One of my favorite verses is 3 John 4. “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” Here at FCA it brings our staff “Great Joy” to see and hear of athletes and coaches “Walking in the Truth”! The question is how does this happen? It begins with God’s leading and God’s favor upon the ministry of FCA. But it also includes “You”! That’s right, your involvement and your investment helps our staff build the necessary relationships that allows us to minister and share truth with the coaches and athletes across our area. Your investment creates opportunities for student athletes to be trained by Christa Lanier to lead the local huddle. Your investment creates opportunities for our many Character Coaches to be trained and equipped by Chel Dill to impact the teams. Your investment creates opportunities for Chad Degnan to disciple the MTSU athletes and encourage them to use their platform to impact their entire campus. Your investment helps create opportunities for Brian Harrell to influence the coach to impact their team. Your investment brings all of us “Great Joy”!
But greater than the joy is the “Truth”. Your investment creates opportunities for all of the staff, all of our volunteers (huddle coaches and character coaches), all of our student athletes to share the “Truth” of Jesus Christ with their campuses and with their communities. I can’t promise that FCA will entertain today’s youth, or offer the most amazing camps or rallies, but I can promise that we will always be found faithful sharing the “Truth” in the locker rooms, practice fields, and across the campuses we minister at!
As you read the stories of our staff in this newsletter my prayer for you is that you see your role on our team and how your investment of time, financial support, and prayer impacts the next generation with the “Truth”. If you’re not connected to our team as a donor or as a volunteer, it’s my prayer that God will stir your heart to join our team and help us continue to “see the world impacted for Jesus Christ (the TRUTH) through the influence of athletes and coaches”.
