How does Connect work?

In an effort to fight loneliness, we give our clients the option of being paired up with a local church body that they can CONNECT with:

  • We present the option of Connect to our clients when applicable.
  • If a client is interested, we pass on their name, current residence, phone #, and email to a church nearest to them within our Connect Church Network.
  • Then, the church starts the Connect process:
    • Set up a time to meet, or personally invite them to church or a church event.
    • Get to know them.
    • Build a trusting relationship.
    • Integrate them into the body of Christ.
