Chris Ward

worship director 

Chris is a rare breed. He was born and raised in sunny San Diego and is proud of it. He made a decision to follow Jesus his freshman year in high school then went to UC Santa Barbara where he quickly got involved with Cru. He loves international travel and was blessed to serve several times in the Middle East. 

Currently he is pursuing a Master's degree in Missional Leadership Development at Bethel Seminary while trying to balance work at Bridge and being a newly wed. 

Every week, you'll find Chris rocking out with his beloved band on stage or practicing singing in Spanish as he leads our church in both English and Spanish on any given Sunday. He is an avid reader and loves having meaningful conversations with friends or complete strangers.
