To begin with the history of bridgelife music (the ministry/label), is really to begin with the friendship and vision that God was pouring into nightlife worship (the artist). About 4 years ago the worship leaders of The Bridge Church in Rancho Santa Margarita, California began to notice a real spiritual synergy and alignment of hearts in regards to praise and worship. And even the differences that they brought to the table only served to disciple and shape one another. Their passion to lead in worship began to well up inside, and the songs that God was birthing in their hearts began to manifest in the church.

Ahhhh the church..The Bridge. The vision of Senior Pastor Ryan Oddo to see people "bridging the gap between you are, and who you're created to be" and our relationship with our church family shaped not only the context of the overall vision, but the musical and lyrical delivery of nightlife worship's songs. We are passionate about seeing people set free by magnifying the greatness of God in our hearts, the firm foundation of our identity and calling anchored in Christ, and courageously moving forward in the power of His Spirit to accomplish every good thing He has prepared. The result? Authentic, high energy praise rooted in scripture and lived out in real time, every day life. God is doing such a powerful work here! The DNA He has sown into us is meant to soar far beyond this city!

So fast forward..nightlife worship have all been faithfully serving on Sundays alongside the worship team, playing at various camps and churches, even countries, and have produced enough material to compose an entire 12 song album. Each song has been birthed within congregational environments and have the congregation in mind. Melodies easy to pick up on, easily reproducible by other worship teams and leaders, and packed full of the truth of the gospel presented in a fresh & timeless way. 

In their travels and various missons trips around the world, Pastor Adam Lohrbach began to notice that although the worship community is immensely diverse it shares so many of the same needs, goals, struggles, conversations.. Different cultures, different perspectives, but all serving the same King. It only makes sense that we would all need and be impacted by similar experiences within the praise and worship context. From this, bridgelife music hopes to launch a website to host the efforts of nightlife worship and eventually provide mentoring, training and resources for the worship community worldwide. You can click here to catch a glimpse of the BETA site and glean the vision further.

Thank you for considering partnering with us in what we are convinced God has ordained for us. Training, mentoring and resourcing the worship community and sewing new songs of praise to the local church. Let's do this together!

Album release in Spanish!!

Any additional funds will sew into even greater production of the record (it will sound better) and releasing the album in SPANISH. That's right in SPANISH! Two of our worship leaders are fluent and the band has been working with credible bilingual scholars and have most of the songs already translated! We're hoping to provide all of bridgelife music's ministry resources with Spanish subtitles as well. Roughly $1,000-$1,500 extra should provide the studio time, rental equipment and time needed to do it well. Sneek peak video coming soon!

bridgelife music is a ministry of The Bridge. We are a church in the city of Rancho Santa Margarita. As such we are a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) and all donations will be tax deductible (we will mail you a receipt for your pledge amount within 1 month of completion of this project). Please be rest assured that ALL profits will go to the project and none of the monies raised will be absorbed into the church for use of anything other than the above mentioned expenses. 100% of your donation goes to the project which essentially is funding the debut record and a website to serve the project.

New Content will be added weekly. We hope you check back in soon and more importantly, that you are inspired! God bless!

Check out this live acoustic performance of Song of the Redeemed. It was recorded on an iPhone, but the heart still shines through!

Risks and challenges

One of the greatest challenges will be the recording process. With so many of us raising families, working full-time and serving at church events we will have to be highly intentional about the use of our time and leveraging every second we have to record efficiently. We're currently meeting weekly to discuss every detail of this Kickstarter project, recording, touring, etc. and we feel confident that we are flexible enough to finish the record for a March release.
The other obstacle is if the project over-funds, we will have to quickly learn the songs in Spanish and record that audio at the same time we record the content in English so that both versions of the record can be mixed and mastered at the same time. Fortunately, we have the mentors to teach us proper enunciation and vocal timing as well as 2 members that are fluent in Spanish. We will be intentional about practicing to pre-recorded demos in Spanish that we can mimic and become comfortable with before hand. We can do it!
