  • The Bridge in Joplin, Missouri, is a massive entertainment complex for teenagers that includes a state-of-the-art concert hall, gymnasiums, a skatepark and an Internet café. And it’s all a Christian outreach ministry, to keep kids out of trouble and into the Lord.
  • With its wide variety of services and facilities, the complex aims to be a one-stop, all-day rec center built on nondenominational Christian values.
  • Prices are low and highly customizable. A three-hour session on the climbing wall? $7. A yearly all-access pass to everything? $650. Eternal life? Priceless.
  • Christians increasingly are demanding mainstream recreation and popular culture that reflects their values. It’s a nice convergence with kids’ need to have somewhere to go and something to do.
  • Urban ministries are emerging that reach out to youth through rock ‘n’ roll, skating culture and other activities for healthy heart, mind and soul.
