Meet Pastor Chris & Amy Connell

Chris was born in Springfield, Missouri while his parents were attending Evangel College. He moved with this family to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1976 where Chris spent his teen and childhood years. Upon graduating from high school in 1988 Chris attended Southeastern College in Lakeland, Florida and graduated in 1992 with a degree in Pastoral Ministries. Three years later he married his college sweetheart, Amy, and moved her to Huntsville, Alabama where Chris had taken a position as a youth and associate pastor of an Assemblies of God church. While in Alabama, Chris was ordained as an Assemblies of God minister.

Amy was born in Rochester, New York and after making several moves, settled in Raleigh, North Carolina with her family in the early 80's. It was in 1989 that she met Chris while attending Southeastern College. Interestingly enough, Chris and Amy share similar geographical backgrounds, since both families are from the upstate New York area.

Chris and Amy both committed their lives to the Lord at an early age and with that commitment came a call for full-time ministry. It wasn't until long after their dating years that they both realized that they shared a similar calling. While pastoring in Alabama, the Connells began to feel an urgency to take steps toward establishing an evangelistic ministry. With that in mind, they moved to Chris' home town and began Way of the Cross Ministries, INC., a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, with the goal of seeing more persons in this generation come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ than any previous generation. Since their commitment to being in full-time evangelism, Chris and Amy have preached in church revivals, youth camps, retreats, campus clubs, school assemblies, prisons, kids camps, rescue missions, outreaches, and overseas in Haiti. They plan to travel all over the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to win the lost and set captives free. They also hope to start a family and raise their children in the faith.
