Healing. Identity. Unity.

Building Bridges Ministries exists to create opportunities for the Body of Christ to come together in unity so that we might be a true reflection of Jesus Christ and together as One, bring hope and healing to our communities.
John 17:21-24

The Church was meant to function as One Body. Though we are different by design, together, we are a reflection of Jesus Christ! 1Corinthians 12:12, 13a "Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body, whether Jews or Gentiles, slaves or free...even so the body is not made up of one part but of many."

Our Vision

Sherrie Pucket
Founder and CEO of Building Bridges Ministries

Our Vision is to bring a diverse group believers together, creating a family community among God's people. We do this by providing a once a month luncheon for pastors and ministry leaders. This time together has no agenda other than Acts 2:42-48. "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. "This vision is scriptural and is at the very heart of God our Father. (Galatians 4:5) Imagine a community where Christians from every tongue, tribe and nation , different ethnicities walked in unity with one another and worked together and prayed together to solve the issues facing our communities. Imagine believers in Jesus Christ from different denominations coming together to seek the Lord for answers regarding the challenges our world is facing. Imagine believers  from different socioeconomic backgrounds being so knit together that they share their resources.(Acts 4:34,35) Imagine the prayer of Jesus Christ in John 17:21-24 becoming the prayer of every Jesus follower!  Imagine Christians having the reputation that they walk in supernatural love for one another and for all! (John 13:35) We know that this is not something that we can accomplish in our own strength. It is a work of Holy Spirit just as our Salvation is a work of Holy Spirit. When we surrender our will to His way, we are changed and our communities are transformed!  Building Bridges Ministries is committed to doing our part. As a mental health professional, God placed it on my heart to put together a mental health team of individuals who have a passion for unity and a love for the hurting. Though most of our clients can pay for our services, many cannot. We fundraise so that we can help our brothers and sisters with nonprofits who are doing a great work for the kingdom of God but are missing the vital necessity of mental health support. It is with great joy that we can share that our program is working! When our nonprofit partners succeed, we all succeed! My wonderful mental health team donates countless hours because the need is greater than our financial resources so we need your help! Please consider supporting Building Bridges Ministries with a gift of any amount. The need  today is greater than ever. Thank you for your consideration and most of all, your prayers!

Kind words from our nonprofit partners

Sherrie I would just like to express my gratitude for the services Building Bridges/Thrive is providing to the ladies we serve in GROW.  The ladies are recognizing their value and worth and understanding the importance of spiritual as well as mental support to help on their new journey.   Several of the ladies have set their goal to save money towards purchasing a house by the time they graduate from our program. One of the ladies had already started using the Plan Cassie was sharing with the ladies.  She is now helping the other ladies to understand and start exercising better spending and saving habits.  It is very important that the ladies are hearing from an outside reliable source about living a successful productive life in the community and reassuring them they can make it and don't have to go back to their old habits and lifestyles.    These ladies are looking at life through a new set of eyes and truly appreciate the support they are receiving from you.    I truly appreciate your support and know that we could not make it without the support of organizations like yours Building Bridges for these ladies to cross over into a new life.

I am honored to serve as the co-founder/executive director for KC United! Youth/Family Sports & Education Initiative out of Kansas City, Kansas.  We have been and are blessed by God to be going strong for the past thirteen years primarily serving in the urban core of Wyandotte County. What Building Bridges Mental Health (headed my Bro. & Sis. Tony Puckett) was and is providing is nothing short of helping us build more capacity to meet our participants (youth/teens/parents/guardians) social/emotional needs. They help us give a holistic ‘balance’ to what we desire to fulfill in KC United! Why, because our theme: “Strengthening our city one soul, one life…one family at a time”.  Is the whole core of who we are and desire to be.
