[ Bridgepoint Connections ]

connecting professional and spiritual life

At Bridgepoint we are seeking to connect our personal, professional and spiritual lives and to develop leaders and emerging leaders from the inside out. We do this by cultivating a different kind of leadership — personal leadership. Our Bridgepoint initiative will provide opportunities and environments to help you successfully balance your time, relationships, and work by developing an integrated life and worldview.




Luncheon with special guest, Os Guinness, Author, Lecturer, Journalist

London, Brussels, San Bernardino. We are living in the most murderous hundred years in human history, and we are the first generation to witness every human act of evil as it happens. 

Today we are faced with a sobering truth: evil is a reality of everyday life for you and me and the entire human race. How can we navigate and confront the difficult landscape of evil in our world, our communities, and yes, even in our own lives.

Join us for lunch and a challenging talk on "Facing Up to the Challenge of Evil."
