Greg Davis and Wendy Davis~Lovell were the founding and senior pastors of The Connection, which was planted in 2008. God birthed the vision in their hearts that this church community should be a place where everyone is welcome because nobody is perfect and that is okay. We knew we were to be a church where everyone feels loved and everyone feels accepted. We were to have genuine freedom in worship, not a specific culture, and then share that passion with people all over our community, our county, our state, our country and around the world.

In August of 2015, while Pastors Greg and Wendy were on a mission trip in Turkey, the Lord called Pastor Greg home at an early age. Through this Pastor Wendy, with the strength of the Lord, continued on with the mission and the vision of The Connection and amazing things continue to happen!

The Lord saw fit to bring James Lovell into Pastor Wendy’s life and they were married in September of 2017. But GOD!!!! What a blessing Pastor James is! His passion for the Lord and his genuine love for people has been a blessing to The Connection. Pastor James now serves as the Adult Life Pastor and brings much wisdom and experience with him as a former pastor, teacher and counselor. Together Pastors James and Wendy continue the mission and the vision of The Connection Church by loving God

and loving people.

We truly believe that The Best Is Yet To Come!


We have a passion for people, our city and our world. Our culture and leadership is characterized by worship, the love of God, and a genuine call to ministry. These core values have been shaped by our rich history of great co-workers and energy; always pressing forward in our call to love God and love others.
