The Bridge Christian Radio Announces Bridgefest 2018

WRDR/Freehold Township (The Bridge Christian Radio) presents Bridgefest 2018 with musical guests and multi-Dove Award winning musicians The Afters, as well as musical artists Citizens & Saints and Johnny Diaz in concert on Saturday, June 23rd in beautiful Ocean Grove, NJ. Pastor Tony Clark of Calvary Chapel Newport News, Virginia, whose program The Word Made Plain is heard daily on The Bridge, will also share a Gospel message during the concert.

Now in its 14th year, Bridgefest remains the largest and longest-running Christian summer festival of its kind to be held at the Jersey Shore and serves as The Bridge’s annual outreach event, drawing thousands of people to Ocean Grove, NJ each summer.

“The Bridge has filled in the missing link between talk radio and Christian music, and between God’s Word and our daily lives,” says Lloyd Pulley, senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Old Bridge, co-founder of The Bridge, and featured teacher on the station.  “The Bridge focuses on the straightforward teaching of the Bible, featuring some of the nation’s best teachers and communicators.  These great teachers join musicians and listeners who gather at Bridgefest to celebrate our common delight in God and His Word.”

Bridgefest events held throughout the day on June 23rd include teachings from on-air pastors, a rally for youth, Q&A panels, a beach baptism, ministry and business vendors, and family-friendly activities, including face painting and more.  The day’s activities conclude with the evening concert featuring The Afters, Citizens & Saints, and Jonny Diaz as well as a Gospel message by Pastor Tony Clark. The event is one day filled with faith, family, and fun for all.

“We cannot wait to see what God will do this year through Bridgefest,” says Rob Taylor, General Manager of The Bridge.  “Everyday we hear how The Bridge is changing the lives of people, and now we get to meet those same people face-to-face, in what will prove to be a historic day for the station, for Ocean Grove, and for each of us.”
