Bert Haugen served Bridges in the past as both a deacon and an elder. Bert and Sharon raised their two sons, Erik and Gunnar, and one daughter, Stacey, (all now in their 20’s) at Bridges and have together served the Lord in many teaching and shepherding roles. They led Bridges’ AWANA ministry for many years as well as taught Sunday School and led their Life Group. He is employed as an engineer at Lockheed. Bert was a member of our board that carried out Bridges’ transition from a deacon to an elder form of governance.
