David joined the staff at The Bridge in July 2017 after serving as a Church Planter, Pastor, and Church Planting Catalyst in Philadelphia, PA for 18 years. David is responsible for helping The Bridge family connect with each other and the community, working with our Life Groups and ministry leaders.
He married his wonderful wife Kelly in 1990, and they have three daughters: Erin, Allison, and Emily. David and Kelly were both raised in Missouri and graduated from Southwest Missouri State University (it will always be SMSU to them). He loves almost all sports, traveling, and eating at small family owned restaurants (especially Mexican and BBQ!).
Rick and his wife, Jenny, live in Springfield. They have three adult children and two grandkids. They have been involved in youth ministry for over 20 years and love connecting with teenagers. They love helping them discover who they are in Christ and follow His plan for their lives.
In their spare time, they like to go on walks, get coffee, play games, eat out, and lead marriage retreats.
Isaac joined the Bridge staff earlier this year. We are excited to have him on staff and are eager to see his passion for discipleship at work in our church.
