Our mission is to connect people to: 

  • Jesus Christ
  • Each Other
  • God's purposes for their lives

Our mission influences everything we do at BridgeWay, from every ministry we launch to every event we offer. If it isn't adhering to the mission God has given us, we don't pursue it


To ignite a movement of Radically Loving, Culturally Relevant, Rapidly Reproducing Churches sharing hope throughout the world.



BridgeWay believes we are a  family and family is what God is all about.  

  • We are empowered to not only plant but be planted in our homes, communities, and beyond.
  • We do not seek to be large in numbers, but mighty in Christ!  
  • We are empowered to connect. We connect by spreading the Gospel across Central Illinois and beyond through a network of new churches, campuses, and connects groups.  

Two Fold Strategy

  • To missionally impact 10% of the unchurched population of Tazewell and surrounding counties through a sprawling network of BridgeWay campuses
  • To influence and impact 100 church plants locally, nationally, and globally by 2030.
