Student leaders of The Bridge College Ministry met to discuss their Connect teams and to review their goals, Feb. 17.

College pastor Andrew Reilly is the mentor for all 20 student leaders. His goal for Connect is to bring all students, Christian and non-Christian, together so that they can hangout in an open environment. He said he hopes that this will help non-Christians feel the love of God through Christians.

“Our goal for Connect is to empower dedicated students to use their God given gifts to free guests from all distractions so they can worship God freely; while making every guest feel welcomed, wanted, and included,” Reilly said.

These Connect groups were made to grow the leadership of The Bridge and to reach students. The student leaders said they are excited to share the gospel.

Colton Boyd, mathematics senior, said, “A personal goal for me is to reach as many non-christians out there who many have never heard the gospel, and to just be a friend and love them whether they are a Christian or not.”

Student leader, Lawrence Green, said he wants students to let go of their fears and know that they can go to the Bridge and just have a good time.

“I want students to always feel welcome here. As leaders we want students to know that they can come and be in an atmosphere where they can relax and feel at home,” Green said. “As a college student we all go through different challenges, but I want students to know that they have people here who can relate and help give advice or just pray for them.”

Brooke Broadstreet, dental hygiene sophomore, said she encourages students to come out and just give it a shot.

“For the students that might be hesitant or scared my advice is to just come and check it out, bring a group of friends, or come and meet new ones. There is several ways to get involved, and we are always ready to meet new people,” Broadstreet said.
