Bishop Whichard’s greatest desires are to see lives transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit, individuals and families walking in their Kingdom assignment, the five-fold ministry at work in the church, and a supernatural awakening of miracles, signs, and wonders in the earth.

Bishop Whichard is the devoted husband to Co-Pastor and First Lady Kristi, and a loving father to John Marc and wife, Kayla, Moriah, and Jensen.

Co-Pastor Kristi H. Whichard

Pastor Kristi Whichard is the wife of Bishop Johnathan M. Whichard Sr. and serves alongside her husband as Co-Pastor of The Bridge Church. Pastor Kristi was radically saved and delivered when she was 21 years old which in turn, evoked a fervent desire to help other women also find the same freedom and victory she received. She remains a steady voice in the local church, but also teaches and preaches at other churches, events, and women’s conferences, as well as offering spiritual guidance to the women in her church and community. Pastor Kristi is currently seeking to advance her biblical studies and certification in marriage/family counseling.

Pastor Kristi’s greatest treasure has always been, and still is her family. She is deeply devoted to supporting her husband and children in whatever capacity they need. She absolutely loves being a mother to John Marc and wife, Kayla, Moriah, and Jensen.
