Local Church Youth Soccer League

I wanted to update you on something I mentioned a while ago. My pastor at our local church here in Lynchburg, VA has asked me to head up the launching of a youth soccer league at our church. The Lord has blessed the church with some land right next to the sanctuary that is perfect for sports outreach. He has also blessed the congregation with tons of kids, and they just keep coming! We envision this league as an opportunity for parents to come together for a great time of ministry. We also have a larger vision of reaching out to the local community to bring their children to play. The league will be volunteer-driven, which means the parents will be coaching, setting up cookouts, refereeing, and anything else that comes along. We trust the Lord will use this league to stir up conversations about what He is doing in our lives! We will start with two divisions. A three and four year-old division, and a five and six year-old division. If the Lord sees fit to grow the ministry, then we will add more age groups. We start registration this Sunday. We are looking forward to watching the Lord work! Please pray that the Lord will use me to further His kingdom through this ministry!

We continue to pray the Lord will provide for me to take the TEFL in September, as well as for a plane ticket to Iowa for the BILD Summit in November. Please pray the Lord would make clear His will regarding those events. Thank you for your continued support!
