The Bridge Christian Ministry
College is a pivotal time in our lives. In many ways, your experience in college sets the trajectory for the rest of your life. Throughout your time in college, you will make important decisions, discover who you truly are, and ask big questions about purpose, meaning, reality, and significance. College is also a challenging time for many Christian students. While in college, you will face more temptations than ever before, your faith will be challenged more than ever before, and you will have more free time than ever before. Because of these factors, most Christians just barely survive or leave the faith altogether.
The Bridge is a Christian college ministry on Tulane University's campus and exists to help college students thrive in college and become the kind of men and women God created them to be. We are here to respect, care for, and extend grace to college students in any way we can. God has overwhelmed us with His love and forgiveness, and we simply want many others to be overwhelmed as well. More than just a student organization, The Bridge is a family and a place to call your “home away from home.” It’s a place where you can safely explore who Jesus really is, why He came, and what it means to follow Him.
We Believe God Established The Bridge
To Connect Every Student To Their True Purpose In Life:
Knowing Jesus and Making Jesus Known
In Philippians 3:7-8 we read, “But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.” Christians are men and women who don’t just merely know facts about Jesus, but are those who know Jesus Himself. Knowing Jesus isn’t merely an extracurricular activity to our discipleship, it is our discipleship. So here at The Bridge, we press on to know Jesus, theologically, biblically, & personally.
Making Jesus Known
When we truly come to know Jesus, we discover he wants others to come to know Him too (Matthew 28:18-20). In other words, making Jesus known on campus is not only critical to our mission, but it’s at the very heart of Jesus’ mission as well (Acts 1:8). We want to see every student to have an opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to see every student worshipping Jesus everyday. So here at The Bridge, we make Jesus known by inviting others to know Jesus, investing in disciple-making relationships, and increasing disciple-makers on campus.
