Jared Pickard is our lead pastor. He has served at Connect City Church since 2011. Growing up as a pastor's kid, Jared was saved at the tender age of 8, but went through a period of rebellion in his early 20's that left him addicted to drugs and alcohol. He found Jesus again in Freedom Counseling Services in Lafayette, Georgia... where he also found his wife, Bonnie. They live in the historic Taylor House in Summerville with their daughter, Justice.
Keith Kersnowski serves as our Worship Pastor. He's been leading congregations in worship since he was a teenager. Keith has been delivered out of the bondage of addiction and proudly shares his testimony to help deliver others from the grip of alcohol and drugs. He is married to Jessica, and they have three daughters: Cadence, Kennedy and Caroline.
Ethan Bradley is our Youth Pastor and brings lots of energy and creativity to the mix. His passion for instilling the Word of God into our students is inspiring to kids and adults alike. He's been pursuing a degree in divinity through the Christian Leadership Institute since 2016, works at Smith Ironworks, and plays a pretty mean mandolin! He is married to Ariel and they have two boys, Jonah and Elliot.
Melanie Sullivan is our Children's Pastor and brings with her 25+ years of administrative experience plus 17 years as a homeschool teacher. She is passionate about leading our kiddos to Christ and we are so lucky to have her working so diligently every week on their behalf! She lives in Summerville with her husband Greg and their two kids, Noah and Anna.
