TM Conference logo

We want to be a movement of churches that experiences things only God can do. For this reason, our 2022 Transformation Ministries Conference is built around the theme: Only GOD. Join us as we revisit the book of Acts and look at how the supernatural work of God turned the world upside down. Powerful main sessions, helpful breakouts, and multiple opportunities to connect will refresh your faith, and encourage you to believe God for something greater.

Eric Van Schoonhoven

Main Session Speaker

Eric is the Lead Pastor of a fast growing church in Glendale, AZ. The Bridge Church (TBC) is now 3 years old, and has seen hundreds saved and baptized since her launch. TBC is currently undergoing a building expansion that will include 30,000 square feet of new ministry space to impact our city for Jesus.

Eric, Meagan, and Samson make up the Van Clan. We are a family that enjoys doing anything that doesn't involve sitting around. Sports, nature, and everything in between is where you will find us most days.

2020-2021 has brought me more confidence for the future of the church than the 10 years prior. This is what I was put on this planet for. The world is falling apart, and we have the greatest opportunity of our lifetime to see a lost world come to know Jesus.
