This month, Patrick Kruse and Eddie Lewis moved into the East Side! Patrick is a former naval officer who will be bi-vocational with his work in the neighborhood and his other job and Eddie is a young man who has been mentored by Chris for the past year. While this new East Side location is temporary, it is a huge step towards getting more involved in the community. The guys moved into the top floor of a duplex located off of Arden Avenue and want their home to be the BridgeBuilder’s ministry house while the future ministry house is being renovated.

H.I.S. BridgeBuilders believes that the gospel of the kingdom is a redemptive reality that extends to the development of the whole person: his economic good, his spiritual growth in obedience to Jesus Christ, and his creative gifts applied in service to others. We refer to this as human flourishing. As the for-profit subsidiary of H.I.S. BridgeBuilders, The Good-Works Company seeks to expand the ministry’s impact upon the economically and socially disadvantaged through the provision of meaningful employment as a means of poverty alleviation, restoration of human dignity and the promotion of flourishing communities. In addition, we also connect inner-city residents with other outside employers through Community Employment Services.(Learn More)
H.I.S. BridgeBuilders works to unite communities by engaging residents in Bible study, worship, fellowship, and service. Children and families find many helpful resources at our community centers, and our new church plants will help to unite neighborhoods across America in service to God.(Learn More)
