2 Take the things you heard me say in front of many other witnesses and pass them on to faithful people who are also capable of teaching others.

Who We Are
We Are THE CHURCH CONNECTED
Origin Of The Church Connected
The Church Connected was born in 2006, from the understanding and realization that there are a lot of people have decided that they aren't interested in or don't have the time to go to an in-person, brick & mortar church.
There are specifics within those two general reasons, these people still wanted and/or needed a spiritual community, that is, a connection where they can get prayer, teaching, motivation, encouragement and engagement.
So, starting with a small website and email newsletters, we sent out devotionals and bible studies and moved to texting and Social Media in order to meet these needs and the needs of anyone seeking a closer, practical relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
