OUR HISTORY

Over 60 years ago, a handful of believers felt the Lord leading them to start a church in our area and to pour themselves into helping transform people's lives in this community. They began our church with no building and little resources, only a heart to make a difference locally and globally. 

 

Through the years, there have been many changes - name changes and location changes. Sacrifices were made, including years of rental space worship where our motto was, "if you can find us, you can worship with us." But one thing that has not changed is the heart ot engage our community and the world with the love of Jesus, "helping people move from where they are to where God wants them to be." 

 

God is doing incredible things in and through people at Cross Bridge Church. We believe that you can know God in greater ways, find freedom from what is holding you back, discover the purpose that God has for you, and make a difference in the lives of people around you. We believe that all of that is possible if we do it together. 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is simple. We want to help people move from where they are to where God wants them to be.

Brad Fink

Lead Pastor

 

 

Before coming here in 2013, Brad was a Lead Pastor in Homestead, FL, and Palm Beach Gardens, FL.  Brad attended Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tn. where he met his wife Melanie and graduated with a BA in Pastoral Ministries.  He later received his Master of Divinity (MDiv) from Nazarene Theological Seminary.  Brad served 11 years in the Army Reserves as a Chaplain Assistant while attending college and seminary and deployed to Afghanistan in 2005.  Following that deployment, Brad was commissioned as an Air Force Chaplain and served in the Air Force Reserves until his retirement in 2016.  Brad is passionate about helping people move from where they are to where God wants them to be and believes the Church, like Jesus, should be attractive to people far from God.   Brad & Melanie have four children:  Ben, Ethan, Landen, and Meredith, and there is never a dull moment in the Fink home!
