“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.”
2 Timothy 2:2
“…I think it’s key that we as Christians not only know God’s word, but pass it on to others. That’s why we’re here.”
Les Pearsey, Director
Thirteen years ago, a new church plant happened in Bakersfield called The Bridge. It wasn’t long before they noticed that they did not have anything for the Men. They organized an overnight retreat and enlisted 42 “hungry men” to get away to pray about becoming Men of God and leading other men to Christ.
The 42 “hungry men” had an amazing retreat and began meeting monthly to keep the fire burning. Soon, their numbers grew rapidly and then, they realized they needed a way to disciple these men. The brothers with Influencers West in Orange County told them about The Journey discipleship process. They started leading Journey groups and raising up leaders to do the same. These disciples are making a huge impact on their families, their church and their community.
They have weekly Journey meetings, regular Outreach events, monthly dinners to connect men and annual retreats.
