The Bridge Church

Worship Arts Director



Why I Love This Opportunity

Becky Ykema


The Bridge is a brave and loving community committed to kingdom impact within the Des Moines region. Their space has been designed not only for powerful multigenerational worship on Sundays and hosting youth programming, refugee study groups, and recovery groups throughout the week.

About This Organization

The Bridge (formerly Meredith Drive) is a vibrant community just outside the city of Des Moines. The Bridge is a part of the Reformed Church in America. They have a thriving preschool on campus and maximize their space for missional impact throughout the week.

After a year-long discernment process, The Bridge has made the decision to be welcoming to those who may find themselves in the LGBTQIA+ community. While The Bridge will not officiate weddings, folks of this community can become Christ-followers and welcomed members and participants within the community.

A candidate who can hold space in the middle to honor the scripture and honor God’s children will find a beautiful and one-of-a-kind place to minister and call home
