The Connect Church
On October 18th, 1998, our Senior Pastors, Kyle and Danielle, felt led to begin The Connect Church (previously named The River of Life Worship Center) in a local theater with 32 people in attendance. Over the last 2 decades, their dedication to helping people know Who Jesus truly is has become their greatest passion. Just as they have experienced His grace, forgiveness, and unconditional love, they are devoted to helping others experience His freedom. They believe God’s Word and His wholeness can bring life to people’s callings and change to people’s communities of influence. As they celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary this year, they understand that the great pains and healing they have walked through together as a couple have given them the testimony of redemption they now share with gratitude and joy.

In addition to casting vision and bringing leadership to our Global church campuses, they love connecting to people as the “Mom & Dad” of our House!
Some of Pastor Kyle’s hobbies include creating recipes & cooking for his family, collecting church artifacts, traveling with their son, Jake, mentoring global influencers, hunting for Disney pins, and playing with his Westie, Louie. Pastor Danielle enjoys interior design & staging, finding architectural salvage pieces, writing about her journey, watching & reading a good “who-done-it”, and walking the boards in Ocean City, NJ with her family.
