We Need One Another

Connect face-to-face with your small group for 40 min each week through zoom, where you’ll have the opportunity to CONNECT WITH FUN people , have encouragement, prayer, and knowing you are not alone.

Our Mission.

Welcome to Connect in 40

We need other people in our lives for optimal mental, emotional, and all around GREAT health.

An authentic like-minded positive community not only helps us achieve our goals but empowers us to make better life decisions.

We were NOT made to live this life alone and all of us fail when we try to.


Have you ever felt burned out from hosting or running a small group? Personally, I was having one small group with 30 people over at my house in person and we constantly had to clean everything, provide tons of food and then clean up. We had to draft lesson plans and come up with discussion questions. It would just be so overwhelming. So I thought, what if we can come up with a way to make it easier but still be able to connect over meaningful teachings and fellowship in a small group? That’s how the idea of Connect in 40 was born, a virtual, scalable group that can help reach more people.

We can connect and share life together in just 40 minutes. We're going to do it Wednesday nights at 7pm Eastern, so that would be 4pm Pacific. And so here's how the schedule will look:


Honesty within your group is essential, yes, but there’s a difference between growing together and oversharing with too many people. Take comfort in knowing that you can be vulnerable in a safe space, and among a small number of men or women committed to honoring one another’s privacy.
