Why We Love This Opportunity
This exciting opportunity is at a church with a fresh perspective and genuine desire to reach The Central Valley of CA for Christ. Bridge Church of Fresno has a welcoming campus and a passion for reaching those who do not know the Lord. Their Lead Pastor, Andrew, leads with innovation and fun. Bridge Kids and the staff of Bridge church are excited to welcome this new leader to the team.
About This Organization
God has strategically used the people of Bridge Church to be a blessing to the people of Fresno since their start in 1959. In September of 2016, Pastor Andrew Smith, and his wife, Megan, moved to Fresno so Andrew could fill the role of Lead Pastor of Bridge Church. 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!” Bridge Church is seeing new, young families joining the church and was reaching over 1,300 people before COVID on the weekends.
Bridge Church is located in California’s Central Valley. Fresno is conveniently located only a few hours from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, the Pacific Ocean, 45 minutes from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and only one hour from Yosemite National Park. Bridge Church represents the cultural diversity of its surrounding community.
The Kids Pastor at Bridge Church is responsible for the oversight and development of staff and ministry initiatives for the Kids Ministry areas of the church for children birth through 5th grade. The role of the Children’s Pastor reports to the Executive Pastor. This next leader of Bridge Kids will be welcomed by a dedicated and excited group of volunteers.
Leadership development, relational connection, and a passion for the community will need to be at the heart of this leader. The current children’s ministry mission and philosophy was developed to see a child graduate from 6th grade having had the opportunities to learn to Love God, Live Truth, Learn to walk through life with friends, and Serve their World. What an awesome opportunity ahead to help kids find and follow Jesus…for life!
