About Crossing Bridges
Crossing Bridges Tacoma, Who Are We? /About Us:
Founder & Organizer Rev. Bruce Walmer story makes him uniquely qualified to minister to those most in need in our community. He is a native of Washington State, born and reared in Tacoma, ordained in 2012 after obtaining a Masters Degree from Covenant Seminary and licensed as a minister in 2017. From his father serving in WWII to his wife’s work with a children’s non-profit for more than 20 years and our 18-year old pursuing a Christian vocation, his family and dedicated partners consider it a privilege and blessing to extend the hand of friendship, kindness and compassion to those in need.
We offer hope and pray with and for the homeless.
We procure and organize supplies such as sleeping bags, food, basic hygiene products, and clothes.
We recommend appropriate community programs as needed and assist the homeless in taking the first step towards a better life.
We work with various civic leaders, law enforcement and health care professionals to bring the plight of homelessness to light.
Serve as pastor to the homeless community by satisfying their baptismal and wedding needs, through hospital ministry and offering eulogies.
We meet the homeless where they are on their journey by speaking with them, listening to them and making them feel valued.
