Due to Connie’s father’s military career, she moved frequently and has lived all over the world. Friends invited her to church from time to time and in one season, she lived near her grandmother, whose neighbor ran a “Good Neighbor Club” where Biblical truths finally started to make sense. The seeds planted during this season, began to grow and in her early 20’s she and some friends began “church shopping.” They found a Foursquare church to join, and she married her husband, Dave, shortly after this. A few years later, she had a dream about her family swimming in a river towards some unknown “important” thing, her son was exhausted so the family climbed onto the river bank. In the dream, she told Dave that whatever they were swimming for wasn’t worth their son’s life- suddenly she had a revelation that Christ was the only thing worth living for and that needed to be her focus.
Connie’s ministry passion is for women to be free to use their gifts and talents for God. She enjoys being a part of equipping them to serve their families, friends, and their communities.
As an “outdoors” gal- Connie has competed in Triathlons, gone parachuting, river rafting, and had other adrenaline pumping adventures. She also loves to learn, study and read.
