What is the Connect?
At The Connect our mission is to inform, lead, and raise up middle school students to be disciples of Jesus Christ in their daily lives. We connect students to the love of God through weekly studies of the Bible, empowering the students to take what The Word says and put it into action. We teach that having a relationship with Jesus doesn’t have to be complicated, but simple. Jesus calls us to love others and trust Him in all things. Overthinking only creates doubt, and when we start to doubt the promises God made for us, we fall. The Connect of Valley Bible Fellowship is a place for junior high students to experience the simple, yet amazing love of Jesus and the plan He has for them specifically.
Our Middle School grades 6th-8th, meet in Room 36, located behind (west of) Station 3:16.
Sundays at 9:00 am and 11:00 am and Wednesday at 7 pm

Cody Ford: My name is Cody Ford, and I am the Middle School Director at VBF. I have had the pleasure of working in every youth ministry here at this church, and I must say that there is never a dull moment. God has been preparing me to be in this ministry for the past few years. I know that because He is using every talent and passion that I have to love on these kids. My personality is very energetic and crazy, so, naturally, God led me to The Connect Middle School Ministry. My goal is to challenge these kids to fall more in love with Jesus Christ as I pursue the same for my life.
