During the pandemic when churches were closing Pastor Joey was reminded of "The fireside chats addressed by Franklin D. Roosevelt who spoke via radio to the fears and concern of the the American people between 1933 and 1944. It encouraged the American people in a time of crises Pastor Joey and Shannon decided to do something similar and called it "Fireside Meetups" There is just something about getting around a fire and talking about Jesus and worshiping Him.
Pastor Joey and Shannon decided to do something similar and called it "Fireside Meetups" What started off as a small bible study of a hand full of people, God started to Grow. Though “fireside meetups” was the name of the gatherings, “Connection House was the name idea for a church. Connection House – connecting with God, creating community.
Connection House was a God given dream of Joey and Shannon Tellez to reach people right where they are within the community. To form a community of people of support and love without judgment or stipulations. By creating a gathering with a home base first, we've created a welcoming feel from the moment you join us. In forming this style of meeting, we are able to truly reach people exactly where they are and allow God's love to move through us so people really do become a part of our family. Our ultimate goal, is that people really do feel a part of this extended "family" we are creating within Connection House so that each individual feels the true, unwavering, unconditional love that only God can show. Through this Ministry, the prayer will always be for people to connect to the community we are creating, feel completely loved and to build a lifelong relationship with Jesus.
Shannon and I have been in ministry for several years. We have three Daughters: Veronica Faith, Madison Grace and Brooklyn Joy. I became a credentialed minister in 2016 through the Assembly of God which was a childhood dream come true since I had felt called to ministry when I was five years old. Me and Shannon have led in many capacities of ministry through the years and are well rounded in many facets of Leadership and church ministry. In the past we had led a Church in South Pasadena as Campus Pastors for a year and a half and later were associate Pastors in the City of Duarte California for almost 2 years when we felt the call to begin having meetings in our own backyard. A small bible study began in 2019 prior to becoming an associate pastor in Duarte, during corvid we prayerful made the decision along with the blessing of New Life AG to continue our Fireside Meetings in the Backyard in the hopes of planting a Church.
We are so incredibly excited to see what the Lord has for the future they have been very prayerful, believe and know that God is going to do the incredible. Their prayer is to reach the lost and to see Gods Kingdom Grow through the power of his Holy Spirit. They believe that God wants to use his followers to raise up followers that truly hunger and live a transformed life through the power of Jesus Christ.
