Meet some of the leadership team

Mark and Terri Busch have been at Connect Church since July of 1999. They are both graduates of OKWU in Bartlesville, OK. They’ve been married since May 1998 and have two sons – Jack and Lance. Mark is the Lead Pastor at Connect Church while Terri serves as both a Worship Leader and the Communications Team Leader. They have such passion to reach and serve the lost. The fire that resonates within both of them for Ponca City is contagious and spreads wherever they go. Their goal for Connect Church is to make a welcoming environment that allows opportunities for every person, while drawing near to God with prayer and church family surrounding them with each step.
Kenneth and Aprille Ostler serve as our Youth, Children and Connections Pastors. They joined the Connect Church team in January 2020. They have been serving as Youth Pastors since 2016 and are both graduates of Evangel University in Springfield, MO. They have been married since January 2017, and have two sons – KJ (Kenneth Jr.) and Kendon. They provide an exciting yet challenging environment for each and every student by bringing life and relevance to the Bible and what it means to be a Christian in society today. Their goal is to start simple changes to the youth that will help provide understanding and focus to their lives. Kenneth is serving as the Children’s Pastor as well. His passion for seeing the next generation grow closer to God is evident by the way he leads this ministry! Aprille serves as the Connections Pastor. This position is a new addition to Connect Church. The Connections Pastor is here to help align staff and lead the congregation to a genuine sense of belonging, involvement and spiritual growth at Connect Church. Her goal is to do this by meeting people where they are and leading them to their next step with our Church mission in mind – to CONNECT.
Ashlee Logan serves as our Office Manager at Connect Church and has worked diligently to keep us organized since 2015. She has a son named Michael and also serves as our Worship Leader. Her God-given passion for worship has been with her since she was a kid and she has had the opportunity to lead worship in the community since 2005. Her goal is to help the congregation seek the Lord and strive to become closer with Him each and every week.
