Since 1998, Life Bridge has held 10 week sessions of Life Skills and GED/pre-GED classes in the Austin area throughout the year. We focus resources and meet practical needs of individuals and families through:
GED / Adult Basic Education Tutoring
Work Readiness Skills Training including computers
Life Skills Training
English as A Second Language (ESL)
ESL is available at all three locations. The other programs are only available at Twin Lake Fellowship Church in Cedar Par, TX.
The purpose of Life Bridge Job Corps is to provide a Christian context in which families in need are equipped for life and employment and a missions context in which Christians serve their community.
Work Readiness Training is provided in a classroom setting during two to three sessions a year in English and Spanish.
English as a Second Language and conversational English are taught at all three of our locations.
GED and Pre-GED program
At Life Bridge’s GED and pre-GED Programs, we meet our students “where they are” and encourage them to reach beyond that. Through classroom instruction, individual attention, and peer contribution, our students emerge as confident, empowered individuals. Our class sessions meet multiple times a year for 10-12 weeks each; we believe that it’s never too late to jump in and start learning.
Having started with a handful of people a few years ago, we have grown into an energetic, loving group of people. We are a church for all people, amazingly diverse, yet still maintaining a family atmosphere. Our desire is to make disciples for Jesus Christ from all backgrounds. In order to fulfill His mission, we inspire people to live FULLY for God. This idea permeates our core beliefs and is integrated into our worship services, ministry fellowships, and small groups.
We would like to invite you to our weekend worship service and experience God’s awesome power and presence. Through biblical preaching and teaching, we present God’s timeless truths that are straightforward and easy to understand, even if you weren’t raised in church all your life.
When people come to Twin Lakes for the first time, they usually mention three things: the music, the message, and the people. Our worship is inspirational, but wanting only to impress our Lord Jesus Christ. Throughout the worship hour we demonstrate how we can offer praise to God Almighty. Our message challenges all to grow as God has designed us, and our people 24/7 put their love on display for a dark and hurting world.
We invite you to come and be a part of knowing God’s full potential for your life.
The Christian Compassion Center, Inc. (C3) collects merchandise from national retail outlets, businesses, and individuals for distribution to citizens in need, free of charge. Through our ever growing number of volunteers and partners, we have been able to assist families in their immediate tangible goods needs and at the same time, empower our partners to assist in core needs assessment and long term holistic solutions.
1 John 3:17: “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
What we do:
Since inception in July 2010, C3 has donated over $3,100,000 of materials to Austin’s disadvantaged community.
The materials are available and the needs are great. Our hope is that through these acts of giving and kindness, we can facilitate the communication of the Gospel through these endeavors.
Why we do it:
To demonstrate compassion by giving valuable goods to those in need and through these activities share the Good News.
What’s in it for supporters?
Knowledge that you are:
Reflecting God’s grace through acts of kindness.
Contributing to the welfare of our city’s disadvantaged.
Helping to eliminate waste destined for local landfills.

Electrician and Plumber Trades Training
March 2nd – July 29th, 2017
Career Life Ministry desires to reach the next generation with the life changing reality of Jesus Christ while training them for technical career opportunities through short-term OSHA and NCCER certificated training in the electrical trade. Our mentors guide participants in an atmosphere of caring and genuine concern for the student’s spiritual future as well as their careers. A low student to staff ratio allows for deeper personal relationships that are key in life and career transformation.
Often times we just need a supportive listening ear and wisdom from the Bible to help free us up to move on in our lives. Sandra and Ran Stovall provide just such services to families at free or low cost. Call Sandra to set up an appointment.

Nineveh Ministries’ mission is to connect mentors with juvenile offenders to help them find purpose, personal growth and achievement. Our goal is to break the cycle of incarceration and help juveniles embrace the forgiveness, grace and future that comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Through study and experience we have found that building relationship with the teens while in placement enables us to connect with and mentor teens more effectively once they are released. It is this full system approach that allows us to partner with Williamson County to ensure that the juveniles in the county have the best chance for transition and success in their re-entry into the community. We serve teens who have been or are currently in the Williamson County Juvenile Justice Centers: Academy, Trinity and Triad.
Services provided for teens in placement : Transportation to church, job interviews, job fairs or furloughs when par-ents are not available. Mentoring, Three Day Money Training seminar and a Christmas Celebration.
Services for teens upon release and probation: Eight week Anger Management Course, Yearly Retreats, Hang-outs, Employment help, Phoenix House IOP, Mentoring .
