Chelsey has been with Bridgehaven since: August 2014

Background: I came to Bridgehaven as a nontraditional leader in nonprofit, especially ministry. With almost 15 years experience in telecommunications leadership and management, the Lord directed my path to Bridgehaven and I haven’t looked back since. I bring the ability to lead and grow strong teams of uniquely talented and skilled individuals, and provide a clear vision for the future. However, no matter what skills I bring to the table, they are nothing in comparison to how God has changed me (so far) through my experience at Bridgehaven. I am so very thankful to be here.

Life at home: I live in Cedar Rapids with my husband, Don, and our son, Max, along with our pet fish, two shrimp, and a snail. We also have two adult children: Zach and Ashley, who is married to our son-in-law, Nate. And we have two grandchildren, Easton and William.

To me, Cedar Rapids is: I love Cedar Rapids for the people. You can walk around town flashing a smile and people will flash one right back. Strangers can quickly become friends and the connections between networks of people are small. Our family loves to visit Bever Park’s Old McDonald’s Farm and watch the Kernels play. Cedar Rapids has always been home and its an honor to serve the community.

Why I’m passionate about what I do: I am passionate about the work of Bridgehaven because it truly empowers us to reach beyond what we can see, beyond what we can feel, and beyond what we might know today. Bridgehaven offers hope in a world of fog, confusion, and turmoil. Within these walls is peace, within these walls is the love of Christ for all people.

A Night with Bridgehaven

The unprecedented times we have walked through felt at many moments, impossible. Yet, through the “impossible," we have experienced the hand of God so clearly and fully, continuously strengthening our faith forward to what God shows us is possible. Through this, we have seen and continue to see the Lord at work each day as we walk through unplanned and unexpected circumstances surrounding pregnancy. 

Our theme for this year is scripture from Mark 10:27: “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” This is a reminder to us daily. When a pandemic hits, storms rage, and political unrest threatens safety, God is in control.  

Seeing God amid impossible circumstances and bringing light into the darkness is a story that will never get old. So, join us for a night of hope and inspiration, education, and information: A Night with Bridgehaven
