Elder Update

We want to say right up front, we know that this transition is on the top of your mind right now and it might feel like you have very little sense in where the church is going. That is not because we are purposefully holding anything back. We also don't want to get ahead of our skis and announce something that is not fully formed that we will have to backpedal on later.

We have decided to use this page on the website to make sure you have a place to get the latest information. Sometimes we will have big updates and other times we won't have much to report. But we definitely want to keep you all in the loop.

The elders and staff have been meeting and discussing how this could be a great opportunity.

We are asking questions like, "How we can best love our community and invite them into a life-changing relationship with Jesus through kids, students, and adult ministries? How do we meet the challenges and anticipate future opportunities as we move forward?" Those conversations have been fruitful. We are really excited about where they have led. And because of that we anticipate that we will have a job description for the open position soon.

We are not done working out all the details but we can say that:

  1. God is working in this place. Our giving has been ahead of budget this fiscal year (August 2023-July 2024). We are in a great position financially to move forward with another full time ministry position.
  2. We anticipate that the person we bring in will be a part of the teaching team and will work alongside the current ministry team to reinvigorate the areas of discipleship and outreach.
  3. You all have been amazing through this by offering words of encouragement to the leaders and really letting us know that you have our backs. This church is in a great place and it is because of you. We can't say it enough, you all have been amazing.

Thank you for being patient with us as we take our time to navigate this transition well together. If you have any questions, please let us know by sending an email to info@bridgetownchurch.com or by filling out the form below.
