Cole Kirkpatrick

Director of Bridge Students

Cole started working at the Church at Ross Bridge in March, 2020!


Cole is a 2021 graduate of Birmingham-Southern College,  B.A. in Religion.


Cole is originally from Franklin, TN, a town in suburban Nashville. He grew up Methodist and felt a call to youth ministry in high school. He has patiently pursued this calling and has experience in missions, children’s ministry, and summer camp culture. Outside of hiking, watching baseball games (go Cardinals!), and being swamped with research from his college courses, Cole enjoys experiencing new things. His guilty pleasure is watching the show NCIS on netflix, and he LOVES to travel.

Cole believes that the next generation will be the greatest, most intelligent, and most powerful generation and he hopes to help students grow in their relationship with God as they pursue a life God has called them to live. His favorite piece of scripture right now is Ezekiel 1:1-28. Oh, and Cole is extremely competitive and loves a good challenge!
