"I was looking for a way to support the community. I believe in the work that First Bridge does and believe I can support their efforts through technological solutions and support."
Pastor at Petal First Baptist Church
"I love the opportunity that we have to serve, touch and impact the lives of children and families through resources and relationships so that they can clearly hear the life changing message of the Gospel. It’s such a joy to see the eyes of a child light up with a new pair of shoes or clothes or a food bag for a weekend! I love to see the hope that we can give a parent or grandparent who desperately needs it!"
Manager of Communications at the USM Foundation
"Before becoming involved with First Bridge, I did not have a lot of involvement with local missions beyond the walls of Petal First Baptist Church. Since I began serving on the Board, I’ve realized a lot about the physical and spiritual needs in our community, and I want to be a part of meeting those needs."
Teacher of English as a Foreign Language Online
"Seeing the positive impact on families and especially children when receiving school uniforms and/or summer food bags made me want to become more involved in this ministry."
Former Science Teacher & Stay at Home Mother & Aspiring Artist
"I’ve been actively involved in missions within Petal First Baptist Church for several years but have never formally served on a team whose emphasis is solely on mission opportunities that reach out to individuals within our own community. Joining First Bridge allows me to do just that."
