This week’s Most Valuable Players are Dario & Maria Longoria! They have been serving in Konnection Kidz for about 2 years. Maria is a lead teacher in the 2′s & 3′s room with our Preschool. In addition to being a snazzy dresser,┬áDario serves in Elementary as a small group leader and a lead teacher as well as leading in KidKore (for the kids who are here for more than one service while their parents are serving).

The Longorias are servant leaders who are always willing to step in and serve wherever there is a need. They have 4 awesome kids — Ileana, Andrew, Janette & Joseph. Thanks Dario & Mario for using your talents to make a difference in the lives of our kids! You are our Connection MVPs!


We’ve got an awesome MVP this week! Monica McCracken has been serving on the Konnection Kidz Team since way back when we were at our first location at Tobias Elementary. She cares for our 1 year olds and also helps parents safely and securely check-in their children at the Kidz Kounter. She’s always consistent and reliable, and some of the descriptions of Monica include: flexible, great attitude, positive, and “whatever it takes!”

Monica, we’re so thankful for your faithful service with us! It’s an honor and privilege to get to serve alongside you. You are this week’s Most Valuable Player!


Here’s the long-awaited answer to this week’s most asked question: Who is this week’s MVP? It’s none other than the super Gretchen Bond! Gretchen has been a committed member of our Konnection Kidz Preschool Team for over 5 years where she serves with our Twos & Threes. Because of her great experience, we can always count on her to train new volunteers. Gretchen also steps up to serve at times other than the weekend for First Wednesday and any other time she’s needed!

Thanks Gretchen for being a partner in caring and teaching our kids to know and love God! You are this week’s Most Valuable Player!


Yes, Austin Wimberley is not just a legend, he’s this week’s Most Valuable Player! Austin faithfully serves on our Street Team, prepping the parking lot, being one of the first friendly faces people see as they drive onto the property, and helping our guests find the perfect parking spot. He’s one of the nicest, most humble dudes that you will ever meet and I’m so proud of the way Austin is growing spiritually and letting himself be used by God to help people get connected with Jesus!

Thanks Austin for all of your service on the team! You are making a BIG impact!


You’ve heard the legend of the Mighty Thor, but do know the Mighty TOR? Tor Cavazos is one of our students making a big difference in lives every week at The Connection Church. Tor is a senior at Hays High School and is on the drumline and is not waiting for graduation to start living out God’s calling on her life. With her great sense of of humor, she keeps those around her laughing. She is letting God use her by serving on the Wired Warriors Team with our house video. She plays in the Fuze Band and has shared her powerful story of life change several times, inspiring both students and adults to live for Jesus!

Tor has the right attitude of “Anything, Everything, or Nothing at All!” She is always willing to do whatever it takes as a part of our Connection Family. Tor Cavazos, we’re proud to have you on our team! You are this week’s Most Valuable Player!
