Connect Conference was started by the Assemblies of God Korean District Council (AGKDC) with the vision of bridging the gap between first and second generation pastors in immigrant Korean­American churches. Over the years, the heart of Connect has expanded to empower and equip pastors and lay leaders across denominations, churches and generations and to provide opportunities for churches to network and endeavor together.

We believe that God calls all of us to make disciples wherever we work, live, and have influence and that regardless of vocation, gender, culture, God desires to use willing and dedicated followers to build His kingdom here on earth. We pray that through Connect pastors, leaders, and ministries would become united in love and be able to put aside our differences since we are bound together by the blood of Christ. We also pray that you would gain practical knowledge and spiritual wisdom to lead your ministries, your families, and your circles of influence to know Jesus, to be Jesus to their communities, and to shine hope in our broken world.
