ANSWERING THE CALL
We know that we can have an eternal impact on the Kingdom when we answer the call to leadership.
Through the Bridge Residency, we are seeking motivated, faith-filled people who are eager to advance in their leadership and see the gospel move through our city, state, nation, and world.
A year-long residency at The Bridge is an opportunity for you to join our team, serve the church and community, immerse yourself in a gospel culture, and grow in your gifts as you answer your calling to ministry!
We believe before we do anything for Jesus, we must first seek to be with him. Residents will receive training and coaching in their spiritual growth, intentional discipleship, personal calling to ministry, staff values and church culture.
PRACTICAL & THEOLOGICAL
Residents will have an intentional focus on theological and practical discipleship that will develop them to become like Jesus. This will include trainings, group studies, readings and discussions.
MINISTRY & LEADERSHIP
We believe that our gifts and talents are not meant to be kept to ourselves but to be used to glorify God and make a difference in our church, city, community and around the world! Residents will not only get to experience and lead in hands-on ministry, but they will be coached by a specialist in their specific area of ministry to grow and develop tips and tools for effective ministry.

HEAR FROM OTHERS
We're honored to have walked alongside over 25 leaders since 2017 as they discovered their callings to ministry.
“The Bridge Residency has been an incredible learning opportunity far beyond the practicalities of ministry. Working at The Bridge and with this staff, they push me to grow each day both in ministry and leadership. Not to mention it is a ton of fun! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone even thinking God might call them to ministry!”
Hannah, Bridge Kids Resident
