Co-pastors of Connection Community Church, Kari and Alan Jones are ordained United Methodist Elders who pastored individually before hearing the call to plant a church in Middletown, DE and lead the congregation together. They deliver the sermon in a back-and-forth style that complements the contemporary and dynamic worship. They started Connection Church with a “screen” made of a sheet with two dowel rods and a borrowed projector. Over the years, they have developed a worship design process that works.
