Thank you for taking the time to visit us today! We are glad you stopped in. It is our hope that you feel welcome and comfortable when you visit us. By all means feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you might have. Again, thank you, and welcome!
Our mission is central to everything that we do. We strive to connect people to Jesus Christ, each other, and to God's purposes for their lives.
Our core values consist of 3 things that we believe to be absolutely essential to who God has created us to be at Bridgeway. They are gospel saturation, local community transformation, and church multiplication.
Looking to learn a little bit more about who we are? Awesome, we'd love to help.
Have any questions or concerns? Give us a shout, we'd love to hear from you.
MINISTRY TEAM - Centralized Staff
Pastor Jeff has been with Bridgeway for just over 2 years now; however, we feel like we have known him forever. He loves Jesus, and is an amazing teacher. He is often found reading, listening to Ted Talks, and spending time with family.
Kevin serves as the worship pastor and European church plant resident. He has been playing in bands and mixing audio for 31 years and brings this talent and experience into Bridgeway everyday.
Linsy serves as both the family ministries pastor and youth pastor. She is extremely passionate about preaching the Gospel to children and teens.
Nate serves as the associate pastor for Bridgeway. He has attended Bridgeway since 2005 and was even a part of one of the church plants that Bridgeway launched.
5 Things We Do
Our Weekend Worship Experiences are often the initial starting point for most of those that call Bridgway home. We currently have 4 services across 2 campuses. Saturday Night at 5:30pm and Sunday Morning at 9:00am and 11:00am at the Pekin Campus. Sunday Morning at 11am at the Marquette Heights Campus All services are identical.
Connect Groups are the backbone of Bridgeway. These are groups that meet in homes and at the Pekin Campus throughout the week to help you find a place to connect with new friends.
WE REACH OUT
Glocal (global and local) is essential for Bridgway. Currently we are working with Wilson Intermediate School and the Pekin Outreach Initiative in a backpack feeding program. We also work hard to cross ministry bridges world wide through support of missions and through crisis intervention.
WE LOVE ON KIDS AND YOUTH
Your Kids Matter! Bridgeways main arena for ministry to children happens during our Worship Experiences. We use a curriculum called Orange and tailor lessons for age specific ministry. Your teens will have a place to connect on Wednesday Nights at the Marquette Heights Campus and the Sander's Center in North Pekin.
WE DEVELOP VOLUNTEERS AND LEADERS
Bridgeway works to equip people to live out their purposes with God. We encourage involvement in ministry and have developed an apprentice program to assist with development. One Saturday a month we gather as Volunteers and Leaders for a time of vision, training, and coordination.

All throughout scripture we read that Jesus followers are invited into a life of giving thanks in all circumstances. Do you find it hard to give thanks in the midst of discouragement, pain, and trial? Do you need a fresh perspective on thanksgiving as a way of life, and not just a holiday? Journey with Bridgeway for the entire month of November as we learn about how Jesus helps us cultivate an attitude of gratitude.
