Grand Rapids Bridge Year and Vineyard Grand Rapids

Bridge Year is thrilled to be developing a relationship with Vineyard Grand Rapids and the Vineyard denomination. Starting in 2024, young people connected to The Vineyard will be able to join the Bridge Year program through the Vineyard Pathway. As members of this pathway, participants will connect twice a week with Vineyard staff, learning Vineyard DNA and serving the local church. Additionally, Vineyard staff will be a part of Bridge Year’s Phase 1 teaching rotation, and pathway participants will have the opportunity to be mentored by Vineyard leaders who will walk through their Bridge Year experience with them.
