The Bridge Update
I'm Ben Baker, currently living in Birmingham, married to Johanna and I am Children's Pastor at St John's Church, Harborne. I have been working for the church for the last couple of years giving my time to both the children's and youth ministries, following my university years studying Theology in Nottingham. I have a desire for communicating God's word creatively and boldly, and as well as this playing a key part of my ministry in Birmingham, inevitably it has drawn me into the exciting world of The Bridge UK.
In the few months I've been in post it has been exciting to see some great topics pulled together by the team, covering hard topics such as drinking and drugs, and most recently mental health. It is great that the Bridge is a place where young people can access good quality, sound teaching on things that are not always easily talked about. As a team we will soon be planning out our upcoming topics for the start of 2016 and in the meantime I'm particularly looking forward to our Bible overview that will be our next scripture series.
Please do be praying for us as a team for continuing a growing sense of team spirit and expectation for this new season of the Bridge, for wisdom for choosing article themes and authors to approach and that we can effectively reach the young people who need to hear the message we're bringing.
Thanks for your continued support.
Director of The Bridge
