BridgeBuilders helps to connect people from different backgrounds to promote a shared understanding of the challenges facing inner-city communities. Those from an outside context typically hear and see mostly negative portrayals of the inner city, often contributing to unhelpful labeling and misguided interactions. We believe the giftedness of the community is more clearly seen through fostering healthy, meaningful experiences that combine learning with active engagement.


BB online uses the teaching content of our in-person trips on the online platform of Zoom. This allows for our groups to learn with us from any location!

What does it mean to be a just and merciful Christian? This lesson compares Ferguson and the recent events around the murder of George Floyd.
