The Bridge

Communications Director
The Bridge

Fresno, California
The staff culture at The Bridge is a healthy, fun environment where people don’t take themselves too seriously, but take God very seriously. Work is accomplished with a focus on grace, excellence, and progression, three of The Bridge’s key cultural values.

Pastor Andrew Smith is gracious, strong and a strategic visionary. The staff is given much freedom and flexibility, as long as they are faithful, productive and pursuing excellence in all they do.

The Bridge is excited to welcome, invest in, and empower the Communications Director in a collaborative working environment with plenty of room to explore new things without fear of failure. This is a great time to become part of God’s story at The Bridge Church!

 

Church Description *

The Evangelical Free Church of Fresno began in 1949 as a prayer meeting in a home. As the prayer meeting continued to grow, the small group realized a church building was in order. The first church building was established in 1950.

The Evangelical Free Church of Fresno was renamed The Bridge in 2006, as a reflection of their desire to be a useful connection point for people to find Jesus Christ and follow him fully. It is their hope that every person who connects with The Bridge will become a growing disciple of Christ, serving and reaching others.

In their 70 years of history, God has strategically used The Bridge to be a blessing to the people of Fresno. In 2016, Pastor Andrew Smith, and his family moved to Fresno so Andrew could fill the role of Lead Pastor.

Andrew brought with him a fresh perspective and new vision to not only reach the people of Fresno but to reach the whole region and become “a church for the valley helping people discover and follow Jesus!” The Bridge is seeing new, young families joining the church and is reaching over 1,300 people on the weekends.
