Lead Your Team to Win at Easter

“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.” Colossians 4:5

Paul is talking about reaching people who are outside of the church. He says 2 things. First, “Be wise.” It takes wisdom to reach people who are not connected with a church family. Second, we need to leverage the opportunities that come our way to connect people with Jesus.

“Winning souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30

It’s time to wise up!

At The Connection Church, we have grown through Big Days like Easter.

Why are these Big Days like Easter so important?
A Big Day at Easter can…
  • Create excitement.
  • Create unity of purpose.
  • Create an awe moment for the community.

  • Focus your prayers.
  • Stretch your faith.
  • Encourage people to invite friends.
  • Make a big impact.
  • Increase your volunteers.

  • Have a “normal” service so people can see what your church looks like on a normal weekend.
  • Enlist people to serve.
  • Invite by spreading the word through social media as well as other means.
  • Consider additional service times.
  • Plan the service well.
  • Start a new series ON that day.

I’m a Connector, linking people with God and with others to experience the kind of life God has planned for them.

I am the founding and Lead Pastor of THE CONNECTION CHURCH in Buda, Texas. I previously served in churches around the state as youth pastor and as pastor before moving to Kyle in the Spring of 2004. I love to lead people to connect with God and those around them and thrive on changed lives. I earned a doctorate in missions and evangelism with an emphasis on church growth. My heart beats for helping people connect with God and connect with others in an authentic community of faith.

I love listening to and making music. I also enjoy hanging out with my family. Pam and I have been married since 1991 and we have two daughters, Makenzie and Bethanie. We are planting our lives in Hays County and allowing God to build a great church through us.
