Meet the Global Ed Faculty

Todd Bridges

Todd Bridges
Coordinator of Intercultural Engagement
Student Development


Todd is responsible for engaging and coordinating events that allow minority students to celebrate their cultures amongst the larger body of students. Some of the events include heritage months, Bible studies, Dicaf, and many more. These events are weekly, monthly, and yearly. Also, Todd is assisting other faculty to cultivate, develop, provide, and pioneer opportunities and relationships for students to serve in an intercultural capacity for one week. The course is called Core 337 Intercultural Experience, and it is designed to provide the student body with the opportunity to serve and learn from other cultures and allow God to illumine truth and challenge them simultaneously. Todd lives on campus with his wife, Jessica, and their seven children, Gabriella, Ysabella, Anabella, Orie, Hosea, Daniella, and Joella.

Professional Interests
I most enjoy helping students gain a global perspective for their field of interest and thinking through the scriptures from the standpoint of different cultures. I have a passion for speaking Spanish, interacting with Hispanics, and visiting Hispanic countries. I teach the beginning levels of Spanish, where we navigate what the Bible says about language, discuss who our neighbors are, and get excited about the skills gained in speaking a new language. I have 6 years of experience teaching high school and have enjoyed working with collegiate level students since 2019. I love working with college students because it is such a pivotal time in discovering who they are in Christ and their role in His Kingdom.

Personal Interests
I enjoy spending time outdoors with my adorable dog and traveling or thrift shopping with my husband. When I’m indoors, I’m eating cookie dough and watching Friends reruns. God did not bless me with a beautiful voice like my husband, but I love listening to live music and dancing. We have two wild and crazy children that I adore and talk about daily!
