You may be new to the station, or you may have been listening for some time. You’ve been blessed by the programming, and now you are wondering how The Bridge came to be.
The vision for the station began when Pastor Lloyd Pulley prayed for God to open the door for a station dedicated to sound Bible teaching and worship music in the central Jersey/NY area. Pastor Lloyd’s radio program, Bridging the Gap, had been on another prominent NY Christian talk radio station since the early 1990’s, and Pastor Lloyd understood the tremendous impact radio could have on this Northeast region.
After a few years, a fellow pastor, Chris McCarrick, learned that just such a station was available for purchase. Understanding the tremendous investment of time, resources, and effort involved in bringing such programming to life, Pastor Lloyd and Pastor Chris committed the venture in prayer. Soon the Lord opened the door for Calvary Chapel Old Bridge to provide the funding for the station, and The Bridge was born!
The Bridge went live on the air for the first time on June 27, 2003. Since then, the station broadcasts the life-changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, without compromise, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Its programming reaches unbelievers with the Good News, and also equips believers to reach their world in the power and might of the Lord Jesus Christ.
God has used The Bridge to reach literally millions of people all over the world, through the station’s online streaming, and throughout the New York / New Jersey area.
