Danny Bridgens

Danny Bridgens is a pastor, spiritual director, and worship leader. He received his M.A. in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care from the prestigious Institute for Spiritual Formation at Talbot Theological Seminary.

After almost 20 years in pastoral ministry, he founded Via Vetera, a non-profit organization that focuses on Christian spiritual formation.

For Danny, there are questions that have to be walked out: How do we find peace when we know that perfection is not possible and weakness is a given? Why do we continue to sin when we know so much? What does it mean that I am in a relationship with God?

These are aspects of the heart that can be only be uncovered in the safety of God’s grace and in the context of a loving community. It is Danny’s greatest joy to accompany people on their journey as they grow in their relationship with Christ.
