About Us


Our vision is to see Empowered collaborative ministries, developing leaders for gospel-centered impact.

Who we are. 

MissionConnect is a 501c3 business as mission (BAM) platform in Colorado Springs. in 2018, I met with co-founding partner, Alan (pictured standing left) set out to take an existing and successful model in central Mexico and courageously initiate this ministry – combining partner relationships with marketplace profits to propel international ministry training opportunities. What has transpired has been nothing short of miraculous. God has allowed us to form an incredible team of donors, church relationships, businessmen, and volunteers to make this vision a reality. We now have formed multiple strategic partnerships with local and international organizations creating a more sustainable, gospel-centered ministry which impact the communities they serve.

What motivates us. 

The question which started it all: How do we keep our young ministers from leaving the field and never returning?

MissionConnect is driven to respond to the call for long-term, sustainable and generational funding for international ministry training. The ultimate goal is seeing the training of our ministry people turn into sustainable ministry impact in the communities where they serve. Truly, a “Train and Sustain” model.


– 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 through 4 streams:

1. Donor and partner acquisition

2. Short-term real estate investments

3. Home service projects and volunteer involvement

4. Through writing grants and foundations



Where we work. 

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