BRIDGE OF LIFE
Location: Leland Community, NC (10 miles South of Wilmington, NC)
Pastor: Rev. Jerome and Gwen Bullard
Rev. Jerome Bullard and his wife Gwen planted a new church in 2006 in the Leland community, about 10 miles south of Wilmington, NC, one of the fastest growing areas in North Carolina.The church was first called “Bridge Builders Outreach” and later changed to “Bridge of Life Community Church”.
Pastor Jerome and Gwen Bullard were very pleased when Bridge of Life Community Church held its first service on Sunday, September 3rd, 2006 with forty five in attendance. In six short years they have grown to nearly 300 in average Sunday attendance. Pastor Jerome and Gwen Bullard are excited to see God continually doing the unexpected in bringing the church more and more into His perfect purpose. Jerome is an instrument in God’s hand to develop this new work in Leland, NC. He is full time in the ministry of the church. Jerome and Gwen started in a school for 3 months with a Bible study on Wednesday evenings. Their goal was to form a group before launching Sunday Morning worship. After 3 months the first Sunday morning celebration service was launched. For the next 3 years they worshipped in the school. While they are thankful for the opportunity to use the school facilities, it was an exciting time when they moved to their current location in June 2009.
About Rev. Jerome and Gwen Bullard
– Pastors of Bridge of Life Community Church
I have now attended the Bridge of Life Community Church for almost a year and play the keyboard for the praise team. I just wanted to say that it has been a year full of blessings and growth. The sacrifice that I see from my pastor and his wife has given me a stronger desire to serve God. We meet in a school and therefore we have to set-up and take-down every Sunday! It is not an easy task. Pastor Jerome focuses on getting the auditorium ready while his wife, Gwen, makes preparation for the kid’s class and the nursery. She misses teaches during preaching because of the limited time that we have. God has seen and is seeing the sacrifice and is using it for his glory. We have had as many as 80 in attendance and have seen at least 8 souls saved. In the words of another member of our body, “God shows up every Sunday”. God is blessing us physically and spiritually with growth. Pastor Jerome and his wife open up their home every Wednesday evening for a bible study that his created a group of people that not only get spiritually fed, but have a great time fellowshipping! This group encouraged a member who was impressed to start a youth bible study for teens. She is having as many as 24 every Wednesday night. God has used our pastor in many ways to promote his kingdom by having a “KINGDOM AGENDA” mind set. It’s not all about desires, it’s about action and results!! Church should be a hospital for sinners, not a nursing home for saints!
