While attending Biblical Theological Seminary in Hatfield, Pennsylvania, Pastor Bruce served as an associate pastor at the Remnant Presbyterian Church and as a campus staff leader at New York University. Starting with much prayer and less than a handful of students in the late summer of 1995, the Remnant Christian Fellowship soon grew to 60-80 students. A sister fellowship at the Parsons School of Design soon followed. As God continued to guide and speak to him, Pastor Bruce was convicted and encouraged to plant a campus/young adult church in Chelsea in the fall of 2002. Almost a year later, in October of 2003, Remnant Westside Church was born!
