Our Missions Moto... "Whatever It Takes"

Without fail, every person, who steps away from their regular routine of life to embark on an experience of international Missions, details how God has touched their life in a way that has changed them forever. With that in mind, The Bridge Church has, and will continue to have, opportunities to personally go to places where God will used them to touch the lives of his people all over the world.
These are called short-term Mission Trips... Some Pray... Some Give... Some Go! 


Below you will find some of our past and current opportunities...

The Bridge Church Blog (wordpress.com)

Located in Quito, Ecuador , “Our vision is to make a significant contribution towards providing for the spiritual, physical and educational needs of the many thousands of poor, abused, neglected and homeless children."

Extreme Response also provides family counseling, hygiene classes, education assistance, a weekly kids club and moms club, weekly feeding for night workers and much more.

Pastor Jose and ministry has been so moved by our partnership with them in helping build the Church in this picture from the ground up that they requested permission to rename the church, The Bridge Church of San Carlos. We were honored and of course said yes!

Quito Dump Program...

Extreme Response actually grew out of a small kids’ club in the garbage dump of Quito, Ecuador (also known as the Zambiza Dump).

In June of 1997 the Extreme Response founders began working with the 300+ people that lived and worked right there in the trash. These people gleaned their living by digging through the garbage that flows out of the back of garbage trucks, living in small shacks made from pallets and other   building materials they found in the trash. They survived on what they found to use, eat and sell.

In December of 1997 we began a tradition of hosting a Christmas Party in the Quito Dump with more than 300 people in attendance. On 2011 Extreme Response celebrated our 15th annual party with more than 1900 people.

The dump has changed drastically over the past 15 years, but the people have not. The Zambiza location was permanently closed as a dumping site in 2005 because the landfill was full. The site then became a transfer station. Garbage is now trucked in, dumped in a roofed area, sorted through and then reloaded back into trucks to be taken to a location outside of the city.

In March of 2006, Extreme Response opened the Zambiza Daycare Center & Preschool – over 50 children ages newborn through 5 years now   attend. In December of 2006 a medical clinic opened in conjunction with Hospital VozAndes Quito.

There is so much more we want to do, and with your support, we can continue to help improve the quality of life for these precious people!

Haiti Missions...

About Maniche, Haiti

The Bridge Church is proud to be a sister-church to the Maniche Church led by Pastor Enoch.  Pastor Enoch has served in Maniche for over fifteen years. The Maniche School is one part of the church’s ministry which also includes active ministries for the men, women and youth of the church. Pastor Enoch is responsible for eight satellite churches in the Maniche District; Anadere, Dory, Charette, Lestage, Minet, Morency, Robert and Terre Rouge.

The town of Maniche is in the municipality of the same name, but you won’t find it on a map. It is located in the Southern Peninsula of Haiti. The closest city is Les Cayes, a town and seaport on the Caribbean Sea, with a population of over 70,000 people. Les Cayes is at about 120 miles southwest of the capital Port-au-Prince.

Maniche is located in the interior of the southern peninsula moving northeast from Les Cayes. The land is rugged, hilly or mountainous. It is approximately twenty miles from Les Cayes, but due to the driving conditions, it takes an hour by truck to make the trip to Maniche.

The majority of the 35,000 inhabitants of the Maniche municipality live in the hills and mountains that surround the town. Primarily, the people participate in small-scale marketing. They grow vegetables fruits, sugarcane, rice and corn for the local market.

Hope For Kidz

in Maniche, Haiti...

About the Hopes for Kidz Program...

In Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere, the basic necessities that we take for granted, food, clothing and shelter are a daily struggle for the people.

All Haitian children, who are privileged enough to be able to attend school, must pay for their education. When simple survival is a constant battle for parents, their child’s education, regardless of the young person’s desire, can be beyond their means. As a result, many children are unable to attend school.

In 2010, the Hope for Kidz program was established at the Maniche School to provide more children the opportunity to receive an education. Now, three years later, there are over eighty children in the program and attending the Maniche School with the support of our generous sponsors.

The impact of the program reaches beyond the sponsored children. Hope for Kidz provides all 200 plus students in the school a hot meal every school day. For many of the children, it will be their only meal for the day.

  • Operation Christmas Child...

    The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Through this project, Samaritan’s Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations.

    Since 1993, more than 198 million children in more than 170 countries and territories have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items. The project delivers not only the joy of what, for many kids, is their first gift ever, but also gives them a tangible expression of God’s love.

  • Man Dodo...

    Man Dodo Humanitarian Foundation INC, a 501 (c)(3) registered Non-profit organization with volunteers from all over the United States and Haiti.  The inspiration for Man Dodo Humanitarian Foundation came from the work that Evanne “Man Dodo” Lozama dedicated her life to helping make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate in Haiti.

    They work directly with the Evangelical Baptist Mission of South Haiti (MEBSH). The organization was officially formed in 1936 in Les Cayes when the movement’s leaders invited the non-denominational agency World Team (then West Indies Mission) to open a Bible school.

    The MEBSH operates numerous educational, health and development institutions in Haiti.

  • Syrian Refugees in Austria...

    In 2015 the “Syrian Diaspora” scattered hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees across Europe. The refugees were made up of Christians, Syrian Jews and Sunni Islamists. At first the Austrian government welcomed the refugees, but have since cut benefits and the Syrians are viewed with suspicion and fear by many Austrians. Not only have they had to flee their war-torn homeland, but now they are viewed as hostile in the land that once gave them succor. Many Syrian refugees live in squalid refugee camps, and those lucky enough to find housing live well below the poverty level. The need is great, but what they need most is Jesus, and it is our hope that they will see the Love of Jesus in us.

  • Hurricane Relief in the Bahamas...

    On September 1, 2019, Hurricane Dorian struck the Bahamas as a Category 5 storm with sustained winds of 185 miles an hour. It was the strongest storm ever to hit the Bahamas, at least back to 1851, when data on storms first began to be recorded.

    On Monday, October 14, 2019 we sent our first load of clothing, shoes, work gloves, clothing racks, bedding, and a generator donated by a church member . We also raised $5,000 in offerings from our Bridge family to purchase 2 more generators and send $1,500 for gas. We were able to partner with Pastor Oron B. McPhee of Unity in Christ Church who agreed to set up a supply shop for residents in need.

    On Saturday, October 10, 2019 we sent our 2nd shipment of toiletries, food, water, a water tank along with various other supplies. 

    On November 3, 2019 we launched phase 3 of our support. After partnering with the local church we were able to connect with families in need of school supplies so kids could start preparing to return to school. So, we decided to put together a Christmas Backpack Program. We purchased and filled backpacks with schools supplies and toys for Christmas Gifts. We were able to collect over 200 backpacks! 

  • Voice of the Martyrs...

    The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) is a nonprofit, interdenominational missions organization that serves persecuted Christians around the world. Founded in 1967 by Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand, VOM is dedicated to inspiring believers to deepen their commitment to Christ and to fulfill His Great Commission — no matter the cost.

    International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church is a Sunday set aside in November to remember to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters across the world. When we pray they ask that we pray the Lord grant them endurance and courage in the face of extreme and sometimes fatal persecution of their faith.
