staff bio's


Josh & Rachel Weikal

Josh & Rachel met in 2006 at YWAM (youth with a mission) in Tyler, TX. They got married the following year and currently have 2 daughters, ages 6 & 3. When they aren't doing ministry, they enjoy spending time outside with their girls, hanging out with friends, and visiting the beach at the ocean. Josh is a self proclaimed chocolate-holic, and Rachel would love to be able to sit down and read a book without involuntary interruption again someday. 

Bi-vocation: Josh is an electrician & Rachel is a stay-at-home mom/homeschooler


Garrett & alayna Gatrost

Garrett & Alayna met in 2014 at YWAM (youth with a mission) in Louisville, KY. They got married a little over 2 years later and recently became a family, with the addition of their little baby boy! When they aren't doing ministry, they enjoy spending time at various bridges in the Minneapolis area, hanging out at coffeeshops and spending time with friends. Garrett dreams of the day that he will become a pro angler, and Alayna could easily take up a profession as a calligraphist. 

Bi-vocation: Garrett is a framing carpenter & Alayna is a stay-at-home mama


Kimberley hEUle

Kimberley spent a whole year at YWAM (youth with a mission) in Louisville, KY before joining Bridge Church staff in the spring of 2017. When Kimberley isn't doing ministry, you can find her hanging out with her adorable little nephew, sitting at a Starbuck's or reading a good book. Kim has been quoted saying, if she was "forced to eat a steady diet of just bread, it would be like heaven on earth." 

Bi-vocation: Kimberley is a nanny for 3 kiddos
