The Fellowship of Christian Athletes engages coaches and athletes to grow in their faith and sport.
My calling is see the world impacted for Jesus Christ, so FCA is a perfect fit. I have seen the power of God to change lives during 10 years of leading mission teams to Romania and Moldova for Crestview Baptist Church in Georgetown. Now we get to do the same thing right here in our schools!
I have the awesome opportunity to support the FCA Greater Austin team and share about how FCA can help coaches steward their students well. I am drawn to what FCA stands for: Integrity, Serving, Teamwork and Excellence.
The main part of my job is to build relationships. Those relationships involve the student leader, the coach, the church, the volunteer, the donor, and the board member. It takes a village to change a culture somewhere. God provides the people and the resources and my job is just to be faithful with these relationships. I love College ministry!! I didn’t know at 25 that I would be working my dream job of as a FCA Campus Director at Mississippi College. My wife and I were blessed to serve there for 6 years and experience an abundance of God’s grace during that time. FCA and my local church impacted me greatly at Mississippi State where I played baseball, and it was a big part of my story of growth in the Lord. FCA is where my faith was no longer my parents’, but it became my own. It is where I was encouraged to grow in the Word with other athletes. It is where the foundation of what it looks like to be an authentic leader started for me. What an opportunity God has given my wife and I to invest in the lives of these athletes and coaches at UT.
I serve with FCA at the college campus of University of Texas because I believe the college years are critical. Students make decisions in college that will affect them for the rest of their lives. I had a campus director while attending Mississippi State. Being involved in FCA in college gave me a family of people who would encourage, challenge and pray for me when I needed it. My walk with Christ deepened while involved with FCA in a way I hadn’t experienced prior to college. I want to create and facilitate that same opportunity for college students because of the impact FCA had in my life.
I have been on staff with FCA for 23 years, and I serve the Texas State University athletic dept. alongside my wife, Kim. I serve through FCA because it uses the platform of athletics and the influence of coaches to make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
I am the Area Director of Hill Country FCA. After 33 years in the Rio Grande Valley as the South Texas Director, it is a great blessing to now serve 20 schools in the Austin area. I serve coaches and athletes through FCA because I love being around sports to share His love, grace and mercy towards all.
My two passions in life have always been serving the Lord and sports!
