• Refugee work

    One of our continual prayers at LifeBridge is that God would allow us to see the world through His eyes -- moving us to action when we see a hurting or broken brother. Our work with the refugee community downtown has been a truly life-changing experience for us.

  • It's God's Money...

    At LifeBridge, we intentionally do without some of the things we'd enjoy for ourselves so that we are able to give more away. A full 50% of all offerings given are set aside for helping the poor, serving in our community, and starting new churches and schools. While that forces us to "live lean", it has opened the door for all sorts of amazing ministry that has truly transformed lives.

  • Jesus Sent Out 72

    Following Christ is risky, messy and sometimes dangerous. It means going into places you might not normally go, loving people you wouldn’t normally love and risking losing everything for the sake of Jesus Christ. This is the life that Jesus lived, and calls us to live.

  • Homeless ministry

    After years of working with the Montrose Street Reach downtown, our church has become much more active in recent days with a local ministry called Cy-Fair Helping Hands, which works with the homeless and "sheltered homeless" (living in hotels/motels) in the Cypress area. We look forward to a growing relationship with them as we serve God's people together

    Nepal Mission Work

    One of the truly exciting opportunities that God has entrusted to our church is the opportunity to have a very hands on involvment in a church planting venture in Nepal. Through ServLife International, we are actively partnering with around 50 indigenous church planters in Nepal to bring the Gospel to the most remote villages in that country. We also sent full time missionaries there to help establish a micro-finance program in some of the most impoverished villages in extremely remote areas of Nepal. This is literally "ends of the earth" ministry that we are humbled and privileged to be a part of.

50/50

Early on, the people of LifeBridge made the commitment to give away 50% of whatever was given to us. We knew such a bold step would define us, we just didn’t realize how much! Here’s what we’ve found:

What We Give Up

Quite frankly, you’ll have to make some sacrifices to be a part of LifeBridge. When a church gives away half of its offerings, it means we have to be rather frugal when it comes to spending money on our own programs and facilities. Worship is simple, staffing is minimal, and we intentionally do without a lot of the “extras” that many have become used to in church. There are a lot of times throughout the year when we say “No” to things we’d really like to have for ourselves because we’ve chosen to spend our money and our time on serving others. We are, by necessity and by choice, a simple church.

What We Gain

BUT, the positive side of spending so little on ourselves and our own ministry, is that it frees up a LOT of resources that can be invested “out there” in the world. When we come upon needs and opportunities in our daily lives, we have the resources as a church to respond with the love and care of Christ.

The impact is staggering. For the cost of hiring a 1/2 church worker, we have instead been able to completely fund 20 full time church planters taking the Gospel to some of the most remote areas in Nepal. Instead of new lighting, we choose to buy sweatshirts for the homeless folks at Montrose Street Reach. Through a thousand different choices, we are gradually beginning to redefine what it means to be the church, by spending ourselves and our resources on those things that mattered the most to Christ.

“if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness…” — Isaiah 58:10
