The staff and leadership here at Life Bridge love and pray diligently for the people in the church. We value a team approach to leading the church. Pastor Bob is our Senior Pastor and part of the Elder team which leads Life Bridge. All members of our Elder team are approved through a vote by Life Bridge members. We believe this provides a biblical model of leadership while maintaining a healthy balance of accountability.
