Our Team

The Connections Team

One word of explanation: you’ll notice we call everyone a “pastor.”  We know, it’s a really “churchy” word.  But it reminds us that everyone, in whatever role we serve, is called to take care of the people around us!

 

George Saylor – Lead Pastor

George grew up in western Pennsylvania and served as a campus minister in that area for many years following college. He pastored his first church in North Carolina and then planted a church in London, Ontario.  (Yes, there is a London in Canada!)  In 2014 he fulfilled his lifelong dream and moved to Colorado.  In September 2018 George lead the launch of Connections Church in Highlands Ranch.

In addition to his role in the church, George has a passion for serving the community. He serves on the Board of the Douglas County Winter Shelter Network, coaches mountain biking at Columbine High School, and teaches rock climbing classes with Foothills Parks and Rec.

George and his wife Robin have 3 children, Eden, Karis, and Justin, and a dog named Indy that they adopted on a mission trip to New Mexico.  George will drop just about anything to go biking or skiing. (No really, he will. Call him anytime!)

George holds an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science, a Master of Arts in Higher Education, and a Master of Divinity.


Chris Sanchez and family

Chris Sanchez – Worship Pastor

Chris Sanchez serves as Worship Director at Connections Church. Chris grew up in Southern California, where he studied music at Musicians Institute and served as a worship leader, before moving to Colorado in 2012. He has a passion for church planting and to see the local church rise.  Chris is responsible for recruiting, training and leading our team in leading worship at Connections.

Chris and his wife Alyssa have two beautiful twin daughters, Quinn and Aria. In Chris’ spare time, you can find him having tea parties with the twins or catching a romcom with Alyssa.


Kim Crane – Office Pastor

Kim is Connections Church Administrative Office Manager. She is the first one you meet when you come through the doors and will help you with whatever you need, or guide you to the right person. When asked recently about what she does, she laughingly replied, “whatever no one else does!” We are very appreciative for all she does for Connections Church.

Kim and her husband have 3 adult sons and one grandson. Kim enjoys spending time with her family, reading, skiing, gardening, crafting and just about anything adventurous outdoors.
