Host Country: Bulgaria
The Bridge ministry center is a storefront which is being used to expand Pete and Ursula Hubley's presence in Kazanlak, Bulgaria. The primary desire for the space is to give them a location to foster relationships in their community which will develop into friendships so they have the opportunity to share Christ and produce disciples which will lead to multiplication.
In the local culture it is very foreign to invite a friend into your house for a meal or even coffee. Generally, friends meet at a café or restaurant as a neutral location. Having a storefront allows Pete and Ursula to utilize a neutral space to build and nurture our current relationships and friendships and allow the development of new connections.
The Hubleys are using the storefront to expand their ongoing clubs reach in the community and to develop new clubs to further increase their influence.
