Apostles Ore’ and Linda Mahoney were each involved in ministry prior to meeting one another. On November 5, 2008 they met each other by divine providence. It did not take long for them to realize the LORD had set them up for His divine purposes. They knew God had ordained them to be a part of each other’s destiny in Christ. Realizing they were stronger together than separately, they began to see the loving hand of the LORD leading them into a sweet and tender relationship. That relationship would grow over the months that followed until they were joined together in holy matrimony on October 30, 2010. Ore’ and Linda celebrated the gift of marriage; Linda took on the name of her husband, and they began a new season in life, love and ministry together.
When the LORD brings changes into our lives there is a need to shift into the new direction He has for us. To do this we must leave behind the old, in order to embrace the new. Linda was the former Founder and President of Redemption Ministries International. Even as Ore’ and Linda shifted into a new season in life, they felt the ministry needed to have a fresh start as well. They decided to lay down the old name, and take up a new name for this new season in their lives. Therefore, Redemption Ministries International, as of January 1, 2012, became Connect U2 Christ Ministries. Ore’ is now serving as President of Connect U2 Christ Ministries.
Ore’ and Linda have their own unique styles of ministering, and between the two of them have experienced a wide range of ministry opportunities. Each allows the other to function in their God ordained ministry gifts, thus giving a fullness of expression to the ministry.
