Connecting Ministries would not exist if it weren’t for our Heavenly Father. We want to glorify Him in all we do. No matter what denomination, background, age, or ethnicity, connecting individuals within the church and community is one way we can live out the mission of Jesus Christ: growing the kingdom of God. There is no greater way to live out His mission than coming together as a body of believers praying, discipling, and ministering to each other and the lost. Essentially, living life with each other and living out His Word in all we do!

Connecting Ministries was founded in 2015 to come alongside churches, organizations, and individuals, equipping and empowering them to live out God’s Word.

Our vision and prayer:
• Provide the opportunity for individuals to come together and participate in biblical conferences that will provide them with a safe environment where they can connect and grow spiritually
• Work with local non-profit organizations to meet the needs of their clients through counseling and small groups
• Provide support in finding the right speaker for your next women’s event. Whether it be one of our Connecting Ministries speakers or someone else, we want to make sure that speaker fits the needs of your women. Request more info through the Contact Us page.
• Provide consultation and training in women’s ministry and discipleship and grow into other areas of ministry. You can request more info regarding our Women’s Leadership Summit and trainings through the Contact Us page.

In the process of hosting a women’s conference, we will partner with local churches to host these conferences, giving the church the opportunity to reach out to their community and giving attendees a church to follow up with after the event. During the conference, we will partner with local non-profit organizations (e.g. pregnancy center, women’s shelter) in order to serve the community as well as connect the organizations with women and churches in their area.
…The Bible is the inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God and is the sole guide for faith and practice.

All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. 2 Timothy 3: 16-17

…There is only one true God, existing as three Persons in one: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Spirit (The Holy Spirit).

In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. John 1: 1-5

…Salvation is found only through Jesus Christ by faith alone.

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. Ephesians 2:8-9

…In being committed to The Great Commission – to go and make disciples.

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

I came to know Christ later in life and have been growing my relationship with Him every day. I lead a busy and sometimes chaotic life but have been happily married, for nine years, to the one who showed me to Christ. I am the wife to Ryan and mother to Timothy (15), Peyton (8), Layla (5), and Mia (3). I am passionate about sharing the Word of God and walking with others as we live out our messy lives.
I am a sinner saved by grace since December 1974, at the age of 29. I was a church goer, but I didn’t have a personal relationship with Christ. I knew all the right answers, but didn’t know the Messiah. Since that time, I am a new creation in Him. He changed my whole being–my outlook on life–the way I see others. He gave me a heart for hurting women. My prayer is that He will use me in this ministry to touch the lives of women who are suffering.
I am happily married to Ryan Adams and we have a sweet dog named Charlie. I love all things creative and really enjoy using the skills and gifts with which the Lord has blessed me to promote the Gospel. I am so grateful for the salvation Christ has extended to me and am excited to be a part of Connecting Ministries as we extend Christ’s love to others.
I am a sinner who asked God into his heart at a young age and who is thankful for his grace and forgiveness. I am husband to a beautiful women named Cheryl and father to four crazy kids: Timothy (15), Peyton (8), Layla (5), and Mia (3). I have been working with Turner Construction since graduating from Auburn University in 2002. My family and I moved to Owensboro, KY in 2010 so that I could help manage the construction of the new Owensboro Health Hospital. I believe the move was an opportunity given to us by God to help our personal growth in Him and to help build bigger things (not structures). God has continued to open doors for Cheryl and I that allows His work to be done through us. We continue to grow as Christians and as a family. I am fearfully excited to see what God has planned for my family and me.

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Kent Moore, and we are soon to welcome a third sweet boy into our growing family. I have earned my Masters as a Physician Assistant and am currently using my degree to volunteer at a local pregnancy resource center, where I can share the good news of the Gospel with young women and men seeking answers. God has given me a passion for women’s ministry, and I have enjoyed serving both youth and adults where God has lead me. I am privileged to be a part of Connecting Ministries as we follow God’s command of equipping the saints.
God leads us if we’ll let Him. That has been my experience. Growing up, I was blessed with Christian parents who took me to church and encouraged me to pursue a personal relationship with Jesus. As a young woman fresh out of college, I prided myself on being independent and building a business. Through a series of events and mistakes, I came to realize that I needed to relinquish control of my life to God. Since taking that leap of faith (and claiming Joshua 1:8-9), each day has proven to be an adventure! I met my husband, moved to a new state, landed in a mission-minded church, traveled abroad, and found work that I’m passionate about (helping refugees and serving women).
