Dr. Connell Lewis is the pastor and founder of Resurrecting Faith World Ministries (formerly known as the Church of Minneapolis), a non-denominational church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has been in ministry for more than twenty years. Dr. Lewis was a Minnesota Gopher basketball player and graduate of the University of Minnesota. He received his Master's of Divinity from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota and his Doctor of Theology from Andersonville Seminary in Atlanta, Georgia. 

In addition to pastoring, Dr. Lewis is a gifted songwriter with many gospel music albums to his credit including Faith, They That Wait, Ain't That the Truth and God of a Second Chance. His most recent work is a book, released in 2015 entitled, Only Believe.  Although this is his first book, it is by far one of the most important messages he can bring to the world. He is very passionate about all people understanding the importance of believing in God, even though we live in a society that continuously keeps people waning in fear and unbelief. 

Dr. Lewis and his wife Cerise have been married for 26 years. They have six children: Cierra, CJ, Ashley, Naomi, Joshua, and Daniel and two grandchildren. Dr. Connell Lewis can be heard weekly at Resurrecting Faith World Ministries, online, Metro Channel 75, and on Northwest Suburban Cable Channel 19 in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, which features the “Resurrecting Your Faith” broadcast.
