“It has been a blessing for me to have the opportunity to do the work I do and with the people I do it for. Our team strives to operate the business by God’s word and its principles. The “BRIDGE” illustrates God’s plan for us all and is the truth that we look to share with those we work with. We feel God’s hand has been on us and to whom much has been given much is required. We love being constructors and building is our expertise, but the eternal things are at the core of our hearts' work."
