Milton is one of the last 10 natives of Atlanta. He matriculated through the Atlanta Public Schools System. Milton is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While at UNC-CH, he was a member and captain of the track and field team. He won several ACC and NCAA championships during his collegiate career. Following college, he competed several years in professional track and field. Rumor has it that he garnered a world record. Milton holds a Masters of Divinity and Masters in Leadership from Luther Rice University.
Milton always knew that Atlanta was the city he was destined to reside and make a mark upon. However, he thought it would be through professional track and field and coaching. After years of running away from God, he soon learned that his speed, skills and plans were inferior to those the Lord had for his life.
He is married to Christina who is an accomplished athlete in her own right. She is a graduate of Ga Tech and has a law degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She currently runs her own law practice specializing in adoption law. They have two extremely adventurous and athletic daughters, Malia and Moriah.
Mike moved to Atlanta in 2000 and soon after married his wife, Lynn. They both fell in love with Atlanta with its rich culture and distinctive patchwork of neighborhoods. Mike obtained a Masters degree in Social Work and God gave him a heart for the people of Atlanta during his time as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the Children’s Hospital. After a sojourn in the Los Angeles area where Mike completed a Master of Divinity at Biola University, they discovered that God was calling them back to the city they loved.
Mike and Lynn have had the privilege of serving at The Midtown Bridge since 2008 where Mike serves as Elder and Discipleship Pastor. They are grateful to be a part of a church that reflects Atlanta’s unique and diverse culture. Mike lives in Southeast Atlanta with his wife, Lynn and their 3 children.

Brian became part of The Midtown Bridge in 2008, the same Sunday the church moved to meeting in the movie theater and has been an elder for the past several years. He is a graduate of Georgia Tech and works as a Logistics Manager.
Although born here in Atlanta, Brian spent most of his childhood in South America, specifically Peru, while his family served as missionaries. These formative years in ministry alongside his father and mother helped form a strong biblical foundation and a deep love for serving others.
Clear demonstrations of his desire to serve and love others are seen in how he has invested time in leading a small group of young men from sixth grade through their high school graduations this past year. Brian, alongside his wife, has been involved with Hope2Africa since 2010 and has led mission teams from TMB since 2011. This ministry is all about pouring the love of Jesus into youth, teaching them to share the gospel and raising them up as Godly leaders.
His wife, Lindsey, is also a graduate of Georgia Tech where they met and they have one child, Jeremiah. They also welcome other children into their home as foster parents. In his down time, Brian can be found attempting to read more often, playing video games, hiking or otherwise enjoying the outdoors.

Dawn was born the middle child to two loving and supportive parents in Anderson, Indiana. When she was four years old, her family moved to Albany, Georgia where she, her older brother and younger sister had 4-acres of yard to explore during the summer months and plenty of pecans to gather in the fall!
In school, Dawn loved the types of classes that fostered creativity: writing, drawing, painting and building. This lead her to pursue a career in interior design and architecture; she received a Bachelor of Interior Design from Auburn University and a Master of Architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology (this is also where she met her husband, Stephen). Dawn has worked professionally in the areas of interior design and architecture as well as having taught college level design courses and serving as the lead instructor for a local non-profit organization. Currently she balances her time in being a full-time mother, owning her own design practice and serving as the Children’s Ministry Director at The Midtown Bridge Church.
Having always been pursued by God, Dawn finally listened and surrendered her life to Christ during the pregnancy of her daughter two years ago when she realized that she was not in control of her life. As a result, she became (and remains) crazy in love with Jesus, dedicated to studying His word and is devoted to helping others strengthen their relationships with Christ. She knows intimately that there are no words to describe the peace and clarity that comes from complete (and continuous) surrender and desires for everyone to experience this gift.
Dawn is quite possibly the most taken aback that she is on church staff as the Children’s Ministry Director. Having had dreams of becoming a successful designer, it is always an awesome thing to have God intervene in the middle of your plan making. Still passionate about all things design, God has put it on her heart to share the Gospel with our most impressionable group - our children. She sees it as an amazing opportunity to show Gods love and assist in creating young disciples. She sees it is a complete honor to have been chosen for this endeavor.
Dawn Trimble is the wife of Stephen and a mother of two beautiful and energetic children, Nigel and Zada.
