About Us


Our vision is to see EMPOWERED COLLABORATIVE MINISTRIES DEVELOPING christian leaders for gospel-centered IMPACT

Who we are. 

See, I have done a new thing in the land…these words from God’s word rang in my head day after day as I pondered the requests to start a business as mission (BAM) project in Colorado Springs. My co-founder and I duly followed the move of the Spirit and set out on a journey to start this non-profit, propelling marketplace profits toward international ministry training opportunities. What has transpired has been nothing short of miraculous. God has allowed us to form an incredible team of directors, volunteers, and businessmen to make this vision a reality. The Lord Jesus be praised for His Spirit and His steady nudging, constantly guiding us to new avenues – giving us the ability to act in focused compassion. We hear His voice, and follow!

What motivates us. 

MissionConnect is driven to respond to the call for long-term, sustainable and generational funding for international ministry training.


– We practice prayer as a life-giving source of connection to Jesus (John 15:6)

– We uphold professional business practices focused on integrity and workmanship (Titus 2:7-8) 

– We are workers of God’s kingdom – called to proclaim His name unto the world (Mark 16:15)

How we do this. 

MissionConnect processes its goals by pursuing short-term real estate investments, donor acquisitions and foundational grants, creating the necessary funding for building and outreach projects. We engage and empower local volunteers in sharing their serving gifts to forward mission funding. We compassionately seek enduring partner relationships to drive Christian leader development!

Where is our impact zone? 

MissionConnect carries out its mission aims through a partnership with Youth Missions International (YMI). This training organization, based in Chicago, supplies our necessary ministry training and logistical processes – setting up the coordinating church partnerships and certification of national trainers to amplify discipleship. Currently we have been engaged to begin sustaining training centers for long-term contextualized success. In the past three years we have trained in several sites including: Mexico, Peru, Nepal – as well as, many domestic locations.
