I‘ve grown up around FCA my whole life because my two older brothers, Brad and Brian were involved with FCA. But around junior high I really got involved. I became an officer my sophomore year


.


My two older brothers have been my biggest influence to join FCA. I’ve always looked up to them and to see them in an organization that combines our two favorite joys in life, Christ and sports I had no second thoughts about whether I should join. There was no doubt FCA was a perfect fit for me.


FCA encourages me to walk Christ like on and off the court. It relates stories and situations in the bible to situations that happen in sports. It makes it easier for me to understand the word and to act more Christ like when I play sports.


I’ve had a lot of injuries in my playing carrier so being able to lay all of my worries and struggles at Christ’s feet and trust him that he will guide me and carry me through everything has been the only reason I haven’t given up and quit. But to press on and keep working harder to reach my goal.


My favorite bible verse is, Proverbs 3:5-6. Because I don’t know what my future holds but to know that God does and I’m able to trust him is very comforting.

I’ve been involved in church and FCA pretty much my entire life. With two older sisters, I was always tagging along at FCA events, but junior high is when I starting to get involved on my own.


My family has always been Christian-based, so it was just natural to be involved in FCA, but our FCA leader Coach David Vallerand has always encouraged me to step out and lead. On and off the field, it gives you a peace. There’s a bigger picture at work. Playing sports gives you an opportunity to share with others. It’s helped me in athletics because you’re going to mess up, you’re gonna go through tough times, but we serve a God that gives us second chances and shows mercy and patience. And athletics and FCA just give you more opportunities to speak to people.


My favorite bible verses are Joshua 1:9 and Jeremiah 29:11-13. FEBRUARY 2012 | VYPEOK.COM 14 Wyndham Hotel - Tulsa
