The Bridge

What is The Bridge?

The Bridge is a strategy of the Salvation Army that is geared to engage, involve and retain our Young Adults/College students.

What is the Purpose/Objective of The Bridge?

Our mission is to build intentional relationships through discipleship. Through this program, our hope is to build and nurture intentional relationships through small groups, educational opportunities, mentorship and ministry. We want to empower our young adults and college students by encouraging them on their journey of discovering who they are and embracing their relationship with Christ. Just as Jesus came alongside his disciples, we strive to come alongside our young adults and college students. Our goal for this discipleship program is that the congregation integrates with this mission and adopts a spirit of care and encouragement toward this generation. We are the bridge for our community to experience Christ.
