There is ALOT of back story, with alot of intersections, and alot of profound timing, but in the name of avoiding a blovel, I will just hit the high points…
God has been so gracious to The Bridge in our move to Clifton. We have seen changed hearts and lives, a continual affirmation that the step was one toward health in our community, and a continued redemption of the history of our church.
In all of the good, I have continued to feel restless…
For many churches, to replant by moving the entire church 25 minutes away would have been a “destination” move. To be honest, immediately following the move, I felt like it was a destination move.
As the months have gone by I have been able to identify my restlessness…it is very simply that our move to Clifton was nothing more than a step. It wasn’t a destination. I wasn’t the biggest move we will make. And if it is, we are doomed.
That said, The Bridge has decided to make 4 large decisions as next steps in our journey:
1. We have hired Jeff Flowers as our Executive Pastor
2. We have hired Alan Oliver as our Discipleship Pastor
3. We plan on launching 2 new sites over the next 2 years…one will be on the west side of Cincinnati, and the other with either be in Northside, or near Xavier University.
4. We are looking for partners: financial and prayer (and ALOT of both)
If you are interested in partnering with us in any way, shape, or form, please comment below and I will follow up with you
These are enormous steps in the continuing story of The Bridge…steps that we take trusting God’s goodness and grace will direct us
Grace and Peace – Pastor Tim
