Bittersweet Transitions

As the school year winds down, I’m left with a bittersweet taste in my mouth.  On one hand I’m excited and ready for all that this summer has in store for our ministry in Kansas City.  We have 15 interns showing up next week, a new camp starting in July, dozen of opportunities for discipleship and much more!  On the other hand, I’m sad to say goodbye to our campus huddles for a few months.  We have 39 huddles on school campuses and they are making an impact for the kingdom!

The most encouragement I received all year came from the group of coaches I met with every Wednesday morning at Blue Valley West high school.  Those coaches taught me so much and I loved hearing about the students in their classrooms and on their sports teams.  God is using their influence as a coach to impact hundreds of people for Jesus.  I can’t wait to see how God grows them over the summer in preparation for next school year!  FCA is doing everything we can to equip coaches to be the light of Jesus in our public schools.

  1. Please pray for dozens of leaders and an abundance of resources to better love, train and equip these coaches in order to see them impact more coaches and athletes for Christ.
  2. Please pray for God to send hundreds of athletes and coaches to camp this summer.  We desire 3D Camp to be the premier leadership camp in the KC Metro to empower athletes and coaches to impact their communities for Jesus Christ!
