Story

The Journey

The Connells sponsored a child in Juan Tomas, Dominican Republic for many years, and in 2014 our family went there to meet him. During and after that visit, God burned into our hearts a love for the people and a growing willingness to serve him on the 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.

The Vision

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

The Strategy

Global trends point towards this season in history being a time of God unleashing the global south, especially Latino believers, to be the next wave of fulfilling the great commission in key parts of the unreached world where US Citizens are no longer welcome. God is beginning to send them and we need to help prepare them. As a regional leader in Latin America, my team is focused on inspiring & equipping Latino leaders to impact least-reached people groups around the world through their ministries. 

The Connells' Role

David is leading Converge's Regional Impact team for Latin America & the Caribbean with the following focus:

  1. Identify and coordinate training events with local / national leaders (utilizing organization & individual partners with specific needed expertise)
  2. Come alongside movement leaders and help them leverage their ministry to multiply gospel movement impact among least-reached people groups
  3. Raise up and help develop future leaders

Stephanie is teaching English at a rural Christian school with the objective of developing the next generation of leaders to love Jesus and have a passion for least-reached peoples. 

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