Bridgefest, the annual outreach event of The Bridge Christian Radio Network, consistently draws thousands to Ocean Grove, NJ each summer.Now in its 15th year, Bridgefest remains the largest and longest running Christian Summer festival of its kind to be held on the Jersey Shore.

Bridgefest’s theme for 2019 “Calm in the Storm” is especially significant with the 150th Anniversary of Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association taking place this year. Ocean Grove has survived many storms in its long history most recently Hurricane Sandy.

“In today’s world and in this life of uncertainty, with events and political turmoil rocking our lives, there is only one that has the ability to calm the storm. We must look to Him in the midst of the storm,” said Pastor Lloyd Pulley.

The all-day summer festival is filled with great teaching, faith and fun for the whole family! Events throughout the day include teachings from Bridge Radio On-Air Pastors, a Youth Rally, several Q&A Pastor Panels, a surf clinic, boardwalk games, kid’s activities, food trucks, ministry and business vendors/sponsors, and a beach baptism. The highly anticipated Christian Festival caps the day with a night-time concert featuring Big Daddy Weave and Matt Schuler, one of the top finalists of The Voice – Season 5.

The evening concert will be the second time Big Daddy Weave will perform at Bridgefest.

“We are looking forward to returning to Bridgefest! We’ve always had a great time with the people of New Jersey and can’t wait to see you all soon!” said Mike Weaver of Big Daddy Weave.

The Bridge Radio is a ministry of Calvary Old Bridge and is dedicated to sound Bible teaching.
