WHO WE ARE
WHO WE ARE:
LifeBridge Community Church was launched on Easter Sunday 2005.
We are here to provide a place for individuals and families in our community to enter a relaxed environment where they have an opportunity to begin a spiritual journey to discover who God is.
We strive to make all our teaching thought provoking yet packaged in such a way that even those who have no church background will understand everything being said. The goal of everything we do is to help people connect with God and discover and live out His purposes for their lives. Come discover your value to God!
LifeBridge is a affiliated with the Baptist General Conference of Canada. We are the first BGC church in Nova Scotia – and for that matter, the only one in Atlantic Canada.
Here is a brief introduction to our pastor and his family:
LEAD PASTOR: STEVE SAVAGE
My name is Steve Savage, and have had the privilege of joining the staff at LifeBridge Community Church in August 2017.
If truth be told, I’m not that interesting. My greatest accomplishment is probably the fact that I have been married to an amazing woman, Debbie, since 1989 and can say that we’re still in love with each other, even while raising 3 great kids, Bryce 15, Dustin 17 & Sydney 20.
I was in the sales & marketing business (construction related products) for 20 years before becoming a pastor in 2007. However the life of pastoral ministry is not new to me as I come from a line of pastors. My maternal grandfather was a pastor with the Assemblies of God (Pentecostal) in the United States for over 60 years and my father was a pastor with the Fellowship and later General Conference of Baptist churches in Canada for over 50 years. I earned my Bachelor of Theology degree from a Baptist Bible College but then later became involved in pastoral ministry with the Mennonite Brethren Churches of Canada. With my family history I guess you could say I’m a Baptomennacostal.
Debbie’s and my goal in life (outside of loving Jesus, our family and our neighbour) is to lead others, with others, through a lifestyle of discipleship into an active relationship with God the Father through an intimate love relationship with Jesus Christ in order that we together will commit to the commands of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit, ultimately bringing Glory to God, edifying the church and impacting the community in which we live both locally and globally, for the greater good.
We always love meeting people and hearing stories of God’s transforming power, we’re sure looking forward to hearing yours.
CHURCH PLANTING PASTOR: ROB LAIDLAW
If one word were used to describe our family, I think it would be adventure.
We all love adventure, whether it be crawling through caves, scaling waterfalls, hiking scenic look-offs or church planting – we love experiencing God’s creation and stepping out in faith in whatever he calls us to do. Rob has an entrepreneurial spirit and enjoys seeing new kingdom ministries developed and developing young leaders. Julie is a part-time music school teacher and loves both worship ministry and children’s ministries. Brett is planting a church in Barrington, Nova Scotia. Lindsay is on staff with YWAM in Malaysia. She is also developing her web-development business to help support her in her ministry.
Rob and Julie have moved into Eastern Passage where they are proceeding to plant a partner church called Explore Church. Check out their website to discover more.
