Welcome to The Bridge

We are a warm, friendly, come-as-you-are community of authentic people. We enjoy simple things like blue skies, big smiles, family meals, and firm handshakes. We also relish inspiring music, sporting events, having fun, and honoring God in all that we do.

We are not religious, churchy, or weird—at least we try not to be—but we are passionate about our relationship with God and relish the opportunity to converse about Him. Whether you’re a longstanding follower of Christ, a new Christian, a spiritual seeker, or a doubter, welcome!  Bring your curiosity and questions, along with your doubts, hurts and fears, and let’s meet at “the bridge.”

By the way, we have named our fellowship after Jesus because He is our one and only bridge to God. While the tombs of Confucius, Buddha, and Mohammad are occupied. Jesus’s tomb is still empty. Only Jesus died for our sins, rose from the dead and lives to offer us eternal life. Jesus, alone, is the one name (Acts 4:12), the one way (John 14:6), and the one mediator (1 Timothy 2:5) between each of us and our Heavenly Father.

Ready to cross over to a fresh new, inspiring place? Come join us at “the bridge”.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Values, Mission & Vision

It’s always hard to sum up an entire enterprise in a few words, but here are some of our core values, our mission, and our vision at “The Bridge”.

Our Values Include:

  • Strong, Intelligent, Biblical Teaching
  • Fearless Teach-N-Talk Conversation
  • Short Meaningful Contemporary Worship
  • Family-Integrated Services that include Youth
  • Fun, Encouraging Experiences for Children
  • Radical Welcoming Hospitality
  • Focused Emphasis on Building Manly Men
  • Vibrant Relational Culture and Community

Our Mission: We are Bridge-builders who long to bring together:

  • God and People,
  • Head and Heart,
  • Grace and Truth.

As you know, because our sin splits and separates, it’s so easy to live distant, detached lives. To combat and counter that, we value journeying together in a loving family of faith where we can reconnect, renew, and restore life the way it was intended to be—healthy, happy and whole.

Our Vision: We desire to build bridges in a way that is:

  • Gospel-loving,
  • Bible-believing,
  • Christ-centered,
  • Spirit-empowered, and
  • Relationship-focused.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Our Pastor and Leadership Team

The Bridge is a come-as-you-are community of everyday, real folks governed by a team of servant leaders and led by our hometown pastor–Dave White.

Since graduating from Hart High and UCLA, Dave has invested his life serving others through a number of enterprises.

  • Dave brings the leadership experience that comes from being an NCAA Lead Basketball Referee, CEO, Business Owner, and Founder of his own non-profit.
  • He brings the cultural wisdom that comes from traveling 60 countries of the world, living in four nations, being an International Life Coach, and earning a Ph.D.
  • He brings spiritual insights that come from years as a Missionary, Recovery Counselor, Hospital Chaplain, Christian University Teacher, and Pastoral Shepherd.
  • He brings the relational warmth that comes from being happily married 30 years, enjoying five grown kids, playing with his Dachshund puppies Bo and Blu, and journeying with a band of loyal friends.

Dave’s one of us–a friendly, normal, approachable guy. He loves skimming good books, watching historical documentaries, working out at the gym, and following the Olympic movement.

We think Dave is the best teacher in our valley—smart, practical, and inspiring. Come join our fellowship and make our entire team even better.
