​​Here's Real Hope for Victory

While serving a long term sentence in a regional jail, Bridge Ministry founder, William Washington, was apprehended by the love of God and found the grace and strength to begin a new life. After overcoming a life of addictive behavior, he began reaching out to those in jail through a community  prayer meeting. Later, he and his wife opened their home to families in their neighborhood and to troubled men who needed help overcoming their addictions.


Since 1996, The Bridge Ministry has been providing a second chance for men who are committed to breaking free from life controlling issues. The majority of men who successfully complete the 18-month program go on to live successful and productive lives.
