Favorite Biblical Story: The Apostle Paul’s conversion in Acts 9. Seeing God transform Paul from persecutor to professor of the Gospel, is a great showcase of God’s mercy and love!
Christ-Like Quality Worth Emulating: Self-Sacrifice. Putting aside our nature to be selfish to serve others, is a great quality to have.
Favorite Thing About FCA A place to talk about Jesus and Sports. My two favorite things!
I Follow Jesus Because: He gave it all for me, I want to honor him the best I can!
FAVES: Psalm 32:8, Chicago Cubs/Bears, Pizza and of course my Wife!

Favorite Biblical Story: the story of Peter. Jesus was very selective in choosing His disciples and chose men that were not perfect and had made many mistakes. I can relate to Peter in so many ways! Even with Peter's doubt, inquisitive nature, and impulsiveness, Jesus used him to teach the Gospel. Jesus directly, yet lovingly held Peter accountable for his mistakes, forgave him without question, and molded him into something beautiful to be used for God's glory. I love this because this gives me hope! I do not have to be perfect to be used by God! Whew!!
Favorite Thing About FCA: I love FCA because I get to work closely with middle school kids in a public school setting and encourage them to get to know Jesus on a personal level while working hard in a sport they love. There are so many requirements and challenges for athletes to overcome within their sport and the Bible is an awesome instruction manual. God's word teaches us how to be a good team member, follow the rules, respect our authorities, trust in the process, not be discouraged, and to focus on the goal. FCA does a phenomenal job at tying God's word to our responsibilities within a sport.
I Follow Jesus Because: I believe He is the one and only faithful and true God. He is my ROCK and without Him, my life would be very different. He has gifted me love, peace, forgiveness, purpose, and hope. I think it's really cool that these gifts (and many others) are available to all of us. Our God is good and worthy of all of our praise.
FAVES: Jeremiah 29:11, John 16:33, Triathlon, Elf (silly, I know), Anything Italian (especially cannoli), Definitely SUMMER

Favorite Biblical Story: The Parable of the Prodigal Son because it teaches us that there is nothing we can do that will stop God from loving us. No matter our past, or the bad things we have done, He is always there with open arms to welcome us back when we repent and turn our hearts towards Him.
Favorite thing about FCA: FCA is always the highlight of my week because I get to see firsthand middle school students drawing closer to Jesus every time we meet. I especially love how FCA draws in kids who don't attend church, and how they are able to hear about Christ's love for the first time in their lives.
I follow Jesus because: I couldn't imagine going through this world without Him. Without His Spirit and His presence, I don't know how I would survive in this day and age.
FAVES:Proverbs 3:5-6 ,UCLA football and basketball, tri tip, Braveheart, the Rose Bowl, fall

Favorite Biblical Story:The story of Jesus and the demoniac (Mark 5: 1-20) gives an example of a person who was beyond all hope of even finding hope. The passage shows that even the most severely defeated person can be completely restored - through Christ alone.
Favorite thing about FCA: The students, as Christians in a public school setting, can find a place of fellowship where their identity is valued in a time when many young Christians feel like they need to keep their heads low.
I follow Jesus because: He forgives me and loves me even as I tell him why he shouldn't. Then he helps me to offer the same to others
Faves: John 14:6, RC Cola, hockey, reading/hiking, Summer Wars
