ABOUT US

 

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 ocmmunity 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 beleive 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.

Brad Fink

Lead Pastor

Melanie and I met in college and have been married since 2000. She is the love of my life and the greatest gift God has ever given to me. We have four kids, two teenagers and two younger, and there is never a dull day in the Fink home. Our family loves camping and the outdoors, and my two older boys and I have been section hiking the Appalachian Trail for several years now. Before coming to Cross Bridge in 2013, I served 11 years in the Army Reserves as a Chaplain Assistant while attending college and later while working on my Masters of Divinity. After a deployment to Afghanistan in 2005, I was commissioned as an Air Force Chaplain and served in the Air Force Reserves for ten years while pastoring until my retirement in 2016.
