Make A Difference

Global Missions

We are set apart for service

"You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." - Acts 1:8

Reaching the entire world with the gospel is a big task but it’s what Jesus asked all of his followers to do.

This is our Global Mission.

Multiple times a year, Global Missions teams travel around the world and serve right here in Ottumwa. We get to meet physical and spiritual needs and share the love of Jesus Christ in a variety of ways.

We love when our people see a wider lens of what God is doing in the world and grow beyond their comfort zone. The cost of the trip is always worth the investment.

Check out our Trip Calendar to find upcoming opportunities both locally and internationally.

Those who go on mission trips often discover purpose through their service. By giving to Global Missions at The Bridge, you will help fund scholarships toward these trips. Your gift will be an investment in the life change of the participants and those they will serve.



“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.” 1 Timothy 2:1

The power of prayer is an essential foundation to all mission work. By coming to God with our requests, we move His heart and gain deeper insight to His love for ALL people. Our prayer partners affect nations from right where they are. You will receive updates, prayer requests, and answers to prayer from our mission partners. We would love to have you join us.
