H.I.S. BridgeBuilders-San Antonio is a movement of God uniting Christians across cities to transform urban communities through education, health, employment, and spiritual development for the glory of God. The organization is a 501 (c) (3). The ministry was established in 2006.

The work is centered on San Antonio's near east side, in the East Meadows (formerly Wheatley Courts) area, where per capita income is one third that of the remainder of San Antonio, where 74.7% of the children live below the federal poverty level, and where 53% of the adults have not graduated from High School.

We believe that the strength of H.I.S. BridgeBuilders-San Antonio is the emphasis we place on relationships―a strong and deepening relationship with God, and growing relationships with one another. Each activity, event and program is aimed at these growing relationships.
