MISSIONS

As a church, Bridgeway exists to connect people with to the heart of God, no matter where they are. We are eager to see the Kingdom of God advance in loving and strategic expressions of the Gospel around the world. We do this by supporting and partnering with the families and ministries with which God has connected us.

We are currently connected to 8 families on 5 continents. They are all wonderful people who have a specific passion and mission: to reach the lost and disciple those who are young in their faith, in the communities in which they live. As a church family, we are delighted to support and serve these missionaries in various ways such as consistent relationship, persistent prayer and sacrificial giving.

Current Short-Term Missions Partners

Bridgeway Church is excited to partner with these individuals and families as they embark on a journey to bring the Kingdom of God and His loving kindness to people who are in need of an encounter with the Living God. Please consider supporting them in prayer or finances.

The Danner Family - Taiwan

The Danner Family with OneBody International

missions_dannerfamilyClay and Rhonda felt a call to minister in Taiwan from their first time living and ministering there back in 1999. Since then, they have waited patiently and the Lord began to make the path clear to leave the States, starting in early 2015. After starting their ministry, OneBody International, the Danners made preparations to go back to Taiwan and have been there since early 2016. Clay and Rhonda are reconnecting with old friends and making new ones as they are getting settled into Taipei. They see themselves as a family on mission, with their daughters already getting in on sharing: the truth of Jesus, the love of the Father and prayer for people in need.

The Danners are ministering through:

  • Following connections with churches and individuals to disciple people
  • Having people in their home for meals, fun, worship, and prayer
  • Praying for and blessing people in their community
  • Being led by Father to see His Kingdom come, and lives and communities changed
