Evangel Missionaries & Ministries
The Connells sponsored a child in Dominican Republic for many years. But after they met the child, God began to draw their hearts deeper towards Jesus and towards the people there. The Lord started growing their willingness to serve him on the international mission field. They 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 their own that utilized their gifts and talents to impact all of Latin America. After living in the Dominican Republic for a time, they now lead Converge's Regional Impact Team and travel across the region.

We are asking God for a gospel movement among the 15 largest cities in Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia that will also plant gospel communities in at least five unreached villages around each of these cities. Poznan, Poland is one of those 15 largest cities with a population of 1,000,000 people. In Poznan there are only 1,200 evangelicals and 17 evangelical churches, which is one church for every 58,000 people. Poznan is considered unreached and in need of a gospel movement.
