who we are

Meet the team behind The Bridge

  • Pastor andy richmond | teaching pastor

    Andy and Angie Richmond have been excited to explore and get to know the community of Bloomington since moving here in October 2019. They have been married for 12 year and they have two children who keep them on their toes. 

    Andy served as a Children and Family Pastor in Kansas City for four years and has also spent time as a Manager at Academy Sports and Outdoors before being called back into ministry this year. Andy enjoys connecting with families over food and fellowship and helping others experience the love of God. 

    Angie is a Media Specialist teacher at Arlington Heights Elementary and Marlin Elementary. She has been teaching for 12 years and loves to teach and engage the children at any position she has held. There are times she will even get a little crazy and let them put Ice cream on her head or dress up in a crazy outfit to show her school spirit.
