As a ministry from within the local church, The Pivot exists to give particular care to some of the needs of people between ages 18 and 25. We want to speak with biblical relevance to both the opportunities and the challenges that face us in this season of our lives. We want to see Christians become more passionate about God and we want non-Christians to see our lives, hear the gospel, and get captured by a vision of the greatness of God! We also want to see Christians come full circle – getting plugged into a solid local church and investing themselves in its mission.
If you'd like to check us out, there are a few different gatherings you can jump into:
In the spring and fall, as our church gathers in Small Groups, we offer a Pivot Small Group for 18-25 year olds. In them, we seek to build meaningful friendships as we gather to share a meal & fellowship, discuss God's Word and how it particularly applies to this crucial season of life, and minister to one another through prayer.
About once per month, we plan a fun outing/hangout event for us to have space to laugh and enjoy life together.
Retreats & Conferences
- Fall Retreat | Near the beginning of each school year we get away to refocus our attention on the Lord, His Word, and Prayer. Fall Retreat is usually scheduled the last weekend of September
- CROSS 2019 | A conference for 18-25 yr olds that takes place in Louisville, KY Jan 2-5, 2019.
Contact our ministry leader Erik Schmaltz for more info about any of our upcoming small groups or events. We'd love for you to join us!
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 of Lakeview Christian Center 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.
If you are currently at Tulane or will be in the near future, we'd love for you to visit us on campus! Contact our ministry leader David Batten for more info.
