Connect Youth Ministries

Connect Youth Ministries is the youth ministry of Evangel Temple in Springfield, MO. We are here to CONNECT students to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Through 4 unique values we can do this; WORSHIP, CONNECT, SERVE, and INVITE


Connect Service
We all crave a sense of belonging, and have a need to be apart of something bigger than ourselves. During our Connect Services you can experience the Creator of our universe, a God who wants a relationship with you! Each service gives opportunity to; Worship our incredible God as well as Connect with other students who are on similar paths as you.
Wednesday: 6:45-8pm in The Youth House

Part of our worship includes digging deep into what we believe, IMMERSING ourselves in the Word of God. That's why we have Immerse. We take time every week to discuss what the Bible actually says and what it means. In groups we tackle hard questions and together we search for truth.


Small Groups
We're all created to need others. There's no need to live this crazy life alone. God knew that so He gave us each other. Small groups are a place where everyone will know your name. We want to help you find the perfect small group for you.

2nd Saturday Connect @ ICO
Every 2nd Saturday of the month we head North to help out at Inner City Outreach. Jesus did not come to be served but to serve, following His example we do the same!

We want everyone at ET to find a place to serve and lead. Everybody has something to give and is a perfect fit somewhere. We believe God made you with a purpose. If you are interested in Leadership at Connect please contact us!


Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost, big or small, rich or poor, whether you are super attractive or just have a great personality this is a place for you! No matter who you are we want you to feel welcome. We all have problems, issues, weaknesses, and pasts but that is what makes our God so great…we are all broken, But there is a God who loves us exactly the way we are! This is your invitation to come meet Him.
