They graduated from Life Pacific College in 2005, then moved to Cornelius, NC to be the middle school youth pastors at Grace Covenant Church. After four years, Jake accepted a position at the Southeast District office as the NextGen Director and then later as the Director of Operations. Jake and Lindsay then moved to Charles Town in 2015 to accept the position as lead pastors here at theBridge. They quickly fell in love with this area and felt right at home at theBridge.

Pastor RAndy and Cherie Reed
Hi! We are Randy and Cherie Reed. We started serving as youth pastors at theBridge in 2008 and transitioned to leading all NextGen Ministries from babies to young adults in July 2016. And we love theBridge church! We know how important it is to disciple students so they can know their identity in Christ and begin the journey to the calling God has for them. We really enjoy doing ministry as a team. Our desire for those who volunteer in NextGen is to equip and release them to serve the kingdom of God by investing into the next generation. We truly enjoy our church family!
