Our Journey

The Connells sponsored a child in Dominican Republic for many years. But after we met the child, God began to draw our hearts deeper towards Jesus and towards the people there. The Lord started growing our willingness to serve him on the international mission field. We continued to visit the village annually and God began opening unexpected doors that made it clear he had a vision, a plan, and a purpose greater than our own that utilized our gifts and talents to impact all of Latin America. After living in the Dominican Republic for a time, we now lead Converge's Regional Impact Team and travel across the region.

The Vision

We are asking God for a gospel movement among every least-reached people group in our generation. 

The Strategy

We want to catalyze gospel movements in least-reached communities in Latin America and beyond by developing and equipping transformational Latin American leaders who also want to impact least-reached people groups. In this season of history, God is unleashing the global south, including Latin American believers, and He is using the "north's" past experiences to help them succeed. 

The Connells' Role

Lead Converge's Regional Impact team for Latin America.

Our Regional Impact team has the following focus:

  1. Equip Latin American leaders to lead strategic disciple-making movement projects among targeted unreached people groups
  2. Come alongside Latin American leaders over time to provide coaching, mentoring, training, and connections
  3. Coordinate strategic training events and provide follow-up to ensure proper application / implementation


We need many prayer warriors and financial partners. Please seek the Lord's leading as to how he may want you to join us in this kingdom work!
