College & Young Adults

B.R.I.D.G.E. Ministry is dedicated to developing the hearts and minds of college students in and around the Ada area.  Often in our culture it is easy to gain more and more knowledge without experiencing its truth at a deeper level.  Our desire is to help students explore their faith openly and honestly so their joy will be full and their growth in understanding God’s love and His will for their life will be deep.

When students experience true spiritual growth they will desire to make a difference on their campus, in their family and with their friends.  It is our hope that through your involvement with our community of students you will begin to see genuine spiritual growth and have a desire to take your walk to a whole new level where together we can begin fulfilling the purpose He has established for each of our lives.

Come explore our ministry and we will do our best to help you discover where you fit into our dynamic community of believers.

B.R.I.D.G.E. is a ministry for students seeking a place to call home at ECU.  We strive to create a safe environment for students to learn, ask challenging questions about their faith and address the often deep issues students struggle with as a result of the culture in which they have been raised.  Our ministry allows students to not only feel at home, but to make a difference at ECU, in the community and around the world by using their God-given gifts and talents.  Investigate the rest of our site and check out our upcoming events.  We would be happy to help you investigate whether this is your place to connect with believers striving to live an exciting Christian life without compromise.  If you have questions and would like to talk to a student or staff call 580-332-4121.
