WHAT IS BRIDGEFEST?
A BRIEF HISTORY...
THE BRIDGE RADIO STATION BEGINS
With a famine of the Word of God in the land and a pressing need for sound Bible teaching, Pastor Lloyd prayed the Lord would make a way to provide a station to address the spiritual climate. With his radio program Bridging the Gap airing on a prominent New York Christian talk radio station since the early 1990s, he understood the profound impact radio can have. Because of this he sought for a way to air not only his own program, but a host of other solid Bible teachers through the ministry and vision of The Bridge Christian Radio.

2005 - TODAY
The Lord put it on the heart of The Bridge staff to host a beach festival in Ocean Grove, NJ designed to draw people closer to the Lord through teaching and worship music. Also, this event has always been and continues to be such a great opportunity for the community to get involved to serve others. We partner with local and west coast churches who come out to serve in many areas that include, the concert, teacher tables, kid activities, servant meals, the baptism and set up/tear down.
JUNE 2005 | The Bridge hosted YESS Festival with Audio Adrenaline and Falling Up as the featured bands with Pastor Pancho Juarez delivering a Gospel-centered message at the end of the night. YESS Festival made a tremendous impact in the hearts and minds of many prompting The Bridge to continued hosting the annual festival for over 15 years with one small change; the festival was renamed Bridgefest. Bridgefest has seen many tremendous moments over the years, from rededications to first time commitments to the Lord.
