Who We Are
“Walk worthy of the calling with which you have been called” (Ephesians 4.1).
A brief look at Bruce Bugbee’s journey… He was raised in an unchurched family in southern California. After attending Young Life and the Crystal Cathedral, he received Christ at the age of 19. While growing in the Lord at Calvary Chapel, he responded to God’s call to full-time ministry. Graduating from Westmont College and Fuller Seminary, he led student ministries in several churches in the west and midwest. After serving in the regional office of a mainline denomination, Bruce joined the staff at Willow Creek Community Church where he was Pastoral Care Director, Internship Coordinator and most passionately developed and led the Network ministry. He published Network, an award-winning equipping resource and a number of other titles in 14 languages (for complete list, see Expanded Bio below). Bruce trained Rick Warren’s staff at Saddleback Church in Network where they developed S.H.A.P.E. Many other churches have been influenced with Network’s integration of passions, gifts and style. Bruce has been equipping leaders and building gift-based passion-driven ministry teams for over 40 years. He is aligning the body of Christ for faithful, fruitful and fulfilling service that is making God famous. Download Expanded Bio >>
