Who We Are

"The little church on the hill."

Formerly known as Sharon Forest Baptist Church, we are now Connect Church.

Connect Church is a small, growing church in east Charlotte, NC. We are passionate about Jesus Christ and the Word of God.

We believe Jesus Christ is God's Son, and that Jesus died on the Cross and rose again to save each of us for our sins. He is "The Way, the Truth, and the Life." Through Christ alone we can have eternal life with Him and a more abundant life filled with His Love and Peace.

Connect Church's Main Pastor is Rev. Randy Lankford. Pastor Juan Pacheco serves the Spanish ministry, and Pastor Bob Page serves as Associate Pastor. On our staff, Makayla Brown serves as our Music Leader and Matt Patterson is our Sound Technician.
