How did you come to know Christ?

I came to know Christ by the example set by my parents. I grew up in a home where they showed me what it meant to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. My sophomore year in high school I chose to be baptized and started to understand what it meant to make my faith my own.

Why do you work for FCA?

To make Jesus known.

What’s your vision for FCA?

To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.

Coach who impacted you the most and why?

John Barney, assistant coach at Vanguard University. Coach was a consistent example my 4 years competing at Vanguard, being the same person whether during practice or outside of the gym with his family. His actions matched his words as a follower of Jeses, and in turn gained a great amount of respect from myself and all of his players.
