The Bridge (WKNZ, 88.7 FM, Dover, DE; WNKZ, 92.5 FM, Salisbury, MD and WNJH, 105.5 FM Cape May Courthouse, NJ) hosted 150 pastors and their spouses for the first-ever Recharge conference recently.
The event was held at United Church, Milford campus, and featured author and speaker Jimmy Dodd, founder and executive director of PastorServe.org in Kansas City. Dodd acknowledged the past two years have been very difficult for pastors and churches because of the pandemic, and he related ways to help them not just survive, but to thrive.
The mission of The Bridge is to connect people to Jesus and each other and strengthen their lives, and helping pastors is part of why The Bridge exists, according to station manager Bill Sammons. “Too often, nobody is helping take care of the caregivers, and we wanted to provide an environment where pastors and their spouses could relax, enjoy some food, worship and encouragement, and just take a deep breath”, Sammons said.
The event was capped off with a surprise performance by Red Street Records artist Jason Crabb.
