Rebekah is the newest and youngest member of Bridge’s staff. She and her husband of 9 years, Ryan, joined Bridge in the Spring of 2013. Rebekah and Ryan volunteer in multiple ministries, so you have probably met them already. Because they grew up in the church and started volunteering very early in their lives, loving God’s people and his Word comes as second nature to them. If you call or visit the church office, you will find Rebekah there to greet you. She started working at Bridge in February 2016 as a secretary, graphic designer and web master, but in November 2016 she became Bridge’s Office Administrator.
Rebekah Graduated from Westminster College with a degree in Classical Latin and English with a focus on Secondary Education. After college she invested time in learning webpage and graphic design much like other millennial to be “well-rounded.” It isn’t hard to get to know Rebekah; she listens intently, loves deeply and shares openly.
“All men should seek to master three things: life skills, their native language, and their religion.” -Rebekah Hale
