How To Be The Best On-Stage Host

Many people think of the announcement time during a worship service as a boring, necessary evil. At The Connection Church, we think of it as a time to help people connect with opportunities that will make their lives even better. In this video, our Host Coordinator, Lauren Simcik, joins me to talk about some of the strategies we use to take our Host Time to the next level during our Celebration Services. Spoiler Alert: It’s all about CONNECTION!

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.
