Pastors & Staff

Orlando & Kim Juarez

Lead Pastor & Associate Pastor

Orlando is the founding and senior pastor of The Bridge. Prior to starting The Bridge in 2009, he served for five years as the Associate Pastor and Worship Pastor of The Crossing Church in The Woodlands, Texas. Preceding his time at The Crossing, Orlando served for 13 years as the Worship Minister at Grace Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In every role he has served, there are two characteristics that define what Orlando is about – a love for God that is infectious and a love for people that expresses acceptance.

As an associate pastor, Kim manages the administrative functions and detail responsibilities of The Bridge. She also oversees the women’s ministries.
