Art Kopicky joined the ministry in 1993 to help expand the growing work. Prior to joining Teleios, Art also worked full time in the Young Life Ministry for 16 years.  Art has his Masters of Divinity from Regent College in Vancouver, B.C.

In October 2008, Shawn Petree joined Connie and Art. He also served on Young Life staff, in both Texas and Washington.  Shawn received his Masters Degree from Faith Seminary in Tacoma, Wa.  He is now focusing his work through Teleios with men 25-40 years old.

Jesus ministered in the context of a small group with His twelve disciples. A small group like Teleios helps us keep this sense of balance in our lives.

There are many other benefits you will experience in committing yourself to real fellowship by being a part Teleios. God intends for us to experience life together. For over 2,000 years followers of Jesus have regularly gathered in small groups for fellowship. If you have never been a part of a group, you do not know what you’re missing!

The foundation of the Teleios Ministry was built in 1970 by Conrad (Connie) Jacobsen, who has a Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. While serving full-time with the Young Life Ministry (working with high school students) he was asked by a group of men, who were supporting the ministry to meet with them on a weekly basis in the same way he was meeting with high school students. That group is still meeting today

We need others in our life. Gal. 6:2 tells us to “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Teleios helps us maintain this proper perspective in our lives.
