About the Bridge

The Bridge exists to connect people to God, each other, and the world. Our vision can be summed up like this: Connect. Grow. Go.
At The Bridge, we see growth as an intentional thing. That’s why when you attend The Bridge, you will find truth, straight from God’s Word, encouraging community, and opportunities to serve.
No matter where you may be on life’s journey, we all have a story to tell. At The Bridge, we believe that God wants to use your story to connect others to His love and grace. That is why at The Bridge, we’re intentional about connecting with people who are outside of the family of God.


Everyday, we all interact with people who are just an invite away from a life-changing encounter with Jesus.

Meet the Bradshaws

Dave-Erin_03Dave and his wife Erin met while attending Christian Campus House at Eastern Illinois University, and got married a few years after graduating. Shortly after, they became youth pastors at New Beginnings Church in Fairfield, IL where they have ministered for the past 6 years.


They have two awesome little boys, Hank (3) and Silas (10 months).  Dave and Erin are dedicated to showing people the love of Jesus as well as helping them become fully committed followers of Christ.


Dave is a passionate leader who aims to glorify God in all that he does. His heart is that The Bridge will bring hope by humbly serving the people of Greenville as the hands and feet of Christ. In his free time, Dave loves to hunt and watch Cardinal Baseball. Erin is passionate about seeing women grow to know Jesus and spends much of her time loving on her boys and co-laboring with Dave to help The Bridge launch successfully. When she is not busy with one of the above, she loves to have  coffee with friends, shop, take pictures of her kids, travel, and browse Pinterest.
