John Martens, Lead Pastor
Tiffany Martens, Worship Leader
John and Tiffany Martens are NAMB-approved Mission Service Corps missionaries who moved to the Greater Vancouver area in 2003 to start The Connection.
John and Tiffany are originally from Manitoba, Canada. They moved to Texas, where their daughter Mikaela was born, to pastor a church and then to Indiana, where their son Adam was born, to pastor another church. While in Indiana, God called John and Tiffany to British Columbia to plant a new church.
John has his PhD in Physics.
Kyle Lawrence moved to Maple Ridge in January of 2007 to serve with The Connection full-time as The Connection's Youth Pastor, while also assisting Pastor John in various other outreach tasks.
Kyle grew up in St. Louis, Missouri where he produced a television series while still in high school. After producing 26 half-hour episodes, he sensed God was calling him to work alongside John and Tiffany at The Connection.
Kyle has spoken to thousands of teenagers around the United States and has also directed a couple feature films with well-known teen stars.
