Our Story

Brian and Dawn Roussel moved to the City of Gulfport, seven years ago  with a heart from God to plant a church that loves people. In 2015 they launched Connect Fellowship Church. This church has been impactful to lives all around the city. From serving at every city event, to reaching people who are forgotten. Brian and Dawn's heart is see people's family tree changed because of the love of Jesus.
