About Us

We have been running the Bridges for Youth program since 1994 and now have 5 Bridges locations  in Springfield and Marshfield,  Missouri.

The centers are operated and dependent on donations from people in the community.

1549467_10151833406781104_1638035977_nOur centers are fun and free for ages 6-18. We are operated on Christian principles. Short devotions are presented every day, along with praise and prayer request time. A positive and ongoing support system for kids and parents alike.

Statement of Faith

1. We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
2. We believe that the Bible is God’s only written revelation to man, and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative and without error in the original manuscripts.
3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us and His return to earth in power and glory.
4. We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of new birth in unbelievers and indwells believers, enabling them to live Godly lives.
5. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. Only through faith and trusting  in Christ alone for salvation, which was made possible by His death and resurrection, can that alienation be removed.
