Bridge was created because we are committed to reaching tweens with the Gospel. To do this, it requires a team effort from church leaders like you. It’s not just about children’s ministry leaders owning this critical age group. It’s not just about student ministry leaders leading this age group. We must work together.

Bridge is an experience designed for you to learn from some of the most influential voices, but it is most importantly a place for intentional conversation…a place where vision and practical steps forward combine to help propel your ministry to tweens forward.

This experience is designed to inspire conversation and a renewed commitment to build a bridge for the sake of tweens in your faith community.

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” – 2 Corinthians 5:18-20a (NIV)
