Missions

Out of our affection for who God is and what He has done, we respond to His call on our lives to love Him and love people. People all over the world are looking for peace in their lives. The Good News is that in following Jesus Christ, people are granted a kind of peace that is beyond comprehension. Knowing the power of having Christ in our lives, Connect Church is committed to introducing people everywhere to the Good News of peace in Christ Jesus. Symbolically, Acts 1:8 is to be interpreted as “tell people about Jesus’ peace in your city (Jerusalem), your state (Judea), your nation (Samaria) and the whole world (end of the earth.)

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded of you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” - Matthew 28:19-20

KID’S HOPE USA:

Connect partners with Miller Elementary school through Kid’s Hope USA to provide mentors. Too many students stand just one close adult relationship away from thriving in school and in life. This gap hinders education; loneliness obstructs learning. Yet every church’s most abundant resource is people. Kids Hope USA provides structure, training, support, and resources designed for use in public schools by churches to give kids what they need most—hope and love from a mentor.

Kids Hope USA builds life-changing relationships one at a time: One Child. One Hour. One School. One Church.

Thousands of prayer partners provide a solid foundation for the work. Seed Company is at the cutting edge of bringing the Bible to people who have never had God’s Word in a language they understand.
