About Us

The Bridges For Youth Centers are a non-denominational ministry to kids that was founded in 1994 in Springfield, Missouri.     We operate all 6 Bridges centers in Springfield, Marshfield and Strafford through faith in God. We share God’s good news and evangelize and disciple kids, because we know the truth and that the truth will set you free and bring the hope of salvation.  We are funded through donations, love indiscriminately and serve kids 6 to 17, who are registered and abide by  required youth center rules and guidelines. Disrespect for adults or other kids is not tolerated.  Everyone makes mistakes and has bad days and we practice forgiveness and always go the extra mile to restore relationships , so kids can continue to attend and grow.  

We Believe!

There is one God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
That the Bible is God's only written revelation to man, and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative and without error in the original manuscripts.
In the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us and His return to earth in power and glory.
In the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of new birth in unbelievers and indwells believers, enabling them to live Godly lives.
That man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. Only through faith and trusting in Christ alone for salvation, which was made possible by His death and resurrection, can that alienation be removed.
