Maybe you have noticed that our staff is far too small for this size church. In a growing church, we clearly are playing some catch up. Admittedly we are understaffed.

But we are also very strategic about keeping our staff small. Not only is it good stewardship, but kingdom work was never intended to be done exclusively by paid professionals. In fact, being on the payroll of a church changes everything about your approach to ministry. As great as it is, there is a whole segment of this community that instantly becomes inaccessible when you work for a church. Sad but true. But this is also why some very key ministries here at Bridgeway are led by volunteers. The volunteer leader is the life blood of ministry at Bridgeway and we believe this is how it's supposed to be!
