Celebrating 10 years!
The Bridge Academy and Community is excited to celebrate its 10 year anniversary this November! Starting as a small seed, the BACC has matured into an authentic ministry that has become a vital part of the Coatesville community. We praise God for giving us this opportunity to serve the neighborhoods and families surrounding our facility.
Over the years, there have been lessons learned. Constantly learning and adjusting. Programs have developed, people have come and go. But one thing remains, God’s faithfulness.
God has worked wonders through this facility, the volunteers, and the students. We are so incredibly thankful for all the volunteers who have ever contributed to the BACC either through service, prayer, or financial support.
We understand that God is the only one who can change people’s hearts. Our strategy is to faithfully live the lives’ God has called us to, provide educational opportunities for at-risk students, and promote mentoring relationships.
Countless lives have been affected by their time spent at the Bridge Academy. We have been witnesses to God’s incredible redeeming power. Volunteers have seen the joy of serving the one true God. Students have witnessed incredible compassion and love that stems from Christ. God is the focus and he deserves all the glory!
Ephesians 2:10 says, “for we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Each one of us are created and called to a specific purpose in life. The great tragedy many students will never reach that purpose. By investing in the youth through mentor relationships, education, and community service, we are helping to break the strongholds that are so deeply rooted. The Bridge Academy is a visible, tangible expression of love in a broken community.
Thank you for taking time out of your day to be a part of the Bridge Academy. We are so blessed to be at this point and pray that the future holds even greater possibilities with God at the center.
