The men’s small group, “Stepping Up Men,” meets on second and fourth Saturdays, 7:30-9:30 AM. The group is currently discussing the book Stepping Up: A Call to Outrageous Manhood, by Dennis Rainey.

Ministry leader Beryl Chase sees the small group as only the starting point for serving the men of Bridge Church and consequently all Bridge families. He desires this ministry to be an encouraging place that “provides accountability, forgiveness, character development, understanding, and a safe place to discuss the challenges and adventure of life as a man.”

If you are interested in learning more about the “Stepping Up Men” small group or in connecting with other men at Bridge, please leave a message for Beryl by calling or emailing our church office.




Beryl is an executive chef consultant and advocate of organic sustainable foods. He has provided food, catering, and hospitality to clients that range from the White House to the Kennedy Center Honors. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and taking trips to the ocean.
