Our mission

Bridge Ministries, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has helped thousands of people find and fulfill their God-given life calling since 1998. We opened the BMI Oasis in 2014.

John Studebaker, Ph.D., is the Director of the BMI Oasis and Professor of Theology with the LEMA Seminary. He earned an M.Div. from the International School of Theology (1989) and a Ph.D. from Trinity International University (2003). He has taught at Hillsdale College (14 years) and Cornerstone University (2 years). He has served with Campus Crusade for Christ, Probe Ministries, and as a Pastor with two churches.

Julie Studebaker, CTA, is the Facilities Coordinator of the BMI Oasis. She is co-host of Hymntime, a popular Southern Gospel radio show every Sunday morning. Julie is joyful, enthusiastic and, more than anything, loves God passionately. She enjoys cooking, pickleball, traveling, and caring for the elderly. Read more about Julie’s spiritual journey here.
