God is moving powerfully among the youth of our city and around the globe, and Bridge Street Ministries is responding to the call to be part of the movement. Our youth discipleship initiatives seek to bridge local youth groups to the streets in Grand Rapids. We have several events to help youth pastors and their students build real relationships with the people of the West Side neighborhood. We provide space to worship Jesus with other passionate young people through song and service, and consistently challenge youth to live and proclaim the gospel in their own contexts. Our strategy is to create a greenhouse environment in which young people are discipled and empowered to make disciples.
