Pastor Pedro and Rute Pires
In 1999, pastors Pedro and Rute moved to Canada to pastor a local ethnic church. Led by God and due to his evangelistic call, in 2004 Pastor Pedro planted a church in Benguela, Angola, Africa. Today he gives spiritual leadership to 30+ churches in Angola.
After a couple of years in Canada, he felt that God was leading him to establish an English-speaking congregation. In 2014, together with a group of young families, they planted Connect Church in Northeast Edmonton.
Pastors Pedro and Rute are passionate about helping people to know God, discover their God-given purpose, and pursue it to the fullest.
