I believe the only thing worthy of the gifts God has given us, is for us to use those gifts to bring honor to His name. This, I believe, is at the core of who we are in Christ. In the Lord’s Prayer it says, ‘thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven’. What does that mean? Well, it can mean a lot of things, but for me it means that I am to use the gifts that God has given me to be Jesus on this earth. To live a life that brings honor to the name of Jesus. To strive to be here and know, what will be one day be for eternity. Jesus showed us how, now we just have to follow. Athletics is no exception.

I believe the more like Jesus a student-athlete becomes the better athlete they will be. The better student they will be. The better spouse they will be. The better parent they will be. The list goes on and on and on and on. It is one of the great honors and privileges of my life to be able to use my gift of coaching to help bring others into this type of understanding, lifestyle, work ethic, community and accountability. In other words…to Win the Day!

As followers of Jesus we are to reflect Him in the way we lead, live and love. This is no different than what we are to reflect as coaches and as players. You can love God and love sports! As a matter of fact, you will be a better athlete if you do. That is what is at the core of our athletic program here at OCA, teaching young men and women how to Win the Day, spiritually, academically & athletically. This journey will lead the young man or woman to discover their gifts and how they can use those gifts to honor God…everyday.

So, do you love sports? Good, I do to, but the reason I love it is because God allows me to use athletics and their incredible reflection of life, to teach and learn about Him and how to challenge ourselves to Win the Day! So, join OCA on this journey of discovering who we are in Christ and how we can impact this world for the Kingdom through athletics.
Win the Day!
