Up until college, I found my identity mainly in sports and how well I performed. It’s what I knew and what I was good at. Letting my performance or the outcome of a game determine my worth was exhausting. Through the ministry of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), I learned what it meant and what it looked like to glorify God in all areas of my life; especially athletics. I realized these gifts weren’t given for my own glory but instead to build His Kingdom. The call to pursue international missions has been a process over the last 6-7 years, and the Lord has been working in my heart tremendously to lead me to commit to it full-time. Pushing me closer and closer to Him and His plan for my life. I have learned that not one moment of my life has been wasted, and every season has a purpose.
I now live in Northern Ireland working alongside an organization called Salt Factory Sports. SFS seeks to use sport to bring people together, build relationships and see people of all ages become enthusiastic followers of Christ who are living contagious Christian lives. Through camps, clubs, after-school programs and involvement in the local church, I get the privilege of sharing God’s love with those who are longing to know our Father. I want to tell people where their true identity is found and the beautiful freedom that we have in Him.
