The story of THE BRiDGE ORLANDO is one of vision and destiny. Saved and called to the ministry in the summer of 1975 Bart Malone grew up knowing he was called to pastor and be a leader in the body of Christ. Growing up in a large church in the DFW area, spending nearly 15 years vocationally as a entrepreneurial businessman and having the privilege to travel and see the Body of Christ world wide prepared Bart and his family to launch the Bridge Orlando Church in January 2006.
Bart began working with John Paul Jackson in the summer of 1996 and has had the privilege of traveling world wide with him teaching and learning from him as a mentor and spiritual father. Bart has also served on Streams Ministry staff, served as senior pastor of Stonebriar Creek Church, served as General Manager of Vision Life Ministries and has helped to start over 10 churches and 5 business. As a lead church plant with Vision360 Ministry and Bridge Ministries International, formerly the Association of Bridge Churches, he is now senior pastor of The Bridge Orlando and Chairman of Bridge Ministies International.
The 200close close 6 church launch was an exciting time in the lives of Bart’s family along with 5 other families from Dallas Fort Worth who relocated to Orlando in the fall of 2005. We followed the direction of the Lord and built the church by faith and hard work. Through numerous confirmations, the Lord divinely directed the group and established this young church. Over the last few years God has matured the leaders and congregation and firmly established the Bridge Orlando as a primary source of influence in the Orlando Christian Community.
