Senior Pastor Kyle Horner
Kyle is certainly passionate about getting people connected to God, His people, and His purpose for their lives.
With over 20 years of ministry and leadership experience, Kyle's commitment and ability to present the timeless truths of God in a relevant and practical way has seen countless lives impacted. It is this message of freedom centered within the grace and love of God that maintains the power to set people free. It is this truth that compels Kyle to bring the hope of the gospel to people both locally and globally.
Kyle is a native of the South Jersey area where he still maintains a residence. After completing college at the University of Richmond, Kyle took on a Youth Pastor position at a church in Richmond, Va. Shortly after completing his time in that role, he went to Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary to pursue a Masters of Divinity degree. During his time studying, Kyle took on the Associate Pastor's job for Come Alive Church in Medford, NJ. It was also during this period of time that he met Danielle and they were married in 1993.
In 1998, Kyle and Danielle seeing the need in the suburbs of Philadelphia for a culturally relevant, grace-centered, Bible-based church started The River of Life Worship Center on Sunday October 18, 1998 at a tiny theater with 32 people in attendance. That tiny beginning has become The Connect Church. The Connect Church is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, and multi-generational church which is focused on bringing a living Jesus to a dying world. Through multiple campuses, online connection, and compassion centered initiatives The Connect Church is reaching local communities with the tangible love of Christ.
Kyle and Danielle have one son, Jacob, and a West Highland White Terrier named Louie.
