Portion of The Bridge has reopened

Updated:

A portion of The Bridge in Joplin reopened on Monday.

Victory Ministries took over the faith-based activity center a little less than a month ago.

On Monday the Victory Worship Center and Events Center opened.  One of its goals is to allow the entire community to participate in the facility and to spread the gospel to young children through sports.

"For people that have a God given talent that want to use it to have a place to do it, no matter what it is, we just happen to be kind of in the sports realm with some of the people that we know and that's kind of where we have gone with it," says Jack Frost of Victory Ministries.

The whole facility will open on June 21.
