Ricky and Carissa Hughes
Ricky Hughes first felt a calling on his life when he was 17 while attending a youth group in Dallas, Texas. He moved to Tampa in 2006 to serve under one of his former youth leaders, Joel Eason, at Bridgeway Church in Wesley Chapel, FL.
In 2007, Ricky married Carissa. He also graduated from Southeastern University with a degree in Church Leadership the same year. In early 2008, Ricky was brought on staff as the Student Pastor for Bridgeway and served in that role for nearly nine years, overseeing middle and high school students. During this time, Ricky and Carissa grew their family by two beautiful kids – Lillian and Samuel.
At the beginning of 2015, Ricky took a major step of faith. Feeling the call on his life to launch a church, Pastor Joel and Ricky decided to launch a campus in hopes that one day it would become its own entity. After months of praying and hard work, Bridgeway Church officially launched its Trinity Campus on February 21st, 2016.
Ricky and Carissa are amazed how God continues to provide in every way. They are excited to see God continue to bless the Trinity and Odessa area and look forward to being a part of the growth of the community.
