John Casteel

I’ve been the pastor at The Bridge since July, 2016 and I could tell you all about how I got here. 

But here’s the deal: what I really want you to know is that even though I went to college and seminary and have been in ministry for 9 years, I don’t have it all together. 

That’s okay though because the Christian life is not about having it all together; it’s about Jesus having it all together in our place. I want to treasure Jesus more deeply each day because of what He has done for me. That’s what this is all about.  

The best things about my life are my wife, Kristen, and our two boys, Wyeth and Knox. 

Some stuff I enjoy: hanging out with my wife and kids and hanging out with friends over good food and beer. I’m also into music, running, sports, books, and movies. And I’d love to have you come and be a part of our community, so that we can grow in grace together.
