are many opportunities to serve here; going to the streets with Beauty for Ashes Prostitution team or the homeless outreach team, donating to the needs of water, food, hygiene, bibles, or giving your time in volunteering at their women's shelter.
