M28 Ministries, Bridge House is a Missions opportunity for churches and individuals to get “On Mission” without travel. Jesus tells us what we are to do until His return in, Matthew 28:19-20 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you”. This is the foundation of every mission trip taken anywhere in the world! Somehow, it seems we have mistaken the word GO to mean go somewhere else, then make disciples, baptize them and teach them. The word GO dose not mean go some where other than where you are. Yes, Jesus says, “of all nations” but too often we have taken that to mean to do missions work we need to go somewhere other than home to do it. While it is important to take the good news of Jesus Christ all over the world, it is important that we start in our own back yards. The America we see today has lost its way, largely because the church allowed “missions” to be viewed as an adventurous traveling opportunity to see the world and share the gospel along the way. We must turn this around and get back to the basics. The word GO does not mean to go somewhere else, it means to START! Start sharing the good new of Jesus Christ right where you are in your own back yards!
At TBH we look for every opportunity the Lord gives us to share the gospel and lead the lost to Christ.
Prayer is a great way we can be a vessel for the Holy Spirit to speak to hurting people. At TBH we look for hurting people and ask if we can pray with them. They are usually surprised that anyone would care enough to pray for them, then quickly say YES please!
At TBH we look forward to fellowshipping with all that come. Often these times are a rare encounter for those we serve, to experience the love and compassion of Christ.
For many of the people we serve at TBH the meal we provide them will be the only food they get. Jesus often fed the people with physical nurshiment before He fed the spiritually.
Our clothing ministry has helped hundreds of people with lightly worn clothes which is a huge blessing to those with large families.
We are blessed some of the best worship music, led by some amazing worship leaders from our area. It is our goal to have live worshp music at all TBH ministry activities.
We have adult bible studies for everyone at TBH. Men’s, women’s and combined bible studies meeting on different days of the week.
Our ministry started with a focus on the homeless when we met in the park, that hasn’t changed. We work with homeless every day with food, coffee and lots of love. It is one of our greatest joys when we see the change that only Christ can bring happen in those that we serve.
The families we serve at TBH have tough lives. This is especially true for the children. We can show the children that Jesus loves them through bible stories and craft projects.

"We must serve the Lord with an eternal focus. If it doesn’t matter forever then it doesn’t matter! As one body we can do anything! Let’s come together and focus on what we can do and leave the rest to God!" Jeff Henderson
