It all started with a very simple approach. Truck drivers come to the ports for work, but sometimes, they have to wait days or even weeks for loads. Because of that, the ports really function like small cities. The drivers eat there and congregate together to pass the time.

At Connect we value the local church. While we value discipleship, and practice it, we believe it is as part of a local church that ministry is best learned and developed.

By Uncategorized

From the beginning, God desired for the earth to be full of people who worshipped him, who came to him in the right way. The Garden of Eden and the temple are both examples of God creating a way to approach him. It reminds us that God has not forsaken his plan.

From creation to new creation, God provided a means by which he could be approached. When Jesus died, the temple was torn in two and now he is the final sacrifice and the way to God. Jesus will be worshipped by all nations and when we seek to live our lives to reach the nations with the Gospel, we are finding ourselves in God’s trajectory—we are his people who reach out to the nations through his church.
