With churches around the country being shut due to the deadly coronavirus pandemic, a Georgia pastor decided to sing and share the gospel with his entire neighborhood.
Rev. Emill Bridges used his own driveway to sing gospel music and amplified his voice to an entire neighborhood of residents, virtually to his church congregation and beyond.
Rev. Bridges, from Riverdale, Georgia, is using the opportunity to share the gospel through Christian songs. A video os him singing a gospel song titled “Way Maker” has emerged on social media which shows him singing on a mic while accompanied by recorded backup vocals.
In the video you can see his neighbors standing out of their houses to listen to Bridges’ captivating and powerful singing voice. “Waymaker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper – that is who You are! (Every neighborhood should be doing this!)” the video caption read.
Waymaker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper – that is who You are! (Every neighborhood should be doing this!)
Statistics show that 98% of professing Christians have NEVER shared the Gospel with their neighbors! Great time for that to change!

“Waymaker” was originally written by professional singer and songwriter Sinach, an award-winning worship leader from Nigeria which has been since covered by Christan artists including Michael W. Smith, Hillsong, Leeland, and Bethel Music.
With this video of Bridges becoming viral on social media, Sinach herself has taken note of it and shared it on her own Instagram page with a caption saying, “Go follow him, my friends,” Sinach linked Bridges social media handle @emillministries, to her post.
In a separate Facebook post in response to his video’s popularity, Bridges thanked God for the opportunity to spread the gospel message through song and the power of social media. “Lord we bless you and give you praise!” he wrote.
