Our History

Bridge the Gap Ministry (BTG) was founded in August of 2018 by Billie-Jewel and her husband Sean Sexton. The ministry’s mission is to make the church a safe, inviting, and accepting place for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. As a survivor herself, Billie-Jewel hopes to help others heal. She has an Interdisciplinary Bachelor’s Degree with a focus in social and behavioral sciences from Liberty University. And she worked at the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) as a Domestic Violence Victim Advocate before leaving to be home with her son and pursue God’s calling on her heart to ministry.
