Our Pastor

How’s it going?  My name is Tony, and I'm a real guy who doesn't always have it all together. Chances are you're reading this because you're curious about Connection Church or are looking for a church in Medina and figure it's a good idea to know a little about its Lead Pastor. Perhaps I should make sure what I'm about to say is polished and professional so you can make a credible evaluation about joining us this weekend.

Then again, I don't  just want to sell you on this church. There's a lot I can tell you about how these people are amazing and will make you feel right at home. You'd know that if you hung out with them for even just a few weeks.

The main thing I do want you to know is how I'm so thankful that my wife and three kids get to be a part of Connection Church. We get the same treatment that you'll get - where it's okay to not be "okay" today, and yet there's an opportunity to grow with a real God who is working through real people. We've all somehow realized that religion or “Sunday-only Christianity” isn't what it's all about.

Reread that, especially you're looking for a "put on a fake smile" religious experience. We're not interested in playing the church game, which is why you can always come hang out with us and feel like family from the first day. It just takes too much energy to be fake, especially when authenticity with God and each other matters. I can’t tell you how freeing it is for my family to experience that and give back to that.

Again, this isn't a sales pitch… this is just me sharing my heart.  I didn't grow up a Christian, but had someone share Jesus with me in a way that I was able to hear it. That means I always need to remember I play a role in helping others take their next step with the Lord, and why Connection Church is the kind of congregation and community I'd want to be a part of even if I wasn't the pastor.

I hope you’ll use this weekend as an excuse to come check it out. There’s enough robotic religion out there and I’d rather spend my time on connections that really matter – with Jesus Christ, each other, you, our region, and the whole world. Maybe that sounds like something up your alley, too.

- Tony Myles, Lead Pastor of Connection Church
