Did you know that 58% of the world's population, or 4.2 billion people, do not have access to or have not heard the message of Jesus Christ? At Bridgeway, we believe the local church is the hope of the world; therefore, our philosophy of International Missions is to identify and partner with indigenous churches, organizations, and missionaries that are committed to bringing the Gospel to unreached communities. We have developed five countries of focus for our International Missions efforts, listed below.
In Mexico, Bridgeway partners wtih local missionaries in Cuna Maya, Mexico which is located just outside the city of Cancun. Through those partnerships, we focus on serving local pastors, families, children, and schools.
Bridgeway has partnered with Compassion International to support hundreds of child sponsorships throughout the country of Peru. In the city of Chiclayo, Peru, we funded a new church plant where children and their families receive food, education, medical attention, and spiritual development through Compassion International.
In Haiti, Bridgeway's partnership with Grace International in Port au Prince and Beyond All Boundaries International in Gonaives, has provided sustainable spiritual and physical support to communities in need. Through these organizations, Bridgeway focuses on serving children, building leadership, and providing medical support.
Worshipping Together in Haiti
"...Then, without microphones and accompanied only by the keyboard, these youth began to worship the Lord. Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb, they sang. It was the most beautiful sound I’ve ever heard. I was so deeply blessed by their voices and their faith, and it was a gift to be able to worship together with brothers and sisters from Haiti."
Bridgeway is dedicated to supporting reconciliation, education, and leadership development efforts through the creation of relationships with communities in Kenya. Teams have been working in a small town in Western Kenya since 2004. The Bridgeway Hope Academy, a school located in Webuye, Kenya, coordinates reconciliation sessions and leadership conferences throughout the Webuye region. Further, we are building partnerships in Nairobi, Kenya through our missionary partners and local church relationships.
In Ethiopia, Bridgeway currently maintains hundreds of Compassion International child sponsorships throughout the country, while exploring opportunities of new partnerships.
