Sunday Morning Worship Experience

Join us for a fun, relevant and powerful Worship Experience where you can encounter God in a meaningful way! We keep our services to just 70 minutes long. We do this to honor your time while still putting God first each week. The word “long” seems misplaced because in no way do our services feel long but instead leave you longing for more.

Our worship experience is dynamic, powerful, and passionate! We simply believe if we draw near to God, He will draw near to us. Therefore our goal is to experience God’s presence each and every service. In fact, we believe our services are incomplete unless we feel God’s presence is there in a tangible way.

We offer a safe, fun, age appropriate children’s program at Connect Kids. We care for infants through grade 5. Our staff looks forward to exceeding your expectations each week as we strive to teach your children from God’s Word.

We hope to see you in one of our services! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at office@weconnect.cc.

Pastors

Pastor-Deryck-Website

Deryck Frye – PD

Lead Pastor

Pastor Deryck Frye, born May 22, 1968 in Manchester, New Hampshire, Oral Roberts University class of '92, has been preaching the gospel since he was 17 years old. Pastor Deryck left the business world after a short time to enter the ministry full time in 1994.

Deryck's double-dose of God's anointing on his life has led him to teach that in order to make a difference we must be different in every way. He passionately ministers to others, whether in worship or word, out of his own devotion to the Lord in fresh, insightful ways with authority and wisdom.

Married to Stacy in 1991, they have four remarkable children, two of which are pursuing their dreams of also one day working in ministry. And although ministry life can be time consuming and challenging, Pastor and Stacy have been able to maintain a vibrant marriage and close-knit family. They believe they are called to encourage and build strong relationships, strong marriages, and strong families.

Rodrigo DeJesus – PDG

Associate Pastor

PDg was born in the city of Ponta Grossa, PR, Brazil and was the youngest of three children. Born and raised in a Christian home, with a Pastor as his father, church has always been his second home.

At only 4 years old, he started playing on his brother's piano when no one was looking. Evident that he had an amazing gift, his mother enrolled him in piano school at the age of 5, and by the time he was 7 years old he performed alone in a concert playing Beethoven's classic, "Per Elisa". It wasn't long after that his teachers realized he had enhanced tonal recognition and memorization, meaning he didn't need to read the music. He finished piano lessons and conservatory at age of 12.

When he was 15, his father was called to pastor a Portuguese speaking church in Framingham, MA and so they moved to the USA. In 2005, when his father moved to Atlanta, GA to help a church in need, PDg stayed here with his wife Jussarah and found this ministry. They felt at home right away and he's been serving here since.

They have two handsome boys, Lucas and David. PDg enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, playing piano, playing guitar, listening to music, having fun with water and snow sports, and cooking.
