The Purposes of The Bridge can best be expressed via the acrostic for the word "bridge" and directly tie into the five purposes of the Church.
The BRIDGE EXISTS TO HELP STUDENTS:
Build meaningful relationships. (Fellowship)
Reach out to those who don't know Jesus. (Evangelism)
Identify God's purpose for their lives. (Discipleship)
Discover and using thier God-given gifts. (Ministry)
Grow in order to become more like Christ. (Discipleship)
Embrace God's presence. (Worship)
Our purposes are the methods that we use to achieve our mission and reach our vision. They are the tools for how we do what we do. We gauge our success as a ministry and as a family on these criteria. If you are experiencing some or, even better, all of these, then we are doing what we are supposed to be doing.
