“I got started with FCA after God pulled me from student teaching and showed me that His plan for me was to go into full-time ministry. One of my good friends, Gracee Teague, who was on staff with FCA Volleyball introduced me to Sports Specific FCA, and I finally obeyed God’s calling on my life.
I am working for FCA because I love using the platform of sports, specifically the sport of soccer, to share the good news of Jesus! I am very passionate about sharing the redeeming love of our Savior Jesus Christ and restoring Identity in Him. I was shown how to combine my biggest passions, Jesus, and soccer, and I want everyone to experience the blessings that come from using sport to glorify the Lord and further His Kingdom.
